Catching up...

Wow! This summer is flying by. Here are a few of the things I've been up to...
This past weekend I had the pleasure of playing at The Salida Riverside Art Festival. Above I'm accompanying singer/songwriter Chris Nasca on Sunday afternoon. Earlier in the morning I played a solo set on my Chapman Stick. On Saturday afternoon I played bass with "Your Surrogate Cousin" (pic below). It was a great weekend, the festival was a great time.

The week before Sherrie and I headed up to Denver where I got to visit with my darling niece Lily visiting from Cleveland.

This coming weekend I'll be providing some dinner music for a benefit for Salida Backyard CSA. A great organization run by my surrogate cousin, Eric Belsey.

Weekend update....

Once again another great weekend here in Salida, Colorado. Friday evening Sherrie and I hosted a informal get together at our place. We have such great friends! It was a fun evening, then early Saturday (me, still very blurry from too much wine the night before) we setup at the Salida farmers market. It turned out to be a beautiful sunny morning. Sherrie sold some of her gorgeous art and I played my Chapman Stick and sold some CDs.

Speaking of the CD, "Residue" is now the featured CD at Stick Enterprises. World renowned Stickist Greg Howard posted a great review. Needless to say, I'm pretty excited!

Sunday morning Sherrie and I went to the County Fair. Mutton Busting (small children riding sheep) was quite entertaining! We also saw an impressive display of antique steam powered tractors, since both of us are closet steampunks we found it fascinating.
Back at home, our street was closed down for the day for the Salida Omnium bike race. All day long cyclists went whizzing by the house, watching them fly by was making me dizzy!
