North Texas Irish Festival 

It was a huge honor to be a Featured Performer at the 36th North Texas Irish Festival.  I performed 3 shows on 2 different stages. I also played fiddle and harp for The "5 O'Clock Band" of the North Texas School of Irish Music. I hope to see you all again next year!

New Song! 

I just recorded the lead vocal for a beautiful new song composed by Grant Malloy Smith! 

Garden On the Moon


 

First United Methodist Church 

The First United Methodist Church in Richardson. I played harp and sang on Rick Holt's beautiful new arrangement of O Little Town Of Bethlehem, accompanied by Rick Holt, the FUMCR children’s ensemble choir, the chancel choir and other musicians. What an honor! 

Progressive Heavy Metal Harp? 

I was hired to record an interlude for a progressive heavy metal song. It never gets dull around here! Hmmm, 8th notes on a harp at 170 bpm? Thank goodness I have all that Irish dance music under my fingers!! My folks have video evidence.  :-)

Billboard Charts! 

I am so excited! I sang the solo on the first track of this album that has now charted at #1 on Traditional Classical!!   
The album also charted: #3 Classical Albums, #13 Christian Albums, #20 Christian/Gospel Albums, and #3 Heartseekers South Atlantic. "Reformation 500 Anniversary Album: Celebration Of Spirit"

House Concert - Hurricane Harvey Benefit 

We had a nice turnout for our house concert last night. The concert was streamed live!  All proceeds will go to The Red Cross to assist the victims of Hurricane Harvey. It's always so much fun to share the stage with Chris Grooms and Nathan Kennedy!
