I’m looking forward to returning to the Kerrville Folk Festival over Memorial Day weekend to take part in the New Folk concerts. I am thankful to have been chosen to participate in this Texas event that celebrates songwriting. This is my second time at the metaphorical rodeo — I played New Folk in 2011. I’m looking forward to making some new friends and seeing some old ones. I was pleased to see a few familiar faces join the Class of 2018, including Michael Braunfeld, Susan Cattaneo and Austin MacRae. For more information, click here.

Yes, Aaron Nathans & Michael G. Ronstadt have completed our second album! If you liked “Crooked Fiddle,” well, this album is the next chapter. It’s like the last album, only more so. We can’t wait to share it with you. We’d love your support as we raise funds to print and promote this album. You can hear music clips from the new album within our Kickstarter video here.
Michael Ronstadt and I are looking forward to playing two shows in New England later this month, a Vermont house concert on Friday, 4/28 at the home of Mary Trerice & Karl Bissex, and Lakeview House Concerts in Sharon, Mass on 4/30. If you’re in the area, come join us!
