We got a end-of-the-year note today from Aaron Williams, the talented young mandolinist who had spent the past few years touring with Kenny & Amanda Smith. He wanted to let all his bluegrass friends know what he is up to these days.
“Hello all! I would like to take the time to formally let everyone know that I am no longer in the Kenny & Amanda Smith Band. I felt it was time to take a break from the road, and shift my focus towards pursuing an education. I would like to sincerely say thanks to Kenny and Amanda for the opportunity and experience gained. Thanks also to all the wonderful people I met while traveling with the band.
I am beginning my second semester of college soon, but am still open to fill-in dates, recording sessions, and lessons. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to seeing you all somewhere down the bluegrass road, and wish everyone a wonderful 2010!”
Spencer Strickland is now playing mandolin with Kenny & Amanda.
