One and All, Please take a minute to check out this Ray Bonneville Kickstarter. Ray is raising funds for his new record. I was in on the basics, recording in Austin, TX, with the fabulous Justin Douglas engineering at King Electric Recording ( https://www.facebook.com/pages/King-Electric-Recording/658213274333906?ref=br_rs ). We captured some great moments and smokey grooves. I am honored to be working with Ray as well as Andre Bohren, Geoff Arsenault, and Gurf Morlix. Great songs, great players….check it out!

I’m pleased to be going to Austin to do some recording with amigo Ray Bonneville. New Ray record, Yeah! Looking forward to working with Ray and drummer Andre Boren in the studio.

From there we’ll be venturing north to home town, Tulsa, to play at The Colony on Wednesday Feb 15th.

Folk Alliance is next on the itinerary, with a main stage showcase on Thursday the 16th and a Saturday Workshop with me imparting my experience of playing accordion with other instruments, bands and sitting in type stuff.  Talk big, act smart.
