After working a year in California, I can attest to the fact that audiences at wine tasting rooms are some of the best! Not sure if that has anything to do with the beverage on hand, or they just appreciate great music, haha! Needless to say, I am looking forward to playing some tunes for the folks at Evergreen!

Vineyard at Evergreen Farm has been a licensed winery since April 2015. However, our experience in wine-making goes back to the time when founder, Chris Dues, was 16, where his journey began by fermenting elderberry's in his parent's basement for a tart tasting concoction to revel with his friends. This journey has continued to making wine with his daughter, co-founder Gina Dues, who has a taste for the artistic and design, spearheading the launch of our tasting room outfitted inside an antique chicken barn.

The Waking Hours

WMNF, Tampa, FL

Many thanks to Craig Huegel, host of "The Waking Hours" for playing my song "Don't Believe".

The Waking Hours draws heavily on modern singer/songwriters, from folk to R&B, rock, and blues, with a special emphasis on artists that might be new to the station’s listeners, music by real musicians, and music with something to say. I like to draw from the music of the 30’s/40’s all the way up to music released the week of the show. Each week, I feature a new CD during the second and third hour that has not yet been widely played and showcase two songs at each of the half hours. I hope to introduce my listeners to musicians who will someday become their new favorite artists.

MUSIC YOU CAN'T HEAR ON THE RADIO, WPRB 103.3 FM, Princeton, New Jersey

Many thanks to John Weingart, host of MUSIC YOU CAN'T HEAR ON THE RADIO! Honoured to be on the same show as Iris deMent, The Band, Tony Rice, and Jackson Browne (insert head spin here!).

WPRB describes itself as "New Jersey's Only Radio Station" and John tells his story thusly, "I did my first show on WPRB from 6:00-9:00 AM on a Monday morning in February 1974. After turning on the station, I opened with Pete Seeger singing, "Oh, Had I A Golden Thread." My other memory of that show was that a woman called to say, "Young man, do you realize you are not in Nashville but rather in Princeton, New Jersey. I hope you will soon switch to music more consenent with this area." About 15 months later, I left New Jersey and, I thought, radio, but returned to both and started a 3-hour Sunday night show in February 1976 shortly after Paul Robeson died. I am so grateful that the radio gods at WPRB have let me stay and I have spent the vast majority of Sunday nights since trying to create radio that takes wonderful, interesting, sometimes funny, often political, more often reasonably obscure songs and tunes, and weaves them together to be more than the sum of their parts".

FOLKWAYS

Aho to Mark Pedersen, host of FOLKWAYS for playing my music! I am thrilled and honoured to be included alongside April Verch, Le Vent du Nord, Kate Wolf, and Alison Krauss, to name a few. Mark plays a great mix of folk music on WOJB, a National Public Radio member on 88.9 MHz, and serves northwestern Wisconsin from the Lac Courte Oreilles Reservation southeast of Hayward, Wisconsin.

Simpatico

WSPN Radio 91.1 FM, Saratoga Springs, NY

Many thanks to Chris, host of Simpatico at WSPN Radio, Skidmore College, Saratoga, NY. Simpatico is a "whole lotta folk music, a little bit of bluegrass and a hint of the blues." Thanks for playing my rendition of the classic blues, "St. James Infirmary". Honoured to be in a playlist featuring Eric Bibb, Dolly Parton, Aoife O'Donovan, Karen Morand and the Bosco Boys, and Janis Ian.
