Shakori Hills

Well folks, thanks for all your support over the years, my first big goal I made for myself as a performing musician was to be booked at this here music festival. (www.shakorihillsgrassroots.org) So I made the bill! I'm thrilled! I will be playing with the Laura Thurston Band, (Gwyn Waller, Stuart McNair and Ella Patrick) on the Grove Stage Thursday at 9:30pm. I hope to see you all there!
