Very excited that Eric Vloeimans and I will be playing a showcase at the Chamber Music America conference in New York (January 7th, 12 noon). If you're attending this conference, we would love to meet you.
Two for the Road, recorded live on our tour of the Netherlands last year, will be released on Sept. 1st. Our second album as a duo, it features Eric's beautiful "Innermission" series he composed during lockdown, as well as my long-form piece "Redbud Winter," commissioned by the American Accordionists' Association. It was a small miracle that we were able to tour at all in 2021, and it was a pleasure to be able to stretch out and play for enthusiastic Dutch audiences. This fall, we'll be playing in the US and Canada ... see Calendar for dates. The album will be available via Bandcamp and streaming platforms.
Congrats to Michael on a wonderful new album: Early Bird Special! Michael is a fantastic clarinetist who finds ways to be innovative, solidly in the klezmer tradition, and a lot of fun ... all at once. So happy to be playing with him as an Honorable Mentsh.
