Great News! The new album, "Elf King's Horn" is now done and at the publisher! I should have it in hand before leaving for Illinois and PSG! Once I get back, I will love being able to send out all the perks and thank yous to the folks that helped me on the Indiegogo campaign!   So.... here's a sneak peak at some of the album art by Joe Molnar!

  Wow!  This was such a lovely surprise!  In September, I will receive an award recognizing my participation in the Arts for Stark County!  I feel very proud to be honored this way and I hope I can help folks see more of all the great talent and creativity that is all around us!   

A huge "Thank You" to Barbara Ross and all the volunteers who serve this community!

Euclid City Limits was wonderful...  I love playing there!  Steve Szabo caught some wonderful photos of both Brian Henke and myself!  What an artist he is!

I've included a few of those photos in the video I just uploaded for another track from the new CD.  It will be the very first track and sets the tone for the whole album - "Fairy Tale"!   

Here is a link to it on YouTube:" target="_blank">http://

Still working on the graphics and I think I may be able to send off the files for production this week!  It is so hard having to wait till it is in my hands!  Once here, though, all the pre-orders will be sent out with lots of thanks!

See you soon, I hope.... Festival time approaches!!!   Check the schedule!!!

"The Elf King's Horn" is Finished!

This is awesome stuff, my friends...

"The Elf King's Horn" is done and mastered.  All that remains, at this writing, is finishing the graphics and giving the go-ahead.  That means, it should be delivered before I hit the road for PSG!!!   The first video is posted here on my site - as well as on Facebook...  

You are all going to love this album!  Brian Henke and Jay Bentoff did an exquisite job of bringing out the beauty in the music I wrote.  I can't begin to count the goosebumps...    I've already performed some of these at the Beltaine Festival at Our Haven, and I cannot wait to share it with more of you.  Honestly, several of these songs stayed rather hidden for many years until this project called them out into the light!

At any rate, you will be able to get the CD soon and I will be posting more videos as soon as I can get them done.!

We are getting closer to the new CD being done!  Steph Dlugon came out to Dark Tree Studios and laid down some incredible violin parts!  Now, we are on the hunt for a French Horn and maybe a cello, then Brian will make some guitar magic in a few places!

I've come up with some initial graphics

and - here is the BIG news...

Hang on to your hats!  I am starting up and Indiegogo campaign to fund the rest of the project!

Stay tuned for specific information and invites in the next week or so.  It would be wonderful to have YOU participate!

Progress Report on the New CD

I am very excited about the new CD that is being produced by Brian Henke!  It is Fairy themed and all original music.  We've been recording at Dart Tree Studios with Jay Bentoff at the helm and the sound is just amazing!  I have some very neat instrumentals on it and there will be several guest artists featured.  I am considering a crowd funder to cover a good first order of CDs so stay tuned for more information as it happens!
