Those of you who have followed me for a long time know the importance of one Finn MacGinty to my musical career. Four years ago this month, Finn had a terrible fall and sustained a traumatic brain injury and requires constant care. We recorded quite a bit together, he and I; this selection of songs is from an album released in 1999 (engineered by PJ Newman). It features some old friends: Chris Brinn on accordion, Nancy Conescu on backing vocals, and Ted Kamp on bass. All proceeds from the re-release of these recordings will benefit Finn’s ongoing care. The minimum donation is $5 — there is no maximum — and your generosity will be greatly appreciated by all who know and love him.

Rain or shine, Irish Tuesdays at Edgefield begin June 2 and run through the end of August.  If sunny and no MainStage concert, we’ll be at the Little Red Shed for an all ages show from 7-9pm.  If it’s raining, or there is a MainStage concert, we’ll see you in the cozy Winery!
