New record is here!

I'm happy to say that my 2nd solo album is happening...right now, right here! "The Tumbling River"  is 8 new original songs, and 4 covers (Stanley Brothers, Ola Belle Reed, and the ubiquitous "Traditional"). I'm joined by a some great musicians on this recording - Burke Carrol, Andrew Collins, Brian Kobayakawa, Ivan Rosenberg, Simone Schmidt, Kristine Schmitt, and John Showman.

"The Tumbling River"  is only available for download directly from this website (not  ITunes, CD Baby, etc). You have a choice between MP3 or FLAC format, with a secure payment system. You can also order physical copies from this site, or get one from me at a live show.  Click here or on the image below if you'd like to hear the songs, and perhaps purchase the album.

We're honored to be chosen for both these great events.

I've got lot's of good stuff on the go right now. Coming up in June I'll be on the road with Anne Louise Genest in Saskatoon (plus one date in Alberta). Anne Louise is one of my best friends and luckily, she's also a hell of a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist. If you're in the great flat province, check out the shows page for a show near you!
