Europe Tour, Summer 2011
November 13, 2011
This past summer, I went on my first real solo tour in Europe – shows throughout Scotland, Italy, and Spain (and I also hung out a bit in Paris with the lovely musician Hannah Read). It was a wonderful experience. I met so many kind, interesting new friends, explored beautiful cities and countrysides, learned a lot, and played a ton of music. Recently, I put together this video to share some of what happened. You can also check out some of the photos from the tour here.
In Scotland, my first stop, I played the 4th of July Party for the US Consulate in Edinburgh, and a Douglas’ Place House Concert, which were both great ways to kick off the experience. Special thanks to Dana Linnet and to photographer Douglas Robertson for hosting those. In Italy, the Tuscan Institute of Music and Art sponsored two wonderful gigs, in Prato and Campi Bisenzio, and I also had the blessing of performing with Luigi Gagliardi‘s Suryananda Project, a band of great musicians from Florence. Spain was the final country on the tour, and it was a total blast. I got to play several concerts and radio programs with songwriters Guillermo Marin and Sharin, in Madrid, Zaragoza, and Barcelona. Thanks to Guillermo and Encinta Productions for making that happen.
Thanks also to everyone who came out to the shows. This was such a positive experience for me, and I loved meeting you all. Hope to come back in 2012!
