This summer has me on the road again. I’ll be passing through North Carolina, then teaching Cajun fiddle at the Augusta Heritage Center, in Elkins, WV; then playing Camp Zydecow, with Bruce Daigrepont, in Cherryfield, ME; then playing with the house band at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival; then playing another great gig with Bruce Daigrepont at Buffalo on the Bayou, in Capon Bridge, WV; then capping off the summer at the Fox Valley Folk and Storytelling Festival, in Geneva, IL on Labor Day Weekend. With any luck, all of these dates will appear on the listing of Shows. If you’re at any of these places, here’s hoping I see you…or somewhere along the way.
Today, I listed more dates for 2023, including the Acoustic Renaissance Concerts March 4, 2023 with Heather Styka, Jazzfest with Bruce, and The French Quarter Festival with the Mid-City Aces. They’re all listed in the Shows link
Today, I’m sitting in my living room, trying to add new dates to my calendar. There’s an exciting show at the Barns of Rose Hill https://barnsofrosehill.org/event/kipyn-martin-2022/in Berryville, VA, March 12, 2022, with Kipyn Martin, that I’m really looking forward to. And there are shows with the Mid-City Aces at the Abita Springs Opry April 16, and a new series at St. Anna’s Episcopal Church April 28. And then, there’s Jazzfest (April 30 with the Mid-City Aces, at the Fais Do Do Stage; and my very own solo (trio, really) show at the Rhythmporium; as well as May 7 with Bruce Daigrepont). The other news is that this website has been more or less dormant since the pandemic; I’ll be working to get it back up and running so that you can see the shows listed where the shows ought to be. In the meantime, I’ll go ahead and post them here.
Here’s hoping you’re staying healthy, and staying at home, if you can. Of late, I’ve been doing online shows, Facebook watch parties, and video snippets. This coming Saturday, April 11, I’m doing another one of those virtual shows on my FB band page.
One more thing: of late, I’ve been updating some of the links here, including where one can find Gina Forsyth/Malvinas/Mid-City Aces recordings. Along with the links to Soona Songs, Louisiana Music Factory, and, yes, Amazon.com, one can get recordings directly through me at through my PayPal and Venmo pages.
One last thing: of late, I’ve been teaching Cajun fiddle lessons on Skype and Zoom. If you’re interested in taking a lesson, contact me at Facebook messenger or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much to everyone who has donated. Bien merci, tout le monde!
