Regional Weekend: Buckley, North Bend & Everett, WA [EB30]

What an incredibly busy weekend. I was in the process of moving to a new place and had three shows. Each evening of music was a nice break after moving and cleaning during the day but it made me a little goofy at times.

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a video but I’m back at it with this central Washington Regional Weekend in Othello and Moses Lake. The high desert scenery and wonderful people made this trip a nice break from the Puget Sound area.

Announcing The Solstice Tour 2016!

This summer is going to be incredible and for more than one reason. Three reasons to be exact. We’ll start with the first… a seven date, three state excursion in June I’m calling The Solstice Tour 2016! That’s right, I’m headed back on the road. But what about those other two reasons, you ask? I have two more tours planned for this summer to round out a summer tour trilogy and it all begins with The Solstice Tour!

Regional Weekend: Seattle, WA [EB28]

Finally, an all banjo episode of Expressway Balladeer. I mean, how did we get twenty-eight episodes into this series without an all banjo, all the time show? Anyways now that it’s here, I have some fun restringing my banjo with guitar strings to see if I can get a different sound out of it. Then I talk about my history with the banjo and play in downtown Seattle.

Regional Weekend: Hillsboro, OR [EB27]

Oregon’s Craigslist has been kind to me recently. The first weekend of March, I picked up a show through a Craigslist ad in Madras with at the first Friday event hosted by Organic Earthly Delights and this past weekend I picked up a show in Hillsboro at Primrose & Tumbleweeds. The Madras show was a little dark and I couldn’t get good footage but I had a fair amount of light for an episode of Expressway Balladeer so after a week without an episode, I’m back at it.

St. Brigid’s Brewery Beer and Music Pairing

After my show at St. Brigid’s Brewery in Moses Lake, WA, the beer maker and owner, Tom, was kind enough to send me home with some of his beer. Of course, I took the opportunity to do another beer and music pairing but this one turned out much different than I expected. In a good way though.

How to Remember Lyrics in Folk Music

Since I often play three to four hour shows, people frequently ask me how I remember lyrics to each and every song I play. To be honest, my memory is awful. Really, it’s incredibly bad. The trick in remembering lyrics lays in the tradition of folk music and why it exists in the first place.

Kulshan Brewing Beer and Music Pairing

Before I left my show at Kulshan Brewing Company in Bellingham last week I was sure to buy a six pack to enjoy at home. I choose the Red Ale. I’m not sure why. I hadn’t tasted it that night but that’s what I grabbed and I’m glad for it. After having one at home a day or so later, I decided that it would be another great beer to pair with music.
