Are you ready to JAM? Prescott Folk Fest is Coming UP!

Are you ready to JAM?

Annually, Sharlot Hall Museum hosts its Folk Music Festival to the delight of fans from throughout Arizona and the neighboring states for two days of music and merriment.

I’ll be playing there on Sunday, October 2, with my buddy, Rick Boyle. We’re called Begged and Borrowed. Also, if you’re there on Saturday the 1st, check out my workshop: I’ve always wanted to Play the Harp. I’ll have 10 or more baby harps available for you to use to take your first lesson – loads of fun are in store!

More than 200 musicians… 90 performances… four different venues… all on the four-acre campus in downtown Prescott, Arizona, as we celebrate 38 years of folk music at this recognized and heralded festival set for Saturday and Sunday, October 1 & 2.

Playing this Thursday at the Heard

I will be playing  for Artlink’s  18thannual Artlink Juried Exhibition, 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, in the Steele Auditorium at the Heard Museum in midtown Phoenix. Fifty artworks by 45 exceptional Arizona artists will be presented in this special one-night-only event.


A panel of three jurors from the Arizona arts community chose the 50 exhibition pieces from 256 submissions, the most entries in the history of the competition. The jurors were these prominent members of the Phoenix arts community: Nancy Hill, owner of Chartreuse gallery, artistFred Tieken, and Ann Marshall, Ph.D., the Heard Museum’s director of curation and education.

Three winners of the 2016 Exhibition will receive cash awards. Winners will be announced at the exhibition.

For the first time, the top award will be an acquisition prize, funded by Baron Properties.

Happy Easter!

Fortunately, this has never happened to me!

Happy Easter, everyone!
