What is Next??

I have decided it is finally time for an Autoharp CD!. I am planning to write some new music for the instrument this winter, and plan to dig up some interesting things from the vaults. I am planning for a Spring 2002 release-- maybe early summer. I don't have a title for it yet, and have not decided on the line-up of songs. I have just decided that it is time. (Sorry if it is a few years late.) It will most likely not be all-instrumental.

What a guitar workshop at the Ossipee Valley Bluegrass Festival in Cornish ME last July! I guess you recognize me on the right, but that is Bryan Sutton on the L, Cape Breton superpicker J.P. Cormier (hat), and Maine legend Denny Breau.Those guys are so hot it made me want to play autoharp full-time.


What I did on My Summer Vacation... Entering Real Manhood, proudly posing with my first Sawzall. Feels a little different from an autoharp. (I do feel more powerful.) I decided not to hire professionals when the time came to remove part of my barn. Yes, those are big roof beams. Like almost everything I do, it was harder than it seemed when I decided to start. I was careful, and didn’t even break a nail. Fingernail that is.


It’s not often that a man gets to pose with 4 of his all-time favorite musicians, in a short time, close to home, in the same shirt. I went to see Doc Watson (below), and said hello backstage at the show he did with Leo Kottke (below with me and Joyce Andersen.)

Scottish folk legend Dick Gaughan (below) who is my all-time favorite singer, was kind enough to play a concert for the Seacoast Guitar Society, and came over to my house for coffee and conversation. Considering how gnarly we look you would not guess it was the beautiful sunny morning of Sept 10. I should have used Photoshop to make us look happier (we really had a more pleasant time than this picture shows) in these pics, but I am glad enough to get the “me+hero” photos at all, and you can’t always have a good hair and face day also. It was a good coffee day.
