Wow, June is here already, and the world is becoming crazier than ever. I hope that somehow some meaningful change can come out of all this. Please stay safe out there! Here in Boston, we've been busy getting some stuff accomplished around the home/studio, and we've been thankful to be staying connected to you twice a week for our Wi-Five Live concerts.
My last month was all about guitar workshops. I want to thank everyone who attended my Intro To Country Blues Guitar online workshop! It was such a success that I plan on doing another one (I'll announce it next month!). I also put together two guitar workshops for Augusta Blues Week. All you budding musicians and blues lovers should consider signing up for this great program, which usually takes place in the mountains of West Virginia, but this year has moved online. Check it out/sign up here!
This month Jim and I have a new project, and we're really excited to get it started and share it with you! We are recording our first acoustic CBD album! We've been wanting to record our Country Blues Duo for a while, and coincidentally we find ourselves stuck at home together, with no touring, so it makes perfect sense. Stay tuned for more announcements about the upcoming pre-sale and release date!
Looking to the summer: we've been working through contacting venues for shows we had booked, checking to see if any of the outdoor shows might still be on. We're finding (unsurprisingly) that most are cancelled, but stay tuned to see if one or two outdoor shows could still be on. Gotta have hopes! In the meantime, we're keeping up our online show schedule (!) – Wednesdays and Sundays – the details are below, as well as some other timely news tidbits!
Oh, and we have a BIG MERCH SALE going on all week - 30% OFF EVERYTHING at our merch stores! Links below!
