Hey there Boston area, No Depression friends…

I am releasing a new project called ‘Blood & Water’ and have been offering a free download of the project in celebration of the New Year, new music, and new beginnings. I hope you will check it out, download it if you like it, and share with your friends (either in person or on social networking sites, I’m not picky). After this evening it will be back to that pesky "pay for" option.


Thanks for the support and keep on keeping on!

Hi There ,  I just joined Boston Music Scene, I'm gratified to see all the gig listings in one place. I'm all over the map (Celtic, Cajun, Country, Bluegrass, blues, etc., anything rootsy)  both as a performer and a fan.
