Banff Residency


I'm in the middle of an incredible two-week stay at the Banff Centre. Nestled in the Canadian Rockies, the environment is so inspiring for devoting time to music; each day is filled with practicing, composing, and developing music for my trio with Emily Asher and Tom Abbott, Endangered Species

Tin Hat's Final Shows

When I joined Tin Hat in 2010, the band had already been together for over a decade and released six albums. It was a legacy that I was honored to be a part of. Alas, the time has come to put an end to this chapter of the band. As Carla Kihlstedt says: 

"Even with all of our new space-time-continuum-defying technologies, the great geographic divide has been hard for us to overcome. We still have a list of special projects and recordings that we want to do, so we’re saving our collective energies for those, and we’re setting aside the old band-makes-record-and-tours model. Actually, we set it aside a little while ago. Now we’re just making it official."

So, come out and celebrate our last shows with us!
