It was a fantastic month for us. Rockwood Music Hall, always home to us. The trio experiment was a joy, and guest songs from Angela Reed, Jeremy Beck, and Shannon Conley, plus my buddy Eugene Ruffolo sharing vocals with me on a new duet. I premiered a new song at the piano written on my friend Rob’s 1910 Spinet. A delight.
Then it was off to DC to play 3 nights opening for our friends to Bacon Brothers at my hometown venue, the grand Birchmere, where Americana thrives. Such a beautiful weekend with fans, friends, and family. The boys offered us an extra night up in Albany at the Egg, NY State Theater. I can only say that folks up there are earnest and fun loving, and I had a great visit after our set talking music and local gossip and signing CDs. What a nurturing scene.
It’s time for some writing, before going to Europe for some masterclasses in Rome at the end of August. Then 3 days in Dublin to soak up some crooning before starting fall gigs and recording new music. Have a great month, one and all, and thank you for staying engaged.
