Hello . It's December and I am
in Florida, getting lots of time with our daughters and their families. It's
really nice that the kids are all relatively close to each other and that the grandkids
spend a lot of time together. They are growing way too quickly. I'm looking forward
to having them come to the mountains in the summer once they are a bit older.
Still no dates in Tampa/St.
Pete or St. Augustine, but I have been working the phones and sending out press
kits and hopefully something will break soon. Meanwhile, I have been performing
in the central Florida area and getting to see lots of old friends from past performances
and making many new ones.
Songwriter, Doug Matern, has been working with
me on some new original material. Doug is a prolific songwriter and has generously
allowed me to work with his songs as if they were my own. One of these, "Tried
So Hard" is available for streaming on my ReverbNation website.
If you can get out to one
of my live shows, be sure to say hello. My complete schedule is listed below. Also,
you may want to visit my YouTube Channel for some videos from my concerts at the
John C. Campbell Folk School and appearances on the square in downtown Hayesville.
Just click on the icons below.
As always, I want to thank you for your love, friendship and support.
Please continue to send me your song suggestions as well as ideas for new venues

that Doc Holiday’s match-up of Paul J. Constantine, Jr. with Doug Matern’s
song was a stroke of genius. From the clear and crisp piano introduction to the
steel guitars, the robust sound of Paul’s voice comes through warm and soothing.
The listener can sense the emotion the lyrics describe as Paul pours his soul into

|"Dr. Paul, Your voice
has mellowed and gotten better over the years. I am blessed to have met you in the
early 80's when you played in Tampa. Your voice has the gift for sharing a story
that each of us can appreciate and understand. Here's to life and living each day
with passion, compassion, integrity and purpose! Here's to you and your family!
Your friend in this journey!"
