I'll be posting new videos here periodically.


Here are videos of four songs Beth and I performed at the West Rutland Town Hall on January 30, 2016. It was a split bill show with our friends Phil Henry and Gary Moon. Special thanks to Phil for putting the show together and making these videos. If you don’t know Phil Henry’s music you should check him out at
The songs are “The Cuckoo” (a traditional standard) and three songs I wrote, “Two Crows” (with Beth on lead vocals), “Bus Stop” and “The Call Home Waltz”.

This is a video recorded on December 30, 2015 at my house while Beth and I were rehearsing for our New Year's Eve show at the Walkover Gallery in Bristol, Vermont.
