We encourage you to contact your local Legion or VFW to find out how you can Help Bring The Wall to the Jefferson County Fair Grounds in August of 2013.


I'm Going To Italy

A "chance" meeting with a concert promoter at one of my recent shows has opened the door to a HUGE opportunity for me and my music career.    Here's the condensed version of a real life "....a guy walks into a bar.." success story:

This fellow walked in during one of my gigs at Robert's (in Nashville) and evidently liked what he heard.  It turns out he was the organizer of the Soave Guitar Festival in Italy.  We later had a dinner meeting and he asked me to come to Italy to perform at the festival in April 2013.  This is a HUGE honor for me because the performers are selected by invitation only and consist of some of the finest guitar players in the world.  Some of the past & present guitarist that have been invited to play at the festival include:  Tommy Emmanuel - Albert Lee - Greg Koch - Johnny Hiland - James Burton - Monte Montgomery & Frank Vignola.  If you are a guitar picker, chances are you know these guys and how good they are.  I'm thrilled yet humbled to be included with this level of talent.

New CD Coming Soon!!

My 4th studio album ("Stomping Ground") is almost complete!  We are putting the finishing touches on the CD artwork and will soon be sending everything off to the pressing plant.  I'm proud to announce that I will be teaming up with the American Legion & VFW to offer a special addition copy of the new CD that will raise funds to help bring the Vietnam Veterans Traveling Memorial Wall to my hometown in Brookville, PA.  Stay tuned for all the details.


Pork Teams Up with "New Pig"

I was recently contacted & asked to write some songs / jingles for a company located in Tipton, PA.   The company is called "New Pig" Corporation and they specialize in Spill Containment & Absorbent Products.  I wrote a song called "Grippy Mat" - ( which is the name of one of their new products) and another called "Here's To A Job Well Done".   Click on the logo below to learn more about New Pig and their products.


Gone But Not Forgotten

I am dedicating this newsletter to my buddy Max.  For those that did not know, Max passed way in April & has been laid to rest in the back corner of our yard.  It was a very sad day at the McElhinny home but we are thankful for the 12 years of happiness that he brought into our lives.  He will be missed.

3 Shows at The Hourglass - Brookville, PA

I will be coming home to Brookville to spend Easter with my family this year, and I've decided to play a few shows at the Hourglass while I'm in town!  Although I sometimes play bigger venues when I'm home, the Hourglass has always been (and will always be) "home base" for me. It's where this whole thing started for me, and I still enjoy playing there from time to time and seeing so many good friends.
