The time has come to share some big news. Colin and his wife will be hitting the high seas this fall on their sailboat Wavelength. It's an open-ended adventure that will take them throughout the Caribbean and beyond.

Between now and then, there are also a few festival appearances, including at the Bogalusa Blues Festival, Gretna Heritage Festival, Ten Sixty Five Festival (Mobile, AL) and the Voice of the Wetlands Festival. We hope to catch you at one of these performances!
