Summer is over and Fall is here heading towards winter. The garden was wonderful this year and we continue to make progress on the cabin, but frost is in the air which means it is time to head south and west for the winter. First stop, teaching at John C. Campbell Folkschool in Brasstown, NC. This will be our 9th year there and we will be teaching a Clawhammer Banjo from Scratch class. Want to get started on Clawhammer banjo? This is the way. You don't even need an instrument as I will have some for you to use.
We will be ending up in Tucson, on the east side, early in November and I will be taking students for Fiddle, clawhammer banjo and old time guitar.
And yes, I did get the Old Time Festival Tunes for Fiddle and Mandolin done and it is at the publisher! Mel Bay tells me we should expect a February 09 release, so stay tuned!

I'm envious. I start getting cold (and cranky) when the temps drop below 70.
Perhaps one day I'll be in a position that I can come sit in on one of you classes.

Garden? Out here in Cali we have the best gardens, can grow anything. In fact, my winter garden's already giving me carrots, lettuce, onions, etc. Anyways, I'll keep an eye out for your book, Dan. Thanks,
