This Tweedy is totally inspiring even when it’s not plugged in! I love the feel! The guitar was a great help when working on a song for the upcoming Rupert Neve archive CD. Many thanks to Gibson for their continuing support of my music!

It was really wonderful to be a part of Stradella’s stunning oratorio “San Giovanni Battista”, presented by ARTEK. The masterpiece was conducted by Gwendolyn Toth and joined by Italian violinist Enrico Gatti. Gwen Toth is always a delight to work for, and Enrico Gatti was excellent. Thank you all for coming!

Last week, I performed the title role in a new opera called “Tesla in New York”, written by Jim Jarmusch and Phil Kline. It is a really fascinating story of the mysterious turn-of-the-century genius who helped invent radio. The in-progress concert version was presented at the Hopkins Center for the Arts in Hanover, NH.

I was so honored to sing the national anthem this past Friday at Federal Hall in NYC — what a beautiful acoustic! The hall is a national park site, where George Washington was inducted as the first president, just opposite the New York Stock Exchange. It’s a great place for sightseeing — you should check it out sometime.
