Classical music at the Artfarm

It was a great honor to have Katya Grineva and Byron Duckwall in our space. It was a special honor to have Katya play our 1910 Steinway that recently had its action redone by Steve Greenstein from Vintage Piano Works.

Here are some videos of the performance.

Great things start small

Tracking demos for a new album by Max Kane. Excited about working with him and his brother Conor. Both siblings are multi-instrumentalists and play just about everything. I would describe the record, but we don’t know yet. The songs are great and both brothers have great voices so it will be a path of discovery. General direction, Chili Peppers meet Dave Matthews.
