"BOWLING GREEN"

An old Appalachian song I got from the playing of Cousin Emmy, recorded in Dead Horse Bay in Brooklyn, New York.

"ZISL'S SHER AND KARAHOD" by LITVAKUS

An original composition by Zisl Slepovitch (clarinet) followed by a traditional Belarusian Jewish circle dance tune.

Filmed live at DROM, a music venue in Manhattan's East Village.

"BEFORE DAWN" by BROOKLYN BLUE GRASS COLLECTIVE

This is an original bluegrass tune written by my former bandmate, Thomas Bryan Eaton (Miss Tess and the Talkbacks) recorded in Brooklyn for the Brooklyn Bluegrass Collective's Volume 2. BBC is a collective of musicians working to record, promote, and create bluegrass music in the New York Area.

with my fiddle

A kind student of mine took this violin to the shop and asked what they thought. 'Only a fiddler would want this' they told him, convincing him that another instrument better suited his classical tendencies. In his infinite compassion, Michael then gave me this violin as a way of saying thank you for my guidance as a teacher. Every time I try it in the studio on a 'folk' record, it always sounds better and more soulful than my other more 'high end' violin. Sometimes life does work out!
