Anna, Jamie and I were invited to play at the Ferrara
Buskers Festival in Italy a few weeks ago. Jeremy was
invited too but couldn't make it due to prior commitments.
We had a great time playing every day of the 10-day festival
and met loads of people from all over the place. It was
incredible to have such attentive, gracious and encouraging
crowds at every show we played. We set up on narrow streets,
beautiful piazzas and even in the courtyard of the castle.
And I tell you, there's a reason papparazzi is an Italian
word. I don't think any of us ever had our picture taken so
frequently and simultaneously. We met a lot of other great
musicians from all over the world and got to eat 3 meals a
day with them in the hotel. Hotel Astra was full of buskers
and it was always fun to walk down the hallways and hear the
sounds of fiddles, kazoos, trumpets, djembes and guitars
coming from behind closed doors. Lots of good stories out of
these few days! Thanks to Katie Ferrara for hooking us up
with the gig and to Stefano Bottoni and Roberta Galeotti for
having us over! read more »
Our new record is officially out! It's been a pretty long
process but we're really happy that it's come to fruition.
Still working on the specifics of a full-on record release
party in London but we're looking at September to do that.
Check out the store to buy it on CD or iTunes. If you want
to download it, we'd prefer if you bought it
at https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/nortonmoney3 as we get a
bigger piece of the action there than on iTunes. read more »
Did you know Norton Money has a record coming out? Yeah,
it's coming out this week! We'll be playing the Maverick
Festival this Friday and will have it for sale. Then we're
gonna have a record release party in London later in the
summer. Stay tuned for the details on that! read more »
Wow, the calendar's really filled up quickly for next month.
Some different kinds of shows, like sitting in with The
Hallelujah Trails and a rare solo set with me on electric
guitar playing my moodier tunes. Check out the details on
the Gigs page. Hope to see you down at a show! read more »
