Damien O'Kane and myself with Michael McGoldrick, Stevie Byrnes, and Duncan Lyall at Underneath The Stars Festival in Yorkshire, England this past July. The first tune is mine, "Lucky Rogues," and the second is Damien's, "Frantic Inspiration."

Kate Rusby, "Santa Never Brings Me a Banjo," banjo by yours truly - always a thrill to play on a track by Kate Rusby and Damien O'Kane.

I’d completely forgotten about this stage plot I’d sent my friend Jonathan Noel for a concert with Sierra Hull and Clay Hess.

Apologies for using this page to record one of my daughter's rock bands. My iPhone ran out of space. Thanks for all the nice comments. NOTE: If there are videos that come up in your feed, and you click them and don't like them, all you have to do is pass them by. No outrage or insults necessary.

I've known Sierra since she was 11 years old. We were on the Great High Mountain/Cold Mountain tour together in the early 2000s, made her first record Secrets together, I've played shows and tours with her band, and we have played many duo shows throughout the years. She always brings musical joy and is a great friend. I'm looking forward to this show at the Ozark Folk Festival!

This is our rippin’ electric guitarist James Mitchell and myself with Daniel Patterson. Daniel is our guitar tech, sets us up, takes care of the instruments, and keeps the show rolling seamlessly by handing me in-tune guitars at precisely the right time. He plays guitar, writes song, and builds and repairs guitars, so he’s got a good touch when it comes to tech-Ing. Daniel, ya rocked it.

I recorded this 1874 Frances Havergal hymn this morning using a 1938 Martin D18 through a Requisite Audio L7. Danny at Requisite also designed the Black Lion converters I'm using.

Soundcheck with Michael Martin Murphey at Franklin Theatre for tonight’s show. Fun to be playing on several songs.

Picking up five 1930 doors from the War Memorial in Dickson, in our 1988 Dodge pickup, stopping by Huff’s Grocery for sandwiches and iced tea on the way home, discussing quantum physics, theology, consciousness, and the simulation hypothesis with this ridiculously smart son - living the quintessential Tennessee country life today.

Fabulous day in San Francisco and in Santa Rosa playing at the Luther Burbank Center. This was the last U.S. show of the Alison tour this year. Three more shows in late October in Dublin, London, and Edinburgh - I can’t wait to see some of my amazing U.K. friends!

Interview with Bluegrass Today on my record with Irish banjo ripper Damien O'Kane.

It was a wonderful day and evening at Knoxville’s Tennessee Theatre, now celebrating 90 years of shows. The audience was beautiful. Plus I got to see some of my favorite human beings. Extra bonus: there was a juicer in catering.

It was great fun to talk with Gene Parker and Alan Mills of the Lost & Found at the Alison show in Roanoke (in the first photo with me, and second photo with Barry Bales and Sidney Cox), and at the Cherokee show to see the man who discovered the Fountain of Youth, Bernie Velluti, our AKUS soundman for years (third photo - Bernie and two of our fab crew guys - Herb and Gordon).
