A wonderful 2016

On a personal level, 2016 was rather difficult, with the death of many friends and heroes. Musically, for me, though, it was a blast, playing over 100 gigs for the first time in years. it was great to make music with Lost Radio Rounders, Ramblin Jug Stompers, Frank Jaklitsch & Friends, Lonesome Val and the Toddfellows, Don McGrory, Good Things, Sten Isachsen and so many others.
