With Korby Lenker
If you are wondering whether this show is worth it...it is. Korby is one of my favorite folkies and you'll be floored. I've been writing a song a week since September and this will be the debut for all but two of them. I am very very excited to share these with you.
I'll be performing two sets for two seatings. Locally sourced meals and a curated selection of wines.
I am happy to bring my Strategy & Tactics workshop to Studio G in Harrodsburg KY.
This workshop is for active beginning or advanced writers. It is a 2 hour distillation of a decades worth of design, collaboration, development, and personal practice as a teaching writer and artist in my community. I'll be introducing and modeling some useful tools, tricks, and tips to help tilt the cup of fortune your way as a lifelong writer. Every participant will leave with an enriched and renewed personal discipline.
I'm doing a solo set to kick of the Annual Duncan and Porter House Christmas Party.
This is a solo acoustic show with limited seating. Call 859-734-4394 to reserve a ticket
A full night of songs and poetry.
Back in the Eastern Hills of Pittsburgh there is a barn that was built the year Darwin began his expedition across the Pacific and also the year sandpaper was invented. As one of the few venues listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Morrow Barn is a charming little room that attracts a fine group of folks who like songs. BYOB, with coffee and tea provided, the Penn Hebron Songwriter Series is a hidden little gem for song lovers and writers alike.
Its the best of Pittsburgh's Bluecollar-mericana songwriters sharing the stage with a mix of original songs inspired by and covers in tribute to the sign-painting, train hopping, fascist-killing-machine wielding, godfather of the dirt poor hell-raising songwriter. No guitars valued over 250$ are allowed in the building,

Pre show for Holy Ghost Tent Revival.
Its all been tracked, mixed, and mastered. The artwork is done. The paperwork has been filed. Now it is time to give it a listen and send it into the world! Come celebrate the completion of "Farewell Mountain." I'll be joined for a live performance by collaborators Jeff Berman on drums and lap dulcimer and Sam Harris on bass. Please bring a chair or blanket, bug spray, and maybe a beverage of choice. We will be making music from 9 until 11 when the noise curfew is up.
There will be some snacky foods and some beverages available. This is an all ages event with a lightly suggested donation of 5$-20$. Weather permitting, we will do some singing around the fire into the night.
Parking will be available on Hawethorne Street and Fairfield St. There is limited on-site parking for those with special needs.
To be clear and to avoid any "day of" disappointments this day is a celebration of the completion of a long running recording project. I will be doing a small private release of the album digitally accessible to those who are invited to this event. PR copies should arrive in the mail by the end of June. I hope to do a local fall release of the printed album with full band performances and a local PR push in the Fall. Thanks for your support! Hope to see you at the party.
