Help me get to SXSW!

Hiya, friends! I’m hoping to leave in less than a week for my tour out to SXSW.  It will be my very first time there, and I’m thrilled to be a part of one official showcase and one unofficial showcase.  I’m going to be playing banjo with my friend Orion Walsh, and my violinist Marta will be playing with me at my show!  I’m planning to caravan out there with my friend Kat Jones, who I know from Tomfest.  We are going to be playing shows in Phoenix, Albuquerque, Lubbock, Oklahoma City, Dallas, and a few others. Unfortunately, gas prices have skyrocketed and reached the moon.  I won’t be able to go unless I reach my kickstarter goal in the next 5 days.  If you have even one dollar that you can donate to my gas fund, I would be so grateful!  Every little bit counts, and I don’t get any of it if I don’t finish the project. I’ve come up with some fun incentives for supporting my project, including a house concert, handmade beanies, silver trees and origami thank you notes.  I hope you’ll take a moment to check out my project and consider helping a starvingartist make it to the best festival in Austin!

Old & New Songs Up on Bandcamp

So, it’s been a while since I have blogged, but if you read my last post, you probably aren’t surprised.  My hair has grown nicely into a fauxhawk, but more about that later.
