Hello friends and thanks for stopping by.

What a long, strange trip its been these past few years. I've just signed up to take some recording classes online and am having a blast learning all the ins and outs and wow, there are a lot! I'm hoping to produce my own solo record and am busy working on a new project with my duo partner dobro master Doug Cox. Stay tuned for more info about that! James has been busy working on renovating our humble abode and doing a great job. He's actually built me a new vocal booth! 

You'll notice the website has a new look too thanks to Nashville Artisan Photographer Alan Messer. Doug and I spent the afternoon with him at his studio in September and wow, Alan took some of the greatest photos of us both duo shots and solo shots. Thanks so much Alan. Check out his work at . 

Things are finally opening up again and
I'll be doing some live shows as well as teaching songwriting at some music camps this summer.

Americana Highways Top 100 Reader's Poll Going to the Well made #15!!! Rough Edges and Ragged Hearts #17!

The Arc of Music #5!

Recorded in St. Thomas, ON by producer Deni Gauthier, GOING TO THE WELL is a courageously stripped to the bone recording, the bulk of which features McRae on acoustic guitar, banjo and vocals. Rounding out the recording are: Gurf Morlix on guitar/vocals, Bill Kirchen on guitar/vocals Shara Gustafson on bg's and Deni Gauthier on guitar.

"I’ve had many requests for a recording that better represents my live shows and includes some of the cover songs I frequently do. I can’t thank YOU, the listener, enough for coming out to the shows and buying my music. This is for you!"

Thanks for stopping by!
