KG April Update: Byron’s Fundraiser / New Album Pre-Order Still Available / Here Comes Summer

Hi friends,
I’m taking a break from packing the van and thought I’d check in with you.

Coming up this Friday, April 12, I’ll be playing “The Nashville Songwriter Showcase” in Ft. Dodge, Iowa–it’s a fundraiser for Byron’s, a legendary venue a little northwest of Ft. Dodge, in Pomeroy, IA. I’ve played Byron’s many times, and it’s always an incredible, life-affirming experience. It appears that proprietor Byron Stuart will likely be forced to move his venue to another property, and that’s why we’re having this fundraiser–to help supply the funds needed for such a move. Byron’s is an important part of the live music community in the Midwest. Please come out if you’re in the area!

New Album! Preorder Yours Now! The preorder campaign for the forthcoming new release is still going strong–if you haven’t gotten in on the action yet, go to  to find out more. I welcome your questions, etc.:

Speaking of the new release, things are moving right along; I had new photos taken last weekend, and the recording itself just came back from the mastering engineer a few days ago. It sounds great and I can’t wait to share it with you! If you are in on the preorder, you’ll get all the news (and the music) first.

Summer’s on the way–I’ll be playing some of my favorite towns, including (in June) Newport KY, Columbus, Cleveland, Buffalo, and the Rochester International Jazz Festival on June 24. We’ll be at FitzGerald’s in Berwyn, IL on July 19. As ever, check the tour page for updates–grab your tickets–and I hope to see you out there!

March Update: New Album Pre-Order / Tin Pan South / New Tour Dates

Hi folks,
It’s been a busy time around here! Lots to tell you about–let’s dig in:

Pre-Order Campaign in Full Swing:  We launched the pre-order campaign for the new album on February 21, and the response has been overwhelming (in a very good way). So far we’ve received orders from 31 states & 7 countries! Along with being the first to hear it, by participating you’ll also be privy, pre-release, to exclusive information and writing about the album from yours truly. Here’s the link to the lowdown:

Got questions? Lemme at ’em:

Live Shows Coming Up: For the first time in many years, on April 4 I’ll be performing in a writers’ round for the annual local songwriters’ festival, Tin Pan South, put on by the fine folks at Nashville Songwriters Assocation International(NSAI). Check my tour page for details–I’ll also be playing a short set on April 6 at one of my favorite neighborhood shops/venues, Delgado Guitars, on the Music Makers Stage with my pal Jeff Black and many others. “Tin Can East” will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. More details to come.

Byron’s benefit: On April 12 I’ll be performing at a benefit concert in Ft. Dodge, IA for the Iowa venue I often refer to as the center of the universe, Byron’s, in Pomeroy, Iowa. I’ll be joined by Amelia White, Carter Sampson, Robert Deitch, and David G. Smith–here’s the groovy poster:


Update: Due to apparent technical issues with Eventbrite, as of now tickets are now only available at the door.

On the road: Keep an eye on the tour page–lots more summer tour dates to be announced!

Thank you for your support!
