Harvest Stomp 2011

That's right, the band will kick-off our new season in just a couple of days at the Armory in downtown Northfield, MN. We expect another big turnout for the always high-energy Harvest Stomp. The four of us haven't played together since last May so there will be a lot of good energy coming from Contratopia. We'll be joined by caller Robin Nelson so you can count on some fun dances too.

If you can't make it to Northfield on Friday, make a point of coming to Tapestry in Minneapolis on Sat. November 12 instead. It looks like our buddy Beau Farmer will be calling with us that night which always means lots of fun.

On a related note (pun intended) I recently released my first ever solo CD titled, imaginatively, Mandolin Tunes. As the title suggests it's a collection of twenty-three mandolin and guitar recordings taken from the nearly 100 tunes I've recorded for my So Many Tunes blog since 2007. They were all recorded at home through the miracle of multi-track recording with me playing all the parts. I'll have a few copies with me on Friday in Northfield and you can also order a copy from CD Baby. It should also be available at iTunes, Rhapsody, and other fine digital vendors soon.

Hope to see lots of you folks on Friday.
