It's a spectacular spring morning here in upstate New York, and I'm just back from a fantastic weekend in the Boston area. As you can imagine, it was unsettling to head that way last Friday, but the locations of my workshop and concert (Worcester and Concord) were not part of the lockdown and were functioning normally. Then, of course, the manhunt ended Friday night, which brought so much relief and gratitude...and my events on Saturday were a real treat. In Concord I played in a beautiful living room to a warm and wonderful audience of about 40 people, plus a puppy who was very curious about my cajon drum--she circled around me, not sure whether to run away or pounce, while I played "Sycamore Tree."


I do love house concerts and would like to incorporate them more often into my travels... If you're inspired by the idea of inviting friends over for an evening of music in your home, here's a simple guide to organizing an event like this.


In any case, now I'm wrapping up the creative writing class I teach at Syracuse University, and gearing up for a big show with the trio on Saturday 4/27 at the Steeple Coffeehouse in my hometown of Fayetteville. We'll be unveiling some new songs, and saxophonist and bassist Jason Fridley will be sitting in on a few songs. Can't wait!


I'll be spending a good chunk of May in the U.K. (!), then coming home for a summer that includes several outdoor performances with the trio. See the calendar for details.  


Happy spring, thanks for staying tuned, and hope to see you out and about.
