    "He Was a Friend of Mine" duet with Tom Freund out now!
    Friday, December 17, 2021 at 10:00am PST

    Today my duet with Tom Freund, a traditional song called "He Was a Friend of Mine," is out now on Mad Bunny Records and streaming everywhere.

    In 2022 it will be 30 years since Tom and I released our duo album "Pleasure and Pain." We have continued to collaborate consistently off and on since then, both recording and touring together.

    I've known Tom longer now than I haven't known him, and that's long.

    To have a friend to walk through the world with is rare and something I hold most dear. Something I cherish more each passing day.

    Hey Tom, let's do another 30.
