August has been a thrilling month for me. Just two days into the month I became a grandfather for the first time. I was there in Charlottesville when sweet Elizabeth Leslie Wolf was born at Martha Jefferson Hospital. She is beautiful and doing well even though she’s become somewhat of a night owl!
August is also when we wrapped up the new CD. “Across the Water” is a 12 song compilation of mostly original tunes inspired by my travels to Ireland and my rich Irish heritage. A world-class group of musicians play on this album and I believe it is definitely my best piece of work to date. “Across the Water” will be formally released on Sunday, October 4 in Raleigh at Quail Ridge Books and Music on Wade Avenue at 4:00PM. I have released all of my CDs there because of my love for the independent bookseller. My parents ran a book store in Morganton, NC. That’s where I learned retail trade, picture framing and the art of sweeping floors as a youngster!
Please join me in Raleigh for a mini concert and CD signing at Quail Ridge on October 4, again at 4:00PM.. Irish refreshments will be served as well as some spectacular music videos from the Emerald Isle. The location for the CD release party is 3522 Wade Avenue in Raleigh, NC.
