    I have recorded a CD called Kaleponi, all solo acoustic slack key instrumentals, mostly traditional pieces, a few originals.


    You an buy a copy of the CD or download the tracks at CD Baby.

    If you prefer, you can download individual tracks or the whole album from iTunes as well.

    The complete liner notes and back cover notes of Kaleponi are available here.
