my first semester in boston is almost over, would you believe? living in a house full of fiddlers has been every bit as fun as I had imagined. school’s been a whirl, overwhelming at times but the heavy workload’s been balanced by the fun workload of things like traditional arabic microtonal theory class and old-time ensemble with bruce molsky. this is quite an extraordinary institution. I’ve been doing some duo playing with a fantastic bass player called nathaniel sabat, and we made a bass / hardingfele video in my turret room the other day – check it out!

I’m headed back to the west coast every so soon, and I’ll start off the new year at one of my favourite places on earth, fiddlehead studios on mayne island, working on a new record with the jenny ritter band. after a couple weeks in studio we fly to glasgow for our first gig at celtic connections! I was at the festival as a visitor last year, had a grand ol’ time, and I’m thrilled to join the ranks for their 20th anniversary.
