It was such a beautiful tour with my two travelling companions, Jamie Loughead on bass, and Kurt Weiland, band yogi. Can't wait til next time!!  Also, thanks to Dewey Dunnington who joined us on banjo in Calgary!

This is with Jamie Loughead, who has accompanied me on this fall's tour of Eastern Canada. We sing harmonies, he plays bass, and what an amazing touring partner!!!

Playing with Ken Shorley is one of my favorite things, he is an incredible percussionist and all round musician, and a great inspiration to me.

Here we are in another genre... Ken plays and studies music from many different traditions, and we share a love for Indian music.

Here we are joined by the lovely and multi-talented Heidi Kalyani on tambura, you will recognize her name from the CD liner notes as she designed it!

This is a sarangi, it is an Indian and Afghan instrument very near to my heart.

Two people who have made this CD and my return to the folk scene possible are my sister and brother in law Ariana Nasr and Andy Flinn. It is amazing to play with them, as it was to record Lonesome Sky and tour with them last spring.

Ahh... What a Band!

Here we are joined by Ji Myeng Kang, visual artist and interpretive dancer!

Here's the whole gang including the deep and powerful voice of Alan Slipp!
