Our First Performance! At Caffé Lena, Saratoga Springs

Our first performance!

At Caffé Lena in Saratoga Springs!

Having practically grown up at Caffé Lena, it was an emotional homecoming for Doug MacKenzie.  A short guest set resulted in a  foot-stomping standing ovation, a personal tour of the back rooms of Caffé Lena and some new friendships that will never be forgotten!

Sing Out! Magazine Recognizes WestRaga as Pick Of The Week!

On 8-28-2014 this track was listed as Pick of the Week by Sing Out! magazine’s official page on Facebook.I played the dulcimer here one quiet day at home, and I called it “Spontaneous Sunflower.” My friend Bill Dureen from Ontario added some tabla and other magical sounds via Korg synthesizer! My Applecreek 4-string mountain dulcimer is tuned DAD.
