As I posted earlier just over a week ago, I'm sad to report the sudden and unexpected death of my father earlier this month. This has been a time of great transition for my family, and a time of reflection on life for me personally. The river of life has its ebbs and flows, constantly changing, ever continuing, with the experience of its passengers along for the ride just a tiny yet remarkable glimpse of the great expanse that makes up the whole. I hope to fill our music with the richness of that experience of life. I will share with you a sense of the beauty of Hawaii, the sadness of loss, the comfort of remembrance, and the joy of life. It will be my great honor to play for you very soon, 20-21 September 2014, at the Rochester Fringe Festival.
