Autumn is one of my favorite times. There's a certain anticipation – of crisp evenings and frosty mornings, lovely leaf colors, perhaps even of snow as the season extends into December. This year's autumn also brings more chance for in-person gatherings than we have been able to manage for the past 20 months, even if we still need to be cautious. Music events are beginning to show up on the gig calendar again, ever so slowly...
I am very grateful for your support -- thank you for the tip jar donations, for downloading tracks and albums, and for your email notes. I have added more recordings on the Music Samples page and in the Store, and have some videos on the Links and Videos page. I will be adding more resource links soon. If you enjoy the recordings, and would like to see more, let me know! I'm happy to add to the collection.
Stay healthy and safe!
