BOULDER, COLORADO
~ Please share this with your friends ~

Finally the time has arrived to return to Boulder and perform for some of my dearest of friends and fans. I am grateful for this opportunity to share my music and I look forward to see each and every one of you! After all the remarkable years I spent sharing my music in Boulder, here it is more than a decade later and I have a loving home to return to. Thanks to the hospitality of the venues and hosts, this has shaped up to be a very special couple of weeks of music and collaborations.

Here is the complete list of my musical events as a leader from October 6th - 15th. Each performance is tailored to highlight a unique genre, a different repertoire and share a particular story from my musical odyssey. For some real time updates, friend me on facebook!

Thank you all for the support and love, see you soon!

The workshop will be open to all. I will share some of the concepts I have developed in my experience working in a wide range of styles. Primary focus will be on looking at rhythmic concepts and relationships between Jazz, Brazilian and African music on the guitar.
