The Thousand Incarnations of the Rose

Hello!

It’s an incredible honor to announce I’ll be playing The Thousand Incarnations of the Rose coming up April 13-15. The festival takes place in Takoma Park, MD (hometown of John Fahey) and brings together rare appearances of luminaries such as Peter Lang, Harry Taussig, and Peter Walker alongside younger players expanding on the rich lineage of American primitive guitar. In addition to live music, there will also be panel discussions, previously unseen live footage of artists like the late great Jack Rose, and the D.C. premier of documentary Voice of the Eagle: The Enigma of Robbie Basho. To learn more about the festival and it’s inspiration, check out this excellent feature.

I hope you can make it to this very special event!

Warmly,

DPG

Setting intentions for the new year…

Greetings and happy New Year!!!

Rather than going down the rabbit-hole of committing to concrete and often unrealistic resolutions for the new year, I’d like to begin 2018 by setting some intentions that offer a little more wiggle room. Speaking for myself, this means exploring the process and becoming less attached to outcomes or specific “goals”.

Here are a few that come to mind…

  • Look for ways to collaborate more. This can be through creative pursuits, volunteer work, and dialogue within and across communities.
  • Wellness… cooking more, exercise, meditation, and reducing stress.
  • Nurture friendships and look for opportunities to meet new people.
  • Spend time in nature.
  • Make more music and stay open to the many possibilities.
  • Love more.

Wishing you all peace, good health, and creativity in the New Year!

With love,

DPG

Two exciting SF shows next week!

Hi folks!

I’m playing a couple shows next week in SF I hope you can make it to:

Friday, October 13th I’ll be playing a solo set opening up for my buds Balmorhea (touring in support of their lovely new album, Clear Languge) at the Swedish American Hall. The following night, Saturday, Oct 14th, I’ll be collaborating with filmmaker Bill Basquin for Night Rounds, an exploratory evening of live film + music at the LAB. Both shows will be quite different…. be great to see you!

Warmly,

Stand with Bandcamp in supporting Trans rights!

I have been a long-time fan and user of the Bandcamp platform. They have  always advocated for progressive causes and finding ways of supporting the arts. This Friday, Bandcamp will be donating 100% of their sales to the Transgender Law Center. Please join me and the myriad artists – queer, trans, and beyond – to raise awareness and fight against transphobia. I will be donating 100% of my cut from sales as well.

Love to ALL,

DPG
