In addition to moving forward with some exciting recording projects and a host of performances I am now co-producing a String Ensemble in the Henry County area. If you or someone you know plays a bowed string instrument and would like to participate just contact me for more information. We meet once a month and  have participants from Henry, Franklin and Patrick Counties. All ages are encouraged. Sight reading of music notation is mandatory. 

I also host a Songwriters Showcase every first friday of each month at the Daily Grind Coffee House in Martinsville. Mic opens at 7:30, each performer is alotted up to 3 songs or 15 minutes. Possible second round depending on attendance. Acoustic setting, must be original material, merch sales allowed. There is also usually a fine artist invited in house to promote their craft as well. Hope to see you there!
