I am excited to announce my new record “The Lost Summer” which is coming this spring! I’m working on finishing it up, having started the recording process a couple years back, in late 2021. I am running a crowd-funder to get it over the finish line and would be so grateful if you’d consider helping me out. You can pre-order the album, I’m putting together a brand new book of my tunes which you can order, there are fiddle lessons, photographic prints and you could commission me to write a tune!
I just had a brilliant weekend of shows with the core band for the record - Conor Hearn on guitar, Ethan Setiawan on mandolins and Brendan Hearn on cello. It was so lovely to play in some places that are special to us - One Longfellow Square in Portland and The Dance Hall in Kittery, Maine and back in the Boston area, at Club Passim in Cambridge.
This weekend I’m headed out for some shows with Corner House, going as far as Delaware, with a couple shows in New York and one in Rhode Island.
My duo with Ethan Setiawan, Hildaland, has a new record, “Sule Skerry” coming out on the 3rd of November! Preorder/save that now, here. The first two singles are out now and a third, the title track, comes out on the 25th of October. We are also delighted to say that we are going to be in Glasgow for Celtic Connections festival in January. We have a few other shows coming up in Maine, Indiana and Michigan as well, find the info here.
Lots of fun things in the works for 2024, I can’t wait to share! I’ll leave you with some film shots from some time in Maine with family.
