Make sure you know the “Golden Rule”. This album includes some toe tappin’ jigs-n-reel’s, a few lovely waltz’s and two really nice songs about what’s right in this world.
GREAT mando recording session this weekend @ More Sound Recording Studio with Jocko and Merle for Dale Randall’s -yes sir, his Dad’s upcoming album. If you like the Beatles and Gordon Lightfoot – you’ll dig his songs!
Spent 2 days @ Subcat Studios with some very fine musicians recording Mark Doyle’s string arrangements for his Guitar Noir project. Can’t wait to hear the finished product!
My student Lulu Fallon bangin’ out some solid backup to “Liberty”! And um, that’s her cousin, also my student, Fiona Weichert -one of the few trad. violists out there with one massive smile!!
