Homegrown Coffeehouse

What a tribute to Lynn Hollyfield, the place was packed and the audience was awesome. It’s so much fun playing with Lynn and the band (Steve Wolf on bass, Jim Queen on fiddle, Jimmy the Brink on percussion, Carey Creed on piano). Lynn’s new CD, In the Balance, is one beautiful song after another, check it out! Thanks to Lynn and Carey for singing with me during my opening set, they sounded so good!

Waynesboro, Virginia Fly Fishing and Wine Tasting Festival

We had such a good time this weekend playing in Waynesboro. Beautiful people, beautiful country. I even got to stand next to Lefty Kreh for a minute or two. I’m hoping some of that good ol’ fishin’ sense rubs off on me.

Brewer’s Alley

Had a great time playing out in Frederick. I love coming around the corner out there on 70 and seeing the mountains’ looming, welcoming presence. Rod Deacey’s poetry was definitely a highlight, Circle Game in particular. He and Mr. Holly are always good, but Monday was real good. Rockin’ Ray Jozwiak was awesome on piano, Don Brown played a great song, a real folk song, an oral history lesson really, and Dan Kenny was amazin’. It was a pleasure to meet Tony Denikos, he’s a real talent. Thanks for coming out and supporting the arts! See you out at Brewer’s again in April!

Beans in the Belfry

Thanks for listening last night, such a nice audience! Really enjoyed meeting the Boston U students who were visiting, safe journeys and best wishes!

Joe Squared North

Thanks to everyone for such a great evening! Special thanks to Andrew of June Star for helping us get set up. Man, best pizza ever at this place!

Brewer’s Alley Show Rescheduled

The new date is 3/24, hope to see you there!

Brewer’s Alley Show Postponed 3/3/2014

Due to the weather, the show tonight has been cancelled and will be rescheduled. Is it Spring yet?

Rod Deacey

Just wanted to wish Rod a Happy Birthday, 70 laps around the Sun, which is really hard to believe looking at the man. We had fun yesterday afternoon celebrating at Brewer’s Alley along with a roomful of songwriters, musicians, and poets, all gathered to pay tribute to Rod for both his art and his service to the art community. Well deserved!

Frederick Coffee Co.

Thanks to all for coming out to the show, it was a really nice afternoon! It was great to work with Dan Kenny again, and thanks to Todd Walker for hosting!

New Deal Cafe

Thanks to all who attended last night! And thanks for putting up with my craggy voice all night, singing with a cold … Special thanks to wonderful singer/songwriter Lynn Hollyfield for joining me, and to Erin Lewis (piano) and Michael Kerr (bass viol) for lending their considerable talents! And thanks to everyone at New Deal for supporting the music and arts!
