Musician in Residence

Mike Hudson - May 2017

In his Gateway to Wilderness residency proposal, multi instrumentalist Mike Hudson of Harrisonburg, VA wrote that he desired a month-long residency experience at Otto's Abode that would allow him to explore the limitations of solely and acoustic guitar, lyric writing and a 4-track tape recorder. His goal was to create and record a body of work based around local inspiration. We are happy to announce his goal was achieved and the project is currently in the post-production phase.

When not writing, performing, recording, or listing to music, Mike found himself climbing low and high peaks, reading up on local history, short-cut driving weary Cranberry Lake 50 hikers, checking out Montreal (for the first time!), whackin' croquet skills with the best of 'em and soaking up the magic of Wanakena.

Be sure to check out recordings of Mike's current band Z-Plan and stay tuned for the finished product of his residency at Otto's Abode. Cheers to new friends!
