On the road with The Tillers

The Tillers in Mancelona Michigan

 This past weekend, I had the pleasure of traveling up to Michigan, the mitten state for a run of shows with The Tillers. I was wearing the documentarian hat filming for a future little feature on the band and what it's like to travel and be on the road.

 Our first stop was Mancelona Michigan to an awesome little country, one room school house literally in the middle of nowhere. Great folks came out and supported a very intimate show. Afterwards we lit a bonfire and jammed well into the night.

Then back south to Marshall for a packed house at the Dark Horse Brewery.

 Next up was South Haven Michigan for an early show at the Foundry Hall. Before the show I headed out to into the downtown area for some busking. I HIGHLY recommend the South Haven
busking scene.

 Then a late night trip to Daytrotter in Rock Island Illinois.

It was such a good time and I can't wait to get back out on the road with The Tillers in the future. Great friends and great times.

 During the trip I was also able to perform a bit as well playing in between sets and opening once.

Whispering Beard 2014

 I am very excited to announce that I will be playing at the Whispering Beard Folk Festival this year! Cannot wait. Such a great line up this year! Check it out here.


May 9th and 10th I had the pleasure of joining two great bands in Cincinnati for very memorable shows. First up was Arnolds' Bar and Grill, with Buffalo Wabs and the Price Hill Hustle. Then over to the Crows Nest with The Tillers. Such a great time. Cincinnati is one of the coolest places to place music. Great crowds and a great love for music.
