hi Folks.......

I am trying to raise money to make copies of a new Cd.....the pieces are already recorded and mixed, they just need to be duplicated on disc.....and cover art needs to be done etc.

This project contains 7 instrumental pieces. 2 are on Chaturangui, 2 are on Dobro, and 3 are on Weissenborn. The shortest piece is 3 minutes and 58 seconds.....the longest is 12:50. There are three pieces over 12 minutes. 

There are three main things that are at the heart of this project: the first was my visit to Kolkata in Nov. of 2016 to study Chaturangui with Debashish Bhattacharya.......the second was being selected to play in the "Thousand Incarnations of the Rose Festival", in Takoma Park Maryland, birthplace of John Fahey.........and the third was the death of my Dobro teacher and friend, Stacy Phillips. The shortest piece on the album is called "North Star".....and I wrote it the morning I found out that Stacy had passed.....

Risks and challenges

no real risk, other than not getting all the funds in time...........
