Windham Hill Winter Solstice Concerts December 2016

Last December I had the great pleasure of performing as part of a Windham Hill concert. It felt pretty amazing to be again part of something I began 40 years ago !
My cousin Alex de Grassi and pianist, violinist and vocalist Barbara Higbie were the other Windham Hill artists who performed with me and it was wonderful and magical and we all enjoyed it so much that we’ve decided to tour again in December of 2016.

In addition to these Windham Hill artists, Todd Boston whose CD TOUCHED BY THE SUN Tom Eaton and I produced a few years ago, will be playing duets with me and doing a few of his own brilliant pieces. We’ll be playing in Carmel, CA, Santa Barbara, CA, the Marin Civic Center, and Folsom Lake College in Folsom, CA. We hope to also be in the Northwest, Washington and Oregon, but these dates are not yet set.

I hope to see you at one of these shows !

All the best from Windham County, Vermont,

Will
