Excited about upcoming concerts with English guitarist, Ray Burley in Oxford, Bedford, Warwick, and Manchester this November. We have come up with a name, we are officially the Astraea Guitar Duo. We also have a small tour lined up in November 2016.
In April and May 2016, I will be collaborating with long time friend, Tamara McCoy.  Pianist and vocalist, Tamara was awarded an Individual Artist Award from the Rasmuson Foundation to concertize in Alaska and England. We will perform in five different cities in Alaska and in four different cities in England, including at the 1901 Club in London.
