Advance Tickets Avaiable! 

I just returned from a fabulous trip East! It began with my first ever Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in Hillsdale, NY and ended with a sweet songwriting retreat in Maine led by my dear friend and mentor, Catie Curtis. I'm feeling refreshed and ambitious.

Back in Duluth, MN I am gearing up for my August 28th concert at The Underground. The performance of new and old original material will be recorded and, if all goes well, released on a live album ASAP! Tickets for the show are $12 in advance (http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2152836) $15 at the door. Join me at 7pm on the 28th and add your laughter, tears and applause to the record. Feel free to leave screaming babies at home...

On September 12th I head back East to open for Cheryl Wheeler (yahoo!) in MD and then travel north to Boston, playing tunes along the way. If any of you have leads for folks along the East Coast who may want to host a tiny living room concert, please pass them along! 

Looking further ahead, I return to NC in October to play for the LEAF Fall Festival as the winner of this year's LEAF Newsong Contest. Again, if you or your friends are interested in hosting a small house concert in the Asheville or Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area, let me know!

Save the Date!
