Happy Friday everyone,
As those of you who peruse my facebook music page first saw yesterday, I posted a vlog of sorts–an experiment that will likely continue on a weekly basis. (Though next time, yes, I will turn the camera sideways.) It’s also posted on my youtube channel.
The next month is busy, road-wise. Check the tour schedule for details (kevingordon.net/tour); playing a trio set tonight at Hippie Jack’s Fall Fest, in Crawford TN, which will be recorded for future broadcast on the syndicated Live at Hippie Jack’s TV show, plus a guitar pull there tomorrow at noon CST with friends Jon Byrd and Amelia White. Monday October 1st I’m playing a live radio show broadcast, “Tennessee Shines”, on WDVX-FM in Knoxville TN. You can listen in on these innerwebs. Saturday, with drummer Mort, and bassist Steph Dickinson, we begin a week-long trio run, starting at one of my favorite places in the world, Landhaven, in Huff’s Church, PA. A bed & breakfast in an historic house–what used to be an attached dry goods store is now a stellar performance venue.
On Sunday October 7 we return, for a 5pm show, to Elk Creek Cafe and Aleworks–in beautiful Millheim PA. A great brewpub and music venue; enthusiastic crowds and the finest ale to be found anywhere usually provoke an extra-long show. Tuesday October 9 finds us in Milwaukee WI at legendary Shank Hall; Wednesday the 10th we’re playing the Shitty Barn Sessions in Spring Green, WI. Thursday the 11th we’re in Goshen, IN playing the Ignition Garage Music Series; Friday the 12th finds us in Champaign IL playing the Sandwich Life House Concert Series. On the 13th we return home to play a show that night at The Basement–a birthday party for our friend Tom, but open to the public. Joe McMahan will be with us on guitar that night. Also on the bill are Eric Brace & Peter Cooper, and Dan Navarro.
I’m flying up to Peace Dale, RI to play one of my favorites, a Roots Hoot house concert on Friday Oct. 20; from the 22nd through the 28th you will find me joining Paul Griffith and Lorne Rall doing our best cover band impersonation at the Hog’s Breath Saloon in Key West, FL, from 5-8pm EST every day! That’s a big October–hope to see you out at one of these shows!
