Hi to all. I hope this finds you well. I’ll be leaving home on Thursday for a couple weeks in the northeast and I’m looking forward to seeing many of my old friends. I’ll be in Lansing at the Ten Pound Fiddle along with Peter Lang on the 20th at 8, and a Guitar workshop at the Herb David Studio in Ann Arbor at 1PM on the 21st.
I’ll head over to Buffalo for a gig with my pal Doug Yoemans at the Stereo Advantage in Williamsville. It’s like a house concert, almost. I’ve done it before and really enjoyed the heck out of it. Showtime there is 7.
I’ll be buzzing down to Bethlehem, Pa for a 7:30 show at Godfrey Daniels, one of my favorite places. That’s Thursday the 26th. Brooks Williams will be joining me for that show. I just met him for the first time last month and not only is he really good, he’s a nice guy, too.
Friday I drive back to Rochester, NY for a show at the Daily Perks coffeehouse at 8 PM. I played there before too, and really enjoyed it. And I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the creative routing on the part of my agent.
Sunday night, the 29th, is a return to the venerable Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY. That’s a 7 o’clock show. I first took the stage there in 1972, believe it or not. They’re still going strong and still one of the great rooms around.
Johnny D’s in Somerville, Mass. is next, on Tuesday, the 31st, Hallowe’en. Scary. That’s an 8:30 show. If you’re in the Boston area I hope you’ll make it.
Wednesday November 1st I’m back in Pomfret, Ct. for a 7 o’clock house concert at the home of my friends Sally Rogers and Howie Bursen. It’s a wonderful room and Sally can bake! Howie’s a winemaker (as a matter of fact, a world-class winemaker!) so even if you don’t like music you might wanna make this one.
Directions can be had by calling 860-974-3089.
Thursday the 2nd I’m up in Portsmouth, NH at the Redhook Brewery at 7 PM. It’s a new place to me and I’m looking forward to it.
On Friday, the 3rd I’ll be in concert at the Unitarian church in Ellsworth, Maine. It’s a 7:30 start and it’s a benefit for the local community radio station, WERU. They’re a very good bunch of folks who play a lot of roots and folk music. My old pal Jay Peterson has a show there.
On Saturday I’m back at the Yellow Door in Montreal for an 8 o’clock show. Then I get to start driving home.
I have a few things in November on the home front, including some recording work, both for myself and for others.
In December Kari Larson and I will be doing at least one (and hopefully two) Christmas concerts. I’m really excited to be doing this; Kari is my favorite musician on the planet!
I’d also like to mention, because I’ve gotten some requests, I am available for lessons when I’m in your area, time permitting. Drop me an email if you’re interested in setting something up.
