Eugene, Oregon

Wow, what a lovely show in Eugene Oregon last sunday night. The space was held nicely for a house concert, in a lovely backyard dance studio. I played a nice first set, sharing my love for appalachian sing alongs, and as i finished the set with original songs, the room began to move and dance improv. It was beautifully radical to be part of a room full of people, fully willing to express themselves and allow the music to move through them freely, boundlessly. Aimee Ringle then played an engaging set of originals and audience participation numbers, and the room continued dancing. WHo says that folk music has to be a sit down concert? This evening was particularly inspiring to me in that, a dancing crowd informs my performance in a particularly somatic and wholistic way. I’d love to have dancers in my traveling folk band.
