I have always been an advocate of community outreach performances—from college to kindergarten, it's always fun to go back to school! If you'd like to have me visit your school for assembly performances, and classroom workshops, get in touch with me or my friends at Academic Entertainment!


Check out some artists I've played with, DJs who dig my tunes, hip venues, and things I think are cool.

Welcome to the Triple Door June Edition of

The Geoffrey Castle Newsletter

Yes, that's right! I'm back at the Triple Door! And I've got plans to make another Live CD, with a video crew there to capture every moment as it unfolds. This time, I'm doing the music of the Deep Well Sessions with the addition of my friend, and amazing drummer Darin Watkins plus — just to spice things up — I'm bringing some very special guests, including the Fleurs d'Egypte belly dance troupe, aerialists from Emerald City Trapeze Arts, and maybe even an appearance by my friend Josephine Howell. This will be a magical night that you will not want to miss!

Get your tickets today before they're all gone!

But before we get to anything else (including a theater show in Concrete, a possible trip to Catalina Island, and more!) I just want to welcome everyone who is getting this newsletter for the very first time. Hundreds of you have signed up since the last newsletter went out in May so if you're getting this for the first time, welcome!

Download Store/ CDs With No Shipping or Handling Charges
If you haven't heard the music of Deep Well, you should really cruise over to my download store — powered by D.I.Y Music Platform — on my Web site. You can listen to songs before you buy, you can grab individual songs or just get the whole thing. And unlike iTunes, you have the option of selecting the superior, audiophile-friendly WAV format (totally uncompressed audio!) for the same price as an MP3. It sounds better. And this is not available on iTunes at all.

You can also pick up copies of all the CDs I have in print through my online store as well, shipped to anywhere in the US! The best part? NO SHIPPING OR HANDLING CHARGES! Send 10 copies to all your friends!

Calling all fiddlers!
I have the distinct honor of being invited to be a part of the illustrious faculty of Strings Without Boundaries this June at Central Washington University, in Ellensburg WA. This is a week long master-class-style workshop residency where aspiring fiddlers can learn from the best players around. And me. <LOL> The workshops run from June 23 through June 28 and you can sign up by visiting
