The Big European Excursion

Hello from Brooklyn! There was snow everywhere just a few days ago, but now it's all melted. It's still cold, but dry and beautiful in NY.

I'll be heading over to Europe for a month or so to do gigs and hang out, meet friends, etc. Hopefully, for those of you located across the pond there will be a chance for us to meet up. It'd be great to see you after all this time!

I have free dates and it's not so much about the money (though money is welcome) as it is just to play and be working and keeping busy. So if you hear of anything - gigs or workshops - or have something I can join in on, I'd be very grateful.

Here's my gig schedule as things stand right now. Hope to be updating with some more dates between now and April:

3-4.4 free
5.4. Frankfurt - Freitagsk├╝che
