Thanks for 2016

Looking back at 2016, I have many reasons to feel grateful.  Six big tours completed, with more than 100 dates in the US and in Europe; a new CD 'Colorado Mornings', released in March, to very good reviews internationally; half the material written for a new CD (recording tentatively scheduled for 2018); proofs revised and readied for the publication of my Paris novella 'In The Season Of The Night' (available on Amazon from February 2017); and perhaps most gratifyingly, picking up the 'Artist Of The Year' award from the house concert network Concerts In Your Home (to be announced late January 2017).  This is the second time CIYH have named me an 'Artist Of The Year' (the first was in 2013), so I consider it an exceptional honor.  Here's to 2017, in spite of the many dark clouds that surround us.  Thankfully and with best wishes to all, Rupert
