NEW MOON | NEW MUSIC, Darrell's audio series, debuted February of 2009, and episodes coincide with each new moon (with a hiatus for awhile). Episodes are all chosen personally by Darrell, and vary from solo performances to a variety of band arrangements to special interviews with friends and musicians.

Darrell has this to say about New Moon | New Music:

here will be an ever changing view of some of the things i do when i leave my home
& at times it may be demos, new songs, unreleased, or whatever strikes me to put up
-i may even have conversations about music w/ some of my friends & throw that up here
& sometimes, i may bring out music of friends of mine that you may not know—
i will treat NEW MOON | NEW MUSIC as an ongoing sonic love-letter to the world (okay, just a cyber love-letter to you)

i hope you enjoy

Read more from Darrell about NEW MOON | NEW MUSIC:

i understand, both, the reality of putting out a record every 2 years
and the reality that in those same 2 years
i will have played maybe 120 to 200 sets of music
and i know that each set of music is totally unique
-1 record/200 sets- you do the math

i find it impossible to do anything the same way twice-
(cooking, writing, singing, playing, sleeping, dreaming, etc.)

-i have played solo (acoustic guitar, banjo, dobro, bouzouki, mandolin, piano, electric guitar, & even electric sitar)
and as i figure out other things (or not) i will try those, too
- i am fearless (yes, and even foolish)

so the same song tonight will be different tomorrow night (different instrument, different approach)

-and i have played duo
with bass: danny thompson (double bass) matt mangano, john cowan (electric)
with mandolin: tim o’brien, sam bush
with fiddlers: tim, sam, casey driessen, luke bulla
with guitar: bill frissel, david grier
with piano & accordion: gabe dixon, suzi ragsdale
with percussion: kenny malone, gary ogan
harmonica, saxophone, even a saw player in england,& spoons in oklahoma- on & on

then the array of vocals, too- chorus, soul singers, bluegrass, even opera

and i play trio, quartet, string quintet, rocking band, country band, bluegrass band, celtic band, full orchestra- on & on

the picture i am painting is records are one thing (1 in two years)
and live music is another thing (say, 200 in two years)

...................................................................

NOTE TO TAPERS
i have no higher gift to offer than to leave my home & family & friends & kitchen & cats
and bring the music to the people
that is why the music i play live is not the property of a taper
or even the property of the promoter who brought me
or the sound company whose mixing board & mics i am playing through

the audience pays money to see & hear music & they get music
the promoter pays to have musicians come to a venue & gets an audience for it & we play
the musician plays & gets paid for it; the sound crew, the caterer...

the ones who are “missing” in this agreement are my kids at home
-and having been in a quandary about "whose music is it, anyways"
after mucho consideration, i now know that in the above scenario it is my kids’music

THAT IS WHY I DO NOT ALLOW TAPING OF MY MUSIC IN SHOWS
it ain’t yours to tape- ‘tis my kids’

-and the doobie in hand doesn’t = access to music that is not yours-

no more than it ain’t yours to go to a museum, set up your digi equipment
& photograph an ansel adams’ exhibit, or video tape a broadway show
however, i want to make access to some of the music played throughout the world
with the wonderful musicians i am privileged to make music with
here on this web site

E N T E R: NEW MOON | NEW MUSIC so, here will be an ever changing view of some of the things i do when i leave my home
& at times it may be demos, new songs, unreleased, or whatever strikes me to put up
-i may even have conversations about music w/ some of my friends & throw that up here
& sometimes, i may bring out music of friends of mine that you may not know—
i will treat NEW MOON | NEW MUSIC as an ongoing sonic love-letter to the world (okay, just a cyber love-letter to you)

i hope you enjoy
