    Hey how are you? I’ve been taking a break from my folk stuff and concentrating on classical piano lately. So I thought I’d throw out an oldie for you:

  • Tucson Folk Festival Recap

    My assessment of the Folk Festival performance:

    1.  I survived. After not performing for a year.
    2. The dry heat made my throat and mouth cotton mouthed, my guitar was going flat by the minute and I discovered I could not see the tuning light on it in the daylight or the shade.
    3. The guitar to me was very hard to hear. I could hear nothing from the monitors. This was the most disconcerting thing. So I over-played – forced my playing.

    I could say a lot more, but some things went very well and without much practice, and with no prior playing experience the ensembles went off very well. Live and learn and do better next time! Thanks so much to Michael Santander and Rose Todaro for risking their lives with me and adding so much to this effort!

    Michael Emmanuel, Michael Santander, and Rose Todaro

    Although a hot and dry day, we had a great time at the Tucson Folk Festival on Saturday. Michael Santander, a local cellist and Rose Todaro, a local violinist, joined me for the set.The turnout was great and luckily the area we were playing was shady and had enough of a breeze to keep us cool. We did a set of seven songs from the Blake work (Available at Amazon.com). Michael joined me for two and Rose for two and we did a trio on The Little Vagabond (with some audience sing-along help).

    Here’s the recording of The Little Vagabond from the festival. Hopefully, we’ll have some video in the next week or two of the performance.

  • Innocence and Experience

    The experience of putting Blake’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience to music has taken many years of on again off again work, while in the meantime continuing classical piano and voice studies ( on my own) and teaching youngsters mostly piano and working several odd jobs. You can hear all of these on my you tube channel. If you like something that is not in the store on this site and want to buy it and contribute to furthering this project let me know in the comments and I’ll  add it to the store. Here is the last of the videos of the Blake songs
