We’re going to keep the sponsorship campaign open through this coming Sunday, December 4. Ending on the first of the month just seemed too neat and orderly for this operation. We’ll also be offering the CD for sale on the store page very soon; sponsors will be given the opportunity to purchase additional Gloryland CDs at a discounted rate, via the exclusive sponsor page. (If you are a sponsor and haven’t received an email with log-in info about this page, please email us and we’ll fix it).
I’m off tonight, spending some much needed quiet time at a farm house in Keithville, La.. Learning a Leadbelly song, starting to work on some new songs of my own, eating more Zapps potato chips than I want to admit. There’s a train that goes by my window so close and loud I still think it’s gonna hit the house every time it comes though. The regional pleasures are many.
Tomorrow night (Thursday 12/1) I’m in Hot Springs, Arkansas, playing Maxine’s. In a last-minute development, my old friend Buddy Flett will be opening the show at 9pm. He’s influenced my guitar playing, songwriting, (and life) since, oh, around 1983. If you haven’t seen or heard him, please do so. Hope to see you there–
