New Music and Online Concerts 

This is a time of big changes for me as a musician. After many years of playing with various ensembles and bands I have decided to take this time to focus on music that I feel most passionate about. I have lots of creative ideas right now and I am looking forward to trying them out. I will mostly be working as a solo musician, although I already have met with other like-minded musicians to cook up some wonderful new sounds with them too. I will definitely be playing more Scandinavian-American music than I have in the past several years, but there likely will be fusion with other genres in ways to make it new and more alive. 

Besides giving a glimpse at what type of music I'll play, here are some immediate plans that you will see implemented in the near future:

Although I have hosted a concert series at the Art Sanctuary of Indiana for five years, I have decided that at this point I will focus on my career as a musician, and I'll support other people who organize concert series rather than having additional responsibilities as a concert organizer myself. If you live in Indiana and you have been a fan of my concert series, then I thank you from the bottom of my heart! I hope that the music that you have heard has broadened your horizons. I also want to give a heartfelt thanks to all of the many people who have volunteered for my series in the past several years! If you want to hear more live music locally then I recommend seeing what I have written below as well as attending the concert series hosted by the Morgan County Concert Association.

Although I won't any longer be bringing in other musicians with the object of showcasing them, I will be utilizing an online program that will allow me to give on-the-web concerts, often with other musicians.  This will allow fans to hear my music from virtually anywhere in the world. These will be live concerts, and most of them will not be recorded or archived. So, if people want to hear them they have to attend each special, online concert. I really like the idea of this since I have quite a collection of instruments from around the world and I don't want to carry them around to various gigs (not to mention the difficulty of taking them all on flights or trains). Online concerts allow me to perform a greater number of instruments in a set up that is more comfortable and convenient for me. I plan to have many of these concerts from my studio, and if there is space a small number of live audience members may be able to attend. I will not have to do much advanced work to set up since the concerts will be in my studio. 

Soon I will share with you the music that I am passionate about! I'm delighted at having a new way to share it with people who live both near and far!


Gig Dates Not Always Shown 

Depending on my schedule I may not have time to list dates when I am performing. I usually perform at least every weekend and sometimes I go for weeks or months without posting information for my upcoming gigs. My apologies for those of you who check my website to find out about upcoming gigs! If you don't see any upcoming gigs listed on my website calendar (or if it looks like not much is listed) then feel free to send me an e-mail and I will be happy to respond to your questions about upcoming gigs.
