  • Here's an instrumental version of an old-time song with guitar and twin fiddle. This recording is an experiment in multi-tracking and the rhythm doesn't mesh at some points, but bear with me while I learn!

  • John, Josh, and I met in the summer of 2012, shortly after I left graduate school. I was busking in various places around San Francisco and had just about given up to go back home to the East Bay when two musicians interrupted me to let me know that they would be setting up to play shortly, but I could keep playing while they unloaded. I kept playing fiddle tunes until they were ready, and they then asked me to play with them and we haven't stopped. This video was recorded a few short months after we started playing together in the Fall of 2012.

Years later, we found ourselves in the same city and started improvising at a church where Kyle is the musical director. This recording is one of our early efforts, recorded August 30, 2016.
