Folk Alliance Conference: Feb.18-22





Hi folks–I’ll be playing several sets during the 27th Annual International Folk Alliance Conference in Kansas City, MO, which begins on Feb.18. These are all “private showcases” in various rooms and suites in the host hotel,  the Westin; yes, you must be a conference registrant in order to witness my heart-rending impersonation of a folk sanger (who happens to play songs I wrote). Here’s what I have scheduled so far–still plenty of open time, showcase presenters! (Hit me here if you’d like me to play for you: kevingordonmusic(at)

Wednesday, February 18:

9pm Anderson Fair showcase (room 633)

12:30am Access Film Music (Yellow Room (#TBA))

1:30am Hillbilly Haiku showcase (room #TBA)


Thursday, February 19:

2 a.m., WindRush House Concerts showcase(room 723)

Friday, February 20:

2 a.m., Session Americana(room 650)

It’s always a great time, and one helluva tax write-off!  More info on the way!

Early January Update

The new baby

The new baby

Happy new year! Hope those holidays were good to ya. I got new books, new socks, new gloves and a bottle of Woodford that I’m currently not drinking, but have sampled just to make sure it’s genuine, ha ha. Tasty it is. More about that later, maybe. In the photo at right is what I suppose I bought myself for my upcoming birthday–a 1964 National Reso-phonic. A pretty bird, an odd bird. (for you non-guitar folks, I believe that finish is referred to as “mother-of-toilet-seat”, or MOTS.) We’re getting along fairly well, and I look forward to playing it out live sometime soon.

I’m doing a few shows this month–resting up for what will be a very busy year, and otherwise getting the new record ready for release!  Saturday Jan. 17 I’ll be in Birmingham, AL, at the Bottle Tree Cafe, in duo formation with my good friend Joe V. McMahan; we’ll be sharing a bill with fellow east Nashvillian Tim Carroll. On Saturday 1/24 I’ll be making a long overdue return to the great city of St. Louis, playing a Kelly house concert, in duo formation, this time with my friend Steph Dickinson on the upright bass.

In February I’ll be at the Folk Alliance International Conference & Camp, in Kansas City, MO, which runs from 2/18-2/22. Attention Folk Alliance presenters–I’m still looking for opportunities to play, 2/18-2/20. You can find me at kevingordonmusic(at ) On 2/21 I’ll head north to play a Vangarde Arts show with my pal Amelia White. Stay tuned for more developments.

March finds me opening some shows for Todd Snider, as well as playing some shows in Austin TX during the annual traffic jam/music biz conference SXSW.

Stay warm–hope to see you soon!
