I'm glad to be a part of the 5th annual Open Tuning Fest. I will be taking the stage with my very talented student Nicolas. We have a special set planned out and look forward to sharing it with all the attendees and passers-by. Nicolas will be debuting a few of his own original songs.

This festival in particular has provided a very good opportunity for many of my students to play their first live shows. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this free festival - I am very appreciative of your efforts to being music to this community.

Our set is at 3pm at Venue 16 2 Follis "Folking Right". See you there!

Sarah Hiltz - Beauty In The Blue

My dear friend and musical sister is releasing a new collection of songs under the name of “Beauty In The Blue”. This collection of songs orbit around the themes of beauty, unity and hope. Each song is a bright star within a constellation that represents the search for beauty in tragedy, loss, despair, risk, and tough decisions. 

I was very honoured when I was asked to be involved in the recording process. It was such an enjoyable process and took almost as long as a Steely Dan record. But I'm quite glad it lasted the year that it did!! Amazing work by everyone involved in bringing these songs to life (@kevinhowley@jordanpm416 , @mistacarta1980@joshgbowman@srhiltz et al) and thank you Sarah for your brilliant talent, leadership, organizational skills, and tour de force awesomeness!!

The album release will take place tomorrow at the Burdock. Doors at 8:30pm Show at 9pm.
