Greetings from the Tennessee Sahara; current temp 99, expected high of 104. Hope you are staying cool wherever you are. I was getting tired of mowing the lawn anyway.
A few shows coming up: Iowa City, IA tomorrow (Friday 7/6), an “Intimate at the Englert” show at the beautifully restored Englert Theater in downtown I.C. Showtime is 8 pm. Only 100 tickets will be sold. On Sunday, 7/8, I’ll be back at Byron’s in Pomeroy, IA; showtime 5pm. I’ll be joined by Steph Dickinson on upright bass and Tommy Perkinson on drums for both of these shows.
Next week I’ll be in Jackson, MS at Duling Hall, opening solo for Truth and Salvage Co. on Thursday, July 12, showtime 7:30pm. On Friday 7/13 I return to one of my favorite rooms, Chickie Wah Wah, which is in one of my favorite cities, New Orleans. Showtime 8pm. Saturday July 14 finds me at the legendary Almost Austin house concert series, in Pasadena TX. I’ve been itching to get back to Kenny’s place since playing there a few years ago. On Sunday July 15 I’ll be at Threadgill’s South in Austin, playing their “School Night Sessions” series at 8pm. I’m back in Nashville on Wednesday, July 18, playing a Mondo Blues live broadcast from the Family Wash, at 8pm. I’ll be trading sets with the fabulous Etta Britt. Then . . . I’m taking a few days off!
Hot (literally) off the UPS truck, the new Gloryland women’s “angel” t-shirt is now available at shows, and via my facebook music page. (just click on the “shop” tab). I’ll be adding it to the store here on my site a.s.a.p. Beautiful 3-color angel graphic on a Gildan “Soft-Style” ladies shirt (poly-cotton blend). Sizes run smaller than normal:
Hope to see you soon! Thanks, as ever, for your support.
