Video release and Tour and new EP!

Wow, there is so much happening this summer! I don't think I realized just how much was going on until this week, but I'm excited and ready for it all. 

My dear autoharpist Leah Dolgoy and I finished recording a brand new EP last month. It is finally mixed and mastered, and we'll be printing copies to be ready for release in July! We wanted to make an EP that was mostly acoustic, showcasing the beauty and interplay of the autoharp and banjo (and sometimes guitar), and we invited some of our very special musician friends to collaborate, including Cecile Doo-Kingué (electric guitar), Sam Gleason (electric guitar), Ari Swan (violin) and Quinn Brander (cello). We can't wait to share it with you. 

In the meantime, we recorded a little live off the floor video with Grace Glowicki of one of the singles - a cover of Hank Williams' I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry. The video will be out next week, so keep your eyes open.

For now, I leave you with my first batch of tour dates! I'll be travelling as a duo with Sam Gleason for the Ontario dates and solo for the east coast run. Don't worry, West Coast dates (all with Leah!) will be released shortly! I am so pleased to announce that my first show will be with Old Man Luedecke, one of my banjo heroes. Details below.
