How the Autoharp Changed My Life

How the Autoharp Changed My Life

It was the end of 1997. The guitarist for my Alt-Rock band Breastfed decided to quit. Our drummer didn’t want to start another search for a lead guitarist. The band was over. I was surprisingly okay with that. I decided to be a musician because I wanted to be a songwriter. But I recognized that my […]

The 2017 Celtic Invasion of Brittany begins. I reserve the first day of all my trips to recoup from jet lag. I flew in on Friday…to Paris. I never been. So I was excited. Almost as excited as the price on my airplane ticket ($950).  The flight over was easy. I napped on the first […]

I am in the process of decluttering my office and my house. My wife has suggested since we got married, but the recent worry about moving was the final catalyst.

Renaissance Festival Podcast Is SOLD!

It was 2007. I was on the Brobdingnagian Bards Tour of Ireland. Our bus stopped in Blarney, Ireland so our travelers could shop. Andrew McKee and I weren’t much of shoppers. Instead, we found an open piece of grass and started playing music. First our fans gathered to listen. Then people from other tour buses sat […]
