HOMEFIELDS is published!
Hey y'all Banjosnakers!
I'm thrilled and delighted to announce that after seven years of on-again, off-again work, HOMEFIELDS, The Art Of Lanford Monroe has finally been published! This is my book about the life and art of my late wife Lanford Monroe and her family, and I'm proud to say this thing looks great!
Above, you can see a cropped image of the cover (my scanner is only so big) and that'll give you an idea of what you're getting into with this book... there's well over one hundred color images of Lanford's incredible paintings, and numerous examples of her father and mother's work. Vintage photos, sketches, and of course the text - by yours truly - are also there. It's a big, five-pound, 12" x 12", hardcover, 223-page monster of great art, and it can be yours by ordering it here.
I've attended one booksigning already (my first! In Jackson, Wyoming!) but there's lots of others coming up... keep checking my "gigs" link for signing dates and locations... perhaps there'll be one near you! Futhermore, the deluxe, leatherbound, slipcased edition of HOMEFIELDS is coming out in mid-to-late October, so if you want to wait for that, I'll understand.
But don't think the music has stopped... in fact, I've got so many gigs between now and the end of the year that my head is spinning and may pop off! Kim and the Caballeros, Roger Landes and Chipper Thompson, and Bone Orchard are all going strong, not to mention that I'm finally booking some gigs of my own, both solo and with a trio version of The Feast, so check it out, and come hear me play some evening. And order your copy of HOMEFIELDS sooner rather than later! Hang in there, folk-n-rollers! See ya soon,
