About this project

I've been invited to play my bluegrass songs to the people of Sochi  Russia during the 2014 Winter Olympics. We'll start in Moscow with a concert then spend 4 days playing in Sochi, the site of the winter games. I'm trying to raise the funds to get my band there, feed and house them.

Risks and challenges

Setting up a band tour is daunting! Especially one that is overseas. I'm fortunate to have a veteran travel professional handling the travel and housing. Another challenge in touring is knowing the places you're traveling. I'm also fortunate to be associated with folks who work in Sochi. They are already there setting up our gigs and performances. Now our job is to practice, wear warm clothes and get there.
