Since entering the Bluegrass, Old-Time, and Country Music Studies program at ETSU, I have had the chance to collaborate with a multitude of great musicians and people. I have been able to be to create and write new music with friends that if not for coming to ETSU , I maybe wouldn’t have made. For my project this semester I would like to record a collection of original songs and instrumental music that either I, or my peers have written. I would like to feature musicians on it that also attend ETSU currently. I think this will be a great project for me to think creatively about and it will show my progress as an artist when I look back on it later.
