2.  At the Rockwood Solo
     with the Nine/Monday, Dec. 8

My second show at the Rockwood with the songwriting collective based in D.C. and known as The Nine.  I'll be doing a small superset of songs (a short subset? a solo singfest?) and would love it if you'd stop by. The first show I did with this talented group was deliciously musical fun.

3.  WOOL&GRANT/Dec. 18/Songs of Greenwich Village

Bev Grant and I (a.k.a. WOOL&GRANT) will rock you at Songs of Greenwich Village at Choga.  We bring our unlikely but affable combination of politically progressive and sensitive singer/songwriter songs to the feature set at Ed and Greta Tristram's series at the unlikely but lovable location of a Korean/Japanese restaurant next door and upstairs from the Bitter End.  It all has to be seen and heard to be believed. You can sign up and take a turn at the open mike that follows our set if you so desire. 
Songs of Greenwich Village at Choga

Thursday, December 18, 8 pm
