Notes From the Road

September 10th, 2018


My goodness where did the summer go? It's been lovely to have been back here in my old home in Taos, NM., I played a few great concerts and completed much needed repairs to my old house here. So many good friends from all over came to visit here in the high country, there was no shortage of grilled dinners outdoors and musical jams galore. After much restoration work my little house is looking great and the weather lovely with a coolish hint of fall in the air.

But like the small southbound warblers passing through the trees here these mornings, it's time to migrate. I'll be traveling back to the Pacific Northwest with musical stops all along the way ending with a special sacred service event in Port Townsend, WA. Then finally back home to Portland where I'll spend the rest of the fall and winter composing, performing, recording, teaching and planning my 2019 tours and travels.

So with the east wind to my back I'll be hitting the road in about a week and will be delighted to see you all on down the road and back in the City of Roses.
