ORDER HERE! Spiral-bound now or hardcover later

I’m very excited about my pre-release of Acoustic Chef, an international cookbook with music to go with each recipe.  Check out clips

I’ve collected recipes from my travels and have composed/arranged and recorded tunes for each. Guest musicians include the Tuvan throat singers Alash, Hungarian gypsy fiddler Zoltán Baranyi, Lulo Reindhart (Django’s grandson), Tierra Negra, Lee Nourtsis on bouzouki with string quartet, and Rory Hoffman on accordion. Great fun! 

Pre-release spiral-bound copies are available now and hardcover copies will be available in March.

For 2019, I’m making an effort to combine what I do with what I believe in by donating 20 percent of net for all my USA shows to the Music for Life Alliance. In turn, MFLA funds my performances at benefit concerts for grassroots organizations like Guitars In the Classroom, Little Kids Rock, WO Smith, and many others. Next year a portion of the new cookbook/music CD will benefit the MFLA.

I should also mention, the “Nightlight Daylight” page includes a link to download a free bonus track.
