The Spark Tour with Ben Sollee(Sparrow Quartet) & Emily Braden

BC & Alberta March 2015

While at the Canmore Folk Festival in 2013 award winning NYC voclaist Emily Braden and I had the pleasure of performing in a workshop with a remarkable cellist know to some by his work with Bella Fleck in The Sparrow Quartet by the name of Ben Sollee. With the help of the other talented folks on that stage we dropped right the kind of raging jam that is a rare treat in life of an artist or a concert goer. After a co-writing trip to NYC in the fall we’re now all re-uniting for a recording session and a handful of gorgeous concert dates around BC and Alberta March 25-29. This show is true triple bill with each of us introducing originals and favorites and taking turns on leads. Join us and let  the sparks fly!
