“Hymn for Crow” solo and live
In 1994 a musician friend named David "Crow" Levine who lived and worked near my place in Montpelier sickened one day and died a few weeks later, leaving behind his wife Diana and his daughter. He was a young man, and I thought about him...
“Never Go Back” solo and live
I recorded my arrangement of Vermont singer-songwriter Rachel Bissex's song "Never Go Back" for my first unaccompanied solo record, "The Act of Being Free in One Act", in 1995. This video was recorded in my home studio on August 22 2023, i.e. two days ago....
Kill The Doctor (Who Killed My Wife)
I wrote this piece with a particular person in mind. You're pretty close to me if you know who. Anyway, unlike most of my recent posts, this piece was written, arranged, and performed entirely by me. Vocal and harmonica are performed live. I'm playing a...

A Harp-Heavy Take on “Highway 61 Revisited”
This live video performance of Bob Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited" was recorded July 20, 2023. I updated an arrangement I recorded in the 1980s with new everything for this version. The take is close to 5 minutes long, and it's worth the listen. Harp tech...
Another Live Take on “Blue Future”
I recorded this take on my piece “Blue Future,” complete with vocals, last night. A studio version of “Blue Future” can be found on my EP of the same name (see below).
The Caline Old School Reverb: Good for the (low) price
I was gifted a Caline Old School Reverb pedal for Chistmas. It's a decent reverb for the low price, and it's a useful piece for demonstrating what a reverb pedal does and what features to look for. Check out the video. You're gonna like this...
“Cruisin’ (Sunset Sam)” LIVE
My arrangement of Michael Nesmith's classic "Cruisin'". Live vocals and harmonica. Tech stuff: Seydel Lightning C harp in 2nd position (G); Bulletini mic; Line 6 HX stomp running a Fender Princeton amp model with a low octave and bubble vibrato. Pretty big sound. Dig. If...
“It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry” Live
My performance of Bob Dylan's song. As Jimi Hendrix said while playing "Like a Rolling Stone" at Monterey, "Yeah, I messed up the lyrics. So what?" Lead harp recorded with a Suzuki Manji harmonica in G, played in 2nd position through a Bulletini mic into...
“Why Should I Make History” LIVE
The rhythm section for this version of my song "Why Should I Make History" was recorded with a Philadelphia-based rhythm section in 2017. The version heard here is designed for on stage performance. Here I'm singing lead and playing a Hohner Crossover harmonica in C...
