This is our take on one of the greatest Hunter/Garcia songs.
We tried to make it sound like a Zen Garden seen through the imagery of Gary Snyder. Thanks to our friends Terry Longshore on tablas, and Aidan O'Donnell on bass, Grant Gordy on guitar, Mila Phelps-Friedl for the harmony vocals.
We'll be playing this at our Xmas shows this year.

A fascinating Fall season with shows all over the country in many different formats. If variety is the spice of life, it's been an extremely piquant season.

We had Freshgrass, IBMA, the Celtic Colours Festival, another fantastic Orchestra concert in the Flint Hills, and shows in November with Mr Sun. See the Calendar, if it works.
Mr Sun is now being represented by the amazing Myriad Artists.

I'm still plugging away on my Online Fiddle School at Artistworks.com ; it's a source of joy. If you're a fiddler who's been thinking of improving your playing, or wants to learn more about fiddling in general, you might want to give it a try.
