Happy Monday to you–
Going to cut to the chase here–a couple of things you should know about, pronto:
On Wednesday, July 1, at 9pm EST I’ll be playing my first ever Concert Window show, from my dining room! Solo, intimate, up-close-and-personal, that sorta thing. Pay what you choose for a virtual ticket to watch from anywhere in the world, and there will be rewards available in exchange for your tips! And you can ask me questions and make requests. Here’s the link for more info:
We’ll be adding a few more tasty tip rewards between now and showtime.
Yeah, THESE guys:
This coming weekend finds me on the road, playing two shows with three guys I’ve played music with for 20 years: Ron Eoff, Paul Griffith, and Joe V. McMahan. We’ll be playing one of my favorite festivals, the 34th Annual FitzGerald’s American Music Festival, in Berwyn, IL, on Saturday, July 4, on the club stage at 4pm. On Sunday, July 5, we’ll be at Natalie’s in Columbus, OH; I played a solo show there back in January of 2014, and it’s a great venue–not just for music–their food is incredible! It’ll be the first time I’ve played Columbus with a full band in 15 years–how did that happen???
Hope to see you out there, somewhere–
Just sayin’ hey–hope your week’s going well. I’ve been home all this month, but that will change very soon. After a Nashville show this Saturday, June 27, at City Winery, swapping songs with my very talented friends Sarah Potenza and Jeff Black, I’ll be gearing up for a Concert Window show on July 1, from right here at the abode. Stay tuned for details on that. Then the wheels roll, with a vengeance: a weekend out with the quartet (w/Joe McMahan, Ron Eoff, and Paul Griffith) July 4-5 (7/4: FitzGerald’s 29th Annual American Music Festival, Berwyn IL; 7/5: Natalie’s, Columbus OH), I’ll be hurrying home on the 6th to drop off the band, do laundry, then start my drive to Texas on July 7. See the tour page for more details, but I’ll be playing several shows in that great big state from July 8-15, starting with a show at The Live Oak in Ft.Worth on July 8, and a Gold Teeth Music house concert in Dallas on July 10. Still looking for a show or two for 7/16 and 7/17, because I’ll be making my way to Pomeroy, IA for a return to Byron’s, on Sunday July 19, playing in trio formation with Steph Graham and Jim Viner! Sure to be a massive throw-down, the kind best rendered way out in the country . . .
Greetings, friends and lurkers, “Hot when it’s hot like this”: That’s a quote from a painting by Mary T. Smith, that’s very appropriate. It’s getting very Summer-ish around here. Went for a run this morning at 8:30 and the “feels like” temp was already 85. The bright green of Spring beginning to dull; flowers out […]
Happy Tuesday greetings, fellow travelers– I’m getting a day-late start this week due to being out of commission yesterday, but I’m back on the coffee and feeling the pleasant thrum of caffeine sloshing in the brain. Two shows this week, both here in Nashville: Thursday, 5/14 Five Spot 6-8pm (full band show w/Joe McMahan, […]
