Beans in the Belfry

Thanks to all who came out last night, it was a fun evening. It’s like playing in the family room of my favorite old house in the country and it was a family affair last night. My son Luke surprised me and stopped in on his way back from N.J. to play a couple of songs and sounded real good.

Brewer’s Alley

Always a pleasure to play here. Good music from all and got to meet Jim Patton and Sherry Brokus from Austin, TX. I thought they sounded familiar, turns out they are Baltimore expatriates living the good life in Austin now. Thanks to all who came out!

Lynn Hollyfield Show

I’m backing up Lynn at her New Deal Cafe show on 10/30 along with Dave Abe (fiddle, mandolin), Carey Creed (keyboards, vocals), and Mary Gordon Hall (guitar, vocals). I’ll be doing a duet on three of my songs with Lynn and playing guitar on some of her songs. Carey and Mary Gordon are doing some of their own material as well. It’s always a privilege to play with Lynn. She is so supportive of the songwriting community and is such a talent on her own. Her new CD is nearing completion and she’ll be previewing some of the songs so come on out and say hello!

Frederick Coffee Co.

Thanks to Todd Walker and the Frederick Coffee Company for putting on a great showcase yesterday. Inspired performances from Sahffi and Mercedes Mill made it a memorable afternoon!

Epicure Cafe

Thanks to Ron Goad and Songwriters Association of Washington for putting on such a great showcase! The talent was awesome and the room was really cool. So good to see some good friends I’d not seen in a long while, and a real pleasure to make some new friends. 

New Deal Cafe

A wonderful crowd! Thanks to all for coming out. Special thanks to Frank Kayser for doing sound and to Tracy Faust for shooting video.

Brewer’s Alley

Thanks to Rod, Todd, and Ron for the kind words and for running a great show. Christie Lenee was awesome as always. This really is one of the finest venues for music and songwriters in the area.

Brewer’s Alley 7/8 postponed to 8/12

Apologies for any  inconvenience, had to postpone show to August 12. Thanks, Mike.

Frederick Coffee Company

Always a pleasure working with Todd Walker, who is so supportive of songwriters it blows my mind, and is an awesome guitarist in his own right. This is a really cool venue and I had the best panini sandwich ever!

Alexandria Arts Festival

Got to see my old friend Tracy Faust, one of the world’s truly talented sound men. Good food, nice people, good weather, who could ask for anything more! Thanks to all!
