Long time, no update. Here’s the Reader’s Digest scoop. I continue to enjoy my work teaching privately at my studio & my classes at Old Town School. I still teach and play with a rotating solo Beatle acoustic ensemble at the school (currently session 1 of George Harrison, of which there will be 2) and my long-running Art Rock Ensemble (team-coached with the multi-talented Bob Goins) continues to grow & amaze. I maintain 2-3 core guitar classes at the school as well. And I’ve had the pleasure of sub-teaching many classes, most notably Steve Dawson’s long-running Songwriting class on Sunday.
I’ve been rehearsing, performing, recording in the studio, playing & enjoying family life, sports, books, & other people’s music. As far as ‘music career’ touchstones in the past 10 months I have had the pleasure of playing wonderful music with the likes of Phil Angotti & friends, a brief but educational stint with The Cheetles, Lara Filip’s “Birdie Wing” project (produced by Liam Davis), Mark William Johnson (a musician friend I have been playing on/off with for 25 years now) Dave Sills, Paul Maich (a record being produced by Anne Heaton, engineered by Dan Glomski) Ross Freeman (record being produced by Steve Dawson) Bill Brickey & Alton Smith’s children/adult projects, and most recently filling the electric guitar/backing vocal roll in a newer Art Rock group called Razorhouse (fronted by writer Mark Panick) and many others I’m probably forgetting. A digital painting by the great artist Tom McKeon is pictured above from my first Razorhouse show at Mayne Stage Theater this past week. Cheers! I’ll try to get back in the swing of updating here regularly again, in time.
