March 2020

2019 turned out to be a fantastic year of growth, and it looks like 2020 already holds a lot in store.  Thanks to everyone I got to play music with and all those who came out to shows to hear us.  Berklee and Boston were an incredible experience that I’ll always remember and be inspired by.  It made me realize that there is so much more to learn in areas that I didn’t even know about before going.  You can check out my Instagram feed to see lots of pictures of my time there ...

I was very fortunate to win a bursary from the Victoria Bluegrass Association to attend NimbleFingers Bluegrass and Old-Time Workshop & Music Festival in beautiful Sorrento, BC this past August.  In short, it was an awesome time and I got to study with David Benedict for a week.  You can read my full review over at the VBA’s website Tai’s NimbleFingers Review

In December we hosted John Reischman and the Jaybirds here on Denman Island. It was a great night and I was fortunate to be able to open the show for them with Taz Oldaker on fiddle, and my brother Ekou, on guitar. I am working with Concerts Denman again this year and am working on a couple of shows for the coming season. You can check out their website here ... Concerts Denman 

If you haven’t seen my “MUSIC” page in a while, I just added 3 videos that you might enjoy checking out.

Right now I am focusing on finishing high school in June. With that said, I already have a few shows this spring/summer lined up that I’m really looking forward to. You can see the dates and places on the SHOWS page. I also  had a couple of shows coming up soon cancelled due to the Corona virus.  Take care of yourselves and wash your hands and hopefully we can put this behind us soon!


Hope to see you soon ...
