Recording Session with Naming the Twins

Yesterday I traveled down to the south shore to add harp to four tracks of Naming the Twins' upcoming album. The session was with Harbourtone Productions, at their beautiful studio in Shelburne. I had so much fun in the studio. Really looking forward to hearing the whole album!

Tuesday Night Tunes

Erin and I really enjoyed playing at Tuesday Night Tunes yesterday evening! Tuesday Night Tunes is a free outdoor concert series that takes place throughout the summer, hosted by the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Ragged Robin's first performance was for Tuesday Night Tunes last summer, and it was exciting to see how much we've changed since then.

Final student recital

This year, the final recital was a house concert generously hosted by my parents. There were lots of great solo performances from the students and an awesome guest appearance by the Conservatory trad ensemble. It was a very fun year working with them all, and I'm looking forward to moving everyone over to the Conservatory in September!
