On May 22, 2020, I performed a closed-set performance (COVID, you know) at North Beach Bandshell in Miami Beach for The Rhythm Foundation. Karen Feldner joined me on several songs. I’m quite proud of this performance. If you want to know who I am, what I do, and why I do what I do, this is it.

Here is me with Ash Devine, joined by Jerry Sutton and Bailee Brandon for the second song, performing at Shindig on the Green in Asheville, North Carolina, on July 23, 2022.
