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 . . .
