Great show with Me & Dixon at the Cat's Cradle Dec.13th 

Frank Heath has one of the best music venues in the South, and it's The Cat's Cradle in Chapel Hill-Carrboro, NC. I played the opening set with Me & Dixon on Dec 13th to a packed house of old and new friends. Me & Dixon is Parthenon Huxley, Rob Ladd and Don Dixon, producer and performer extrarordinaire. Don, Parthenon and I exchanged songs in the second set, it was a treat to hear them both on acoustic guitar and also have them play with me on my tunes.

10/2/15 - The White Horse Black Mountain 

I had the best time at the White Horse in Black Mountain, NC playing for a great crowd of new and old friends. Bob Hinkle did a fantastic solo set and we played a few tunes together before my set. Thanks Bob, Don and all the folks at the The White Horse for a great time!
