    A fun open mic night at Blue Bus Music in Ridgefield, CT; nice to play in a room full of guitars. Jazz giant Dana Scofidio will likely join the festivities for two songs.

    Hyde Park, NY, US | 3:00pm

    Private Show: The Hyde Park Library Open Mic has a wonderful gathering in a small annex--perfect for an intimate show. I'll be the featured act, which means I'll get to play a good number of songs in one sitting, huzzah!

    Beacon, NY, US | 7:30pm

    Another great songwriter's showcase night at the Towne Crier featuring the larger-than-life Monty Delaney, songstress Janice Hardgrove, and yours truly. Depression priced at $7, you can't have a better time at a cheaper price!

    A house concert in Beekman with a lovely, small lake in the back. If you're in the area, it's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon in August.
