It was a full and inspiring summer to say the least. I had the great fortune of playing, touring and collaborating with an incredible roster of musicians including Ashleigh Flynn, Robin Jackson, Takahsi O’hashi, Casey Neill, Alejandro Escavedo, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Bob Soper, Elizabeth Nicholson, Zak Borden, Cary Novony, Danny O’hanlon, Kevin Burke, Bronnie Griffin, Christopher Hayes, Don Henson, Skip Vonkuske, Caroline Keys and Ara Lee. I saw an incredible amount of music and met many great musicians. I feel so grateful to speak the universal language of music, and have renewed faith in the power of music to create peace and connect people around the planet. I feel sure that the energy of the summer will continue to fuel and inspire my fall and winter.
The summer also brought out some new original music. I have been writing new songs and instrumental tunes and have begun to record them in anticipation of a new album (or maybe double album) of original and traditional music. I head back to Europe for the greater part of October and will be making a trip to California and the east coast in November. December will feature a run of Winter themed shows in celebration of the holidays. I hope to see you soon at a show or out in the world! Until then, stay tuned for new music and upcoming tour dates. In peace – KC
