Happy New Year wishes to you all. Megan Lynch and I received some exciting news to kick off 2010 - our song "Rocks and Water" was tied for #7 for Song of the Year, as voted by the 2,000+ radio announcers who contributed to the Folk DJ Charts. Our debut CD "let's do something..." was also part of their Album of The Year list, checking in at #33. Not bad at all for a fiddle and banjo duo!
After taking a few weeks off, Megan and I hit the road for concerts and workshops in Washington, Oregon and extremely northern California in the next couple of weeks. Please consider coming out to a show or being part of a workshop if you can make it. Here's all you need to know:
