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.
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 to explore.
|"There is no doubt 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 the words."

|"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! "

the food trucks, etc. and we were so pleasantly surprised! Lots of families and
children, really good food and especially enjoyed the music played by Paul Constantine!"
