“88 Notes”

Chris Spencer, a talented photographer and videographer over at Middlebury College, recently invited me over to the campus to make this short film in which I play a few songs on a really nice piano and stammer some rambling responses to basic questions in between. We hope you like it:

Speaking of Vermont, here’s a nice new write-up about Salt in County Tracks, a local music blog up there. You can stream that album here and order it here. And there’s a small handful of performances in northern New England coming up to round out the year; details for all of those are here.

I just got back from a quick swing down south, which looked variously like this, this, and this. I’m immensely pleased to report that while I was down there I finally played a gig in South Carolina, meaning that Delaware and Hawaii are now the only states that I still haven’t performed in. So if you live in Honolulu or Dover and want me to play in your backyard, please let me know — I’ll cancel all my plans and get there right away.

Oh, and finally, I’m very flattered to have been nominated for an award over at Red Line Roots this month, and would appreciate your vote if you’ve got a second! The other nominees in my category include a few of the most frighteningly talented musicians I know, but please don’t let that affect your position.

Thanks, everyone; I hope you’re all well.
Ben
