It hit 61 degrees in Northern Michigan in late February this year, so I'm here to tell you, spring is just around the corner! I've been taking a break from performing since the Red House and Porterhouse Presents concerts in early December, and spent the winter playing basketball. I learned a lot of new skills from my coach, Tom Dickinson, and the other parent coaches at The Pathfinder School. It was really fun to be on the team. I can't wait to do it again next year! I also scored front row seats to a Chris Eldridge, Julian Lage, and Aoife O'Donovan concert at Interlochen this winter. I stood in line to meet them after, and they were all so friendly. Definitely go see them if you get the chance!

I spend a lot of time researching guitars and finally decided to upgrade to a Martin HD28V. I walked into Traverse City Guitar one day and there she was - just waiting for me! She's a beauty. I spent my life savings on her, but she's worth it. Then something even better happened. I found a luthier who was willing to teach me how to actually build a guitar! Bruce Davis is a retired engineer who has spent the last 16 years building instruments in his workshop. And he's the nicest guy ever. If you're not a guitar nerd, skip this next section: We are building a full-size dreadnought, and I get to pick out all the materials - redwood top, Madagascar rosewood back and sides, African mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard and bridge, snowflake inlay, koa binding, herringbone rosette and trim. I can't wait to show you! He also has some really beautiful guitars for sale at TC Guitar if you are in the market.

This spring, I will be performing three free concerts, starting with a spring break road trip. I'll be on a radio show with a live audience in Knoxville, then I'll swing by Nashville for a few days before heading north to play the Sunday service at C3 in Grand Haven. It will be my first time in Nashville, so be sure to let me know if there's something I need to see or do! In May, my mom is really looking forward to having me perform at TEDx Traverse City. She's a big fan. So that's it for now, folks! Hope to see you this spring!
