Jaime's been off the road for a while working on a new recording project. This one is an album of cover tunes (Jaime's little tip o' the hat to his all time musical hero, Tom Rush). The album is called "unknown blessings" and features songs written by friends who with whom he shares a love for the late night campfires and song circles at the Kerrville Folk Festival.
The album will be released at this year's festival where Jaime will be playing an in-the-round concert with Rj Cowdery
, Annie Wenz
and Dan Navarro
on Tuesday, May 28th. All the proceeds from the sales of the album will be donated to the Music Camp for Teens
that the festival runs in conjuction with the Texas Folk Music Foundation.
Jaime has recorded songs by Dan Navarro, Jack Hardy, Drew Nelson, Greg Trooper, Pat Maloney, Rj Cowdery, Joe Crookston, Amy Speace and six other great writers. He's being backed by two of Santa Fe's best players, Ben Wright on guitar and Josh Martin on upright bass with special guest appearances by England's George Breakfast , singer Larkin Gayl, Texas accordionist Joel Guzman, Austin's Albert & Gage and other fine artists. Once again, the whole shebang was recorded and produced by Jono Manson (their 8th album together).
