Spring Break

I just finished a great Crooked Still tour. 9 gigs. 9 days. 2500 miles pulling a trailer. No nervous breakdowns parking in NYC. It was an amazing tour. We started in Princeton, NJ where we played for Brittany Haas's senior recital. It was so much fun and her duets with Dan Trueman were magical. We also had great shows in Toronto, Ann Arbor, Brooklyn, D.C. and a sold out hometown show at the Somerville Theatre in Somerville, MA. Check it out:

I'm now in Vail, CO skiing with my siblings, who live out here. Traveling out here without a bass made me realize that people who complain about flying are full of shit. Unless they are traveling with a baby.

There was 14 inches of snow last night and today was a pretty amazing powder day. Check out my brother Paul's wind blown look after having his hat torn off in a glade. Looking good, Paul.

I'm off for a couple of weeks until Crooked Still plays a show in Rosendale, NY with our friends Mike and Ruthy on April 3rd and then on April 4th in Putney, VT with Sam Amidon. Should be a nice break.

Speaking of Sam Amidon, he has an amazing SXSW recap that was published in Time Out New York.

That's all for now.

I've gotten so caught up in my real life that I have completely lost sight of cyber life. It's time to set things straight.

What's new you ask? Well, I can ski and so can my friends in the Infamous Stringdusters. Here is some footage of us skiing in Big Sky, MT. I'm in the green jacket about 50 seconds in and am the first in the video to hurl myself off of a cliff!

I can also Twitter. Or is it Tweet? I'm still new at this.
