I have the immense pleasure of performing at the Pengilly’s open mic in downtown Boise tonight with the talented musician and songwriter, Paul Russell, and angelic singer and general miscreant, Michelle Estrada. We’re super excited to share our music with you! Here’s a teaser to whet your appetite for what’s to come tonight; or, for those who can’t make it into Idaho on such short notice, a chance to hear one of the sets I’ll be playing with Paul.
It’s not the first time Mr. Einaudi’s gorgeous piano tunes have been played on the harp but this is the first time I moved one of his songs from horizontal keys to vertical strings. “Nuvole Bianche” strikes me as poignant and contemplative, a song that isn’t played so much for the glitz and glamor like a hot set of reels on the fiddle as it is for reflection and thoughtfulness. (Okay, it does get a little fancy a few minutes in…)
