Spent two dreamy days singing Greg Copeland songs with @tylerchester, Greg Leisz, and Jay Bellerose at @barefoot_recording. Los Angeles was rainy and hopeful. (And thanks for your guitar, @madicunningham)
Thank you for two beautiful days, LA
I’ll be warming up the stage in just a few for @thenicklowe! And look who’s playing here June28 at @franklintheatre
I’m pumped to be opening for @thenicklowe with @losstraitjackets at @franklintheatre next week!
Carnegie Hall sounded just gorgeous last night thanks to @punchbrothers and @nickelcreek. Brilliant show! Standing O for the music and @sarawatkins white boots. Had my pocket picked on the way to the show — by my own rascal brother trying to teach me a lesson.
I got to sing some harmonies with songbird Joy Williams on her beautiful new record, Front Porch. It was fun/ terrifying singing live harmonies to a Olympic gymnast of a singer. I‘ll be raising a sweaty glass to this record and Joy on my front porch tonight
Looking forward to the end of summer with the first real hot day here and this happy announcement. Thanks @folksongsociety #philadelphiafolkfestival
I found a bridge of violets in the woods
Playing Nashville’s sweet @bluebirdcafetn tonight with pals @markerelli @robbyhecht and @carolinespence_. The music will feel warm and cozy with a little bit of sun and a solid base of shadow like this photo by @davidmcclisterphotography
I even enjoyed the long snowy ride home with these two. Thanks @misstessmusic and Mr. Thomas @ilikemusicto0 for a fun Ohio tour.
Thanks to the friendly blue people of Newark, OH we had a ball last night. Ohio tour finale tonight at GAR Hall w @misstessmusic and @ilikemusicto0 Thanks for the photo, @heidimunc
Newark, OH w Tess and Thomas.
This weekend’s guaranteed to be a fun one, for me at least. @misstessmusic and @ilikemusicto0 join me on our Ohio weekend tour. Newark (3/1) is sold out, but tickets remain for GAR Hall in Peninsula (3/2)
February Letter includes a new video from @thebluegrasssituation and tour starts tonight in MA. Read all about it (link in profile)
Two of my favorite words to see together, and barn is perhaps my favorite word of all. Heading north today to Newburyport, MA and The Word Barn in Exeter, NH tomorrow. Still some seats available in Newburyport tonight. @oshimabrothers open both shows.
Have you heard Maya’s new record yet? I’ve been lucky enough to watch her songs evolve over the past decade and I’m inspired by and in awe of my friend. This record is her solo debut, but she’s no novice. Maya roadtested her songs and heart with her band @thestraybirds for ten years and now she’s forging ahead solo. Follow along with her, catch her live, listen to her records. She is worth your time. @mayadevitry
What is it like? Exhilarating/humbling/gratifying/terrifying. Mostly it was just plain fun and I’m thrilled @americanafest invited me. Here’s photo evidence from @elli_lauren that my knees were not knocking the entire time, and the impressive load-bearing capacity of the Troubadour stage.
And then, one of my favorite bands and albums (and my favorite person) got a GRAMMY! What a weekend! I’m overwhelmed.
Singing a John Prine song to the man himself with @noampikelny and @sarawatkins, and then singing along with him on Paradise with this band of talented Prine fans — such a thrill! Thank you @americanafest for inviting me, and @mollyjay for the photo
