The Holiday Season is upon us! I still have some availability for December 2022, and I'm really looking forward to playing Christmas parties and family gatherings. My holiday repertoire includes dozens of traditional Christmas carols as well as excerpts from The Nutcracker Suite.
Send me an email if you're looking for live music for your party!

"I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
--Sir Isaac Newton PRS, FRS
It occurred to me recently that I have not shared a blog post in two years. Therefore I have decided that I will invest more effort in my blog, and I plan to post on a (mostly) weekly basis. I'll still write about music, but I would like to introduce a few new topics and will be categorizing my posts accordingly. Namely, I have lately been practicing state-of-the-art astronomy-- circa the mid 16th century. I have constructed several astronomical instruments, some of which may appear in cameo as I make a return to regular blogging. This might seem a little out of place in a musician's blog, yet without invoking Boëthius we would do well to remember that Galileo Galilei came from a family of lutenists (and would no doubt have been a fine player himself), or that Johannes Kepler published musical models of the solar system based on the data which he and his teacher Tycho Brahe had collected.
