I have to give thanks to our fantastic audience!!
I must say that this was a very intense working year, but I am very happy with the music we created – both live and on the two CDs we recorded – the new Christmas album “christmas + santa fe” which was released last week, and a new album called “Little Wing” for release next May.
A few Concerts that stand out in my mind are:
Playing in front of 7,000 people at the wonderful Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City in September.
The amazing acoustics of the Troy Savingbank Music Hall in Troy, New York.
The acoustics of the Wilmington Grand Opera.
The pleasure of playing at Yoshi’s in Oakland four nights in a row in February.
The concert at the St.Michelle Winery.
The concert at the Laurie Auditorium in San Antonio in September.
But also the awful din over which we had to play at the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut: Imagine a C dominant seven chord that plays throughout the casino and to which all of the one armed bandits are tuned….and then imagine trying to play any other chord over that…
I hope you enjoyed our return to a smaller, all acoustic band this year as much as we did. However, for next year we are planning something bigger again…..Look for us in the Summer. Thank you all.
