My incredibly resourceful and beautiful wife Lindsay has accepted a fantastic first great teaching position at Yaquina View Elementary school in the completely unfairly beautiful town of Newport, Oregon. We are, at the risk of understating it, deliriously happy.
I’m honored to have been asked to design the tee this year for the Darrington Bluegrass Festival. Featuring Whitehorse Mountain, an old fiddle, and a beautiful new banjo, this will be available on black heather and jet black garments. If you want to get your tee shirt, be sure to get your tickets soon for the festival! For more information on availability, please contact the Bluegrass & Country Music Makers Association.
Introducing the 2019 Valley Bluegrass Festival tee! This year’s design was a real pleasure to paint. The background includes a stylized view down the Clearwater valley, with a dreadnought-style guitar and a longneck 5-string banjo in the foreground.
I'm proud to partner with my bluegrass band, Wanigan, as we launch Wanigan.net and Wanigan.net/store. Along with other industry partners, Firewind Productions is able to provide Wanigan with on-demand printing, shipping, and fulfillment of the highest quality apparel, posters, embroidered items like hats and jackets, and other items. Everything is printed in the United States and shipped around the world.
I'm pleased to announce that we have created a scholarship program for music students. For students that have a strong desire to learn but don't have the financial means to do so, we have set up a fund where their tuition can be partially or completely covered.
It's been an interesting week here in the lovely little town of Darrington, Washington and the Seattle metro area. We have been visited by what some here are calling "Snowpocalypse 2019." Or, what people in my hometown of Coeur d'Alene would have called, "Sunday afternoon."
I’m pleased to tell you that my beautiful wife Lindsay and I have relocated to Darrington, Washington: a lovely little town located in the middle of the Cascades. Lindsay is now the kindergarten teacher for Darrington Elementary School, where she is having an exciting time with an all-new class of little guys and gals. You can follow her adventures on her new blog at MissLindsay.org.
