Hey Friends,

Thanks so much for a great night at the Christopher Street Coffeehouse!  That was the first time in my life I played a set of all new and unrecorded songs.  Except for the Hank Williams, which is not new or unrecorded, but new to me.  Reinvention, people.  It continues.

Catch up with me in three different places in the next three months.

I'll be playing a 20-minute set some time between 7:30 and 10:15, exact time TBD.  The enormously talented Terry Radigan hosts and sings and plays her own songs too.  She assembles a different crew of songwriters and players for each Roundup, and they are the cream of the NYC crop.  Well-known songwriters from music capitals beyond our fair city drop in to play from time to time too.  I'm extremely honored to be included in this crew.  The food and drinks are excellent.  (Hooked on 12th is located at the site of the former 12th Street Grill in Park Slope.)
