The Hurdy Gurdy man!

Donovan was there! Here are the only photos I have so far, but there were several photographers there who said they would send us more. As you can tell everyone was looking at different cameras. I spent some time with his lovely wife Linda who I really enjoyed hanging out with. Jon and Donovan had an instant mutual admiration that might lead to some cool musical collaberation down the road. I won't say anymore than that right now, but I will leave you with these fun photos!
(Thanks to Jon Bahr for the photos!)

The New York trip was amazing!

We had such a great time, the hotel was perfect and the weather could not have been better. Got to catch up with some old friends and got to make some new friends. The only downer was on the third day when my camera decided to stop working. The memory card was corrupt or something. Anyhow, we fixed it by getting a new card, but I'm sad that I lost all of the photos from the first few days because they were some of the best days!

I will make a proper post about the many exciting things that happened later this week.

I made a few vids of Jon's Union Hall show, so I will post those here.
