Some recent good news to share: I am very honored that one of my songs from my New Wings CD, "Jesse's Heart," is being used in a beautiful new documentary film by Anna Sofaer, founder of the Solstice Project. The film, "Written on the Landscape," is the 3rd in a trilogy by Ms. Sofaer about Chaco Canyon in New Mexico, the mysterious sacred site of ancestral Puebloan culture. In addition to a sold-out celebratory screening on Saturday June 8 at The Center for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Santa Fe, NM, there were several public screenings at CCA between June 7-13  as well as film screenings in Durango, CO on 6/7 and Albuquerque, NM on 6/14. I was honored to perform solo guitar at a private reception following the 6/8 screening in Santa Fe at CCA. In addition, the film will be televised on New Mexico's PBS station, KNME-HD 5.1 on Thursday, June 20, at 7:00 pm MST and WORLD 5.4 on Friday, June 21 at 9:00 pm MST.  For more information about Anna Sofaer and this amazing film, please visit https://solsticeproject.org
