After years of searching for just the right guitar, I found the perfect fit with Preston Thompson custom made guitars. They are of incredible quality, craftsmanship and awesome sound.
Thank you to Preston Thompson, Christine Funk, and the whole Thompson team!

Friday (3/15) evening I had the wonderful opportunity to play background roots and gospel music for a church youth missions fundraiser dinner. On Saturday I was able to shadow a music therapist, working with a bell choir, and with Alzheimer's and Dementia patients. It was such a joy to be able to use music to heal and to see the effects that music can have on those who need it most! It was a great start to a promising spring and I hope to have more of these opportunities in 2019!

It was a delightful evening of fine music at the Celebration of North Carolina Songwriters event with wonderful original songs by Alice Gerrard (Tatiana Hargreaves played fiddle with Alice), Tommy Edwards, Jessica Lang, and Kirk Ridge (FLTR) at The Blue Note Grill. The four singer-songwriters played to a full and appreciative audience.

Although I absolutely love my bluegrass, singer-songwriter, and folk music, jazz music also holds a special place in my heart! I have absolutely loved playing in my school jazz band for three years, and I'm so excited to have had my first performance of this school year with the varsity jazz band! Playing great jazz music with great people makes my heart so happy!
I had such a great time at the IBMA Songwriter Track with Rick Lang, Jerry Salley, and Sherrill Blackman!
So excited to share this audio file with you from our new CD. I had the privilege of co-writing Tell Me a Story with one of my good friends, the prolific songwriter, Rick Lang last year. You may have seen previous videos or live performances of this song with The Carolina PineCones, but I am so proud of how this song came out on our first CD! A big thank you to the band for the beautiful instrumentation, to Jef Walter for the countless hours he spent on getting the mix just right for this song, to Jason Beverly for the wonderful photos on the album, and to Landon Elmore for the beautiful design!
