Rob's Upcoming Shows

August 2014

8/12/14 @ The Burren w/The Burren Gypsy Jazz All Stars (Somerville, MA)
8/13 @ Earthdance w/Chris Aiken (Smith College's Scott Studio; Northampton, MA)

Tomorrow I'll be at The Burren, my favorite Irish pub in Boston, playing gypsy jazz all night with a quartet of regulars who play there every week (I'm filling in for their regular violinist). No cover and great food; starts at 8:30 or so (get there early for dinner). A low-key surprise... good for you for being on this mailing list!

Then later this week, I'll be out at Earthdance collaborating with dancer and improviser Chris Aiken. This performance will be held in the Scott Studio at Smith College, and is the first time the Earthdance intensive has held their culminating performance in a public space. If you're in Western MA, stop by!

Other News


One of my favorite musicians at the Bates Dance Festival every year is the tabla virtuoso Rajesh Bhandari. We met there in 2010, and last April we recorded some improvisation-based duets in a studio in Miami. This year we finally have edited and mixed the tracks, and the result is a fresh and satisfying record! Currently I only have hard copies available for purchase at my shows, but stay tuned for online release details.

Summer Adventures

July flew by, and with it went two amazing camp experiences. I had an incredible time teaching at Hope Stone Kids New Orleans, and then at the Bates Dance Festival's Youth Arts Program. Be on the lookout for the annual BDF Musicians' Concert: video will be available for purchase soon!

Social Seam and Half-Price Lessons

One of my best friends in Boston has created a remarkable new website,, that enables businesses to incentivize donors to support local non-profits. To help him get off the ground, I'm offering private lessons for half my usual rate if you donate $1 or more to any of the charitable causes I support using the Social Seam platform. Even if you don't end up taking lessons from me, you might just get discounts on groceries, clothing, and more! Go check it out and support your community!
