Myself and Eric McDonald will soon be taking to the roads of New England promoting our new album, The Sunny Hills. We'll be kicking things off in our hometown of Portland, Maine, Wednesday, April 1st at Blue, with the show starting off at 7:30. From there, we'll be traveling down to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Arlington, Massachusetts, and a number of dates in Vermont. Check out the Upcoming Dates page for more details; I'll be hoping to see you out there.
I'm incredibly excited to be teaching and performing this weekend at Maine Pipes and Fiddle, here in Portland. I'll be joined by Andrea Beaton, Ed Pearlman, and Ben Miller for two days of teaching and performing the finest of Cape Breton and Scottish music. There's still some space available in the workshops, and we'll be having an instructor's concert on Saturday night at the Portland New Church. Get yourselves out for this one, folks, it's going to be wildly fun.
