The view from upriver in Strawberry, CA. I’ve got an ambitious list of songs to finish before heading home…however, we passed Neil Young driving LincVolt on the way up here, so that feels like an auspicious start!
A little Belgian ink for Texana, courtesy of Rootstime. The roadtrip association gloriously persists, as they write that the album is “…ideally suited to be used in a convertible Cadillac during a long car ride along the endless deserted highways in Texas. Played loud.” Enjoy a comically tenuous google translation here.
TBT to this past May in Nashville, and the wedding of my friends Dan Knobler and Carrie Crowell. Andrew Ellis took this photo of myself and Sean O’Brien at the wedding. Together, Dan, Sean and I have played a lot of gigs and have recorded a few batches of country-rock songs. Great memories of May, where we celebrated Dan and Carrie’s marriage with lots of music and friends.
The Club Kuumbwa concert series I book for Kuumbwa Jazz in Santa Cruz presents its first-ever Bluegrass Roundup this Saturday, featuring the Central Coast’s finest string bands: Steep Ravine, Windy Hill and Joshua Lowe & The Juncos.

The reviews are in! The Ranch Hands and I played a Yelp event at Hill Country Barbecue-Brooklyn on Tuesday, having a fine, rocking time and serving up “kick ass Texas tunes.” I also enjoy another sage reviewer’s words: “The highlight of the event for me was probably the vodka and the band.”
