What is this recording about? Darol Anger, Joe Walsh, Courtney Hartman, Lukas Pool, and Sharon Gilchrist joined forces for a relaxed picking session in which humor, imagination and spirited musical conversation percolate. It's an almost-live recording of a band, playing stuff you'd want to hear around the weekend breakfast table, late at night, or on a pleasant drive. The thing about the American string music world is that most fans also play music themselves. The "audience" is not much different from the "pros". Each sector drives the other. So this recording is for everybody. This band is not one you're likely to hear out on the fester or club circuit. It's a rare and special convening of mutual admirers who happen to enjoy each others' musical conversation. A multi-generational summit meeting of like-minded musical groovers. A fortuitous conclave in the Boston String Music Enclave. So we rounded up some of Darol & Joe's orphan originals, a couple of ragin' Fiddle Tunes Of The Moment, and a trio of Requia for folks we loved. We spent all of 2 & a half days tracking these ten tunes; the general feeling is sparky, informal, and kind of emotional sometimes. We didn't try to fix every note, either. …And where will you find that pesky groove? Even the FBI will tell you: look in the E–AND-A section of your local bar.

Now living in Nashville, Tennessee; barely believing it. But OK. Every day is now an Extra Bonus Life Mile day...
I'm still doing a lot of fun Artistworks Fiddle School stuff and looking at a whole new landscape out the window.
Whole new internal landscape too, even though I keep having the same old Disastrous Sound Check dreams.
I get to visit with some excellent young musicians friends.
I even have some shows with Mr Sun lined up for this fall!
... And I bought my first actual purchased lawn mower.
