In April I'll be heading to the UK to record with Damien O'Kane at Pure Records in Yorkshire, then heading to Sore Fingers bluegrass/old time camp near Oxford, and finally finishing out on tour with Tony Furtado - come out to a show if you can.

I think John Hartford's liner notes for Rounder 0044 may be the best liner notes ever. I was a 13 year-old kid reading these notes while listening to J.D. Crowe & the New South absolutely kick my wobbly-timing little butt all over Torrance. My first official action following said butt-kicking was to get a metronome and use it daily.
Putting final touches on A Light So Fair, my new recording of original peaceful guitar instrumentals. Eric Uglum is mixing in California while I'm overdubbing folks here in Tennessee. Sierra Hull sang last week, Suzanne Cox was yesterday, Kate Rusby and Damien O'Kane are adding vocals in Yorkshire at Pure Records, and my own Erica Block will be adding her vocals today in my studio here. It'll be out in late Spring/early Summer. #wordlessvocals
