Karl Blau at Kennelly Keys

Karl Blau played a solo acoustic set last night at Kennelly Keys Music in Anacortes.  It was vintage Karl, making jokes about tuning by ear, and sudden screams into the microphone.  I’d been waiting to get some good pictures of him for a while.

Alfred Currier exhibit

As part of my work with Skagit Art Music, I had the pleasure of seeing the impasto work of Alfred Currier, on exhibit at Burton Jewelers in Anacortes on Friday March 2, 2018.

Al follows in the footsteps of some of the classic impressionists and depicts the beautiful Skagit Valley and the migrant workers who contribute to its aesthetic and economic well being.

Recording with Bachelor Number Four

My friends in the band Bachelor Number Four invited me in to their recording session last night at the Unknown Studio in Anacortes.   They had put in a long day already by the time I had arrived but were gracious enough to allow me to lurk while they laid down the guitar/bass parts on several songs.


The band consists of: Dave Lervik / guitar & vocals, John Bisagna / Guitar, accordion & vocals, Don Morley / bass & vocals, and Andrew Culp / drums.

Look for this power-pop album of originals at one of their upcoming shows!
