Happy New Year y’all! All’s well in our camp. Spent a good bit of time these past few weeks working on the Malian documentary film associated with Dugu Wolo, my Mande record released this past year. I’ll be plugging away for some time yet and will keep you posted on any film news.
Got a few shows in GA this month, including a performance of the Malian material and opening for one of my favorite songwriters (check him out), Jonathan Byrd.
THURS JAN 17th– Green Room– Athens, GA (7pm)
Free Happy hour show w/ band, playing Dugu Wolo under Malian name Lassine Kouyate
FRI JAN 25th– Hendershot’s Coffee– Athens, GA (8pm)
w/ Jason Kenney on mandolin/banjo, opening for Jonathan Byrd
In other news, recorded a few songs recently at Atlanta’s 800 East studio with the talented Ben Holst engineering and the wonderful Megan McCormick (The Everybodyfields) on acoustic and electric guitars. Look for them as bonus tracks in connection with the upcoming release of Sky Blue DeVille.
Thanks for stopping by,
