scholarship

well my life has changed radically since my last update here! I was recently awarded the slaight family scholarship to the berklee college of music, a full-ride, full degree scholarship for a canadian that usually goes to a single entering student per year. this year they chose two, and we’re both vancouverites! the vancouver sun talks about it here. I’m honoured, and beyond excited to have the opportunity to spend the next four years at my dream school. the music that folks are making out there is nothing short of mindblowing, and I can’t wait to be a part of it all.

so I’m trying to organize my life for the big move down to boston, in the midst of summer touring fun. I just wrapped up with sarah jane scouten, far too soon. our first outing was a great success, and along with her own lovely music she got me all excited about shape-note singing, some american vocal traditions I’ve never explored. now I have a couple of days off at home to work up some solo material for sendoff concerts in vancouver and victoria! details soon.

another big source of excitement is the upcoming release of sameus, the duo album I recorded with the amazing multi-instrumentalist michael caplin in norway last fall! it’s not quite out yet, but you can hear a teaser track on our website.
