I’ll be pointing the van north on Friday night to drive to Campbeltown, Scotland for our show there on Saturday night. On Sunday we will head to one of my favourite places in the world……..the Gordon Arms Hotel in Yarrow, Scotland for a matinee show at 3pm.
This place in the world is simply stunning. It is perfect for a sunday drive and meal…….and you get me, Melvin Duffy, and Johnny Mackinnon as extra! Melvin plays steel with Squeeze, The Waterboys, etc, etc…….a real find.
So, please come join us this Sunday, March 12th at The Gordon Arms Hotel in Yarrow. Like I said, it is a 3pm show, so have a meal beforehand, or after……..I’ll be doing the same.
The Gordon Arms suffered a fire about a year and a half ago, and the owners have done an amazing job to save this gem and bring it back to life…….I respect anyone who really gives it their best shot. Let’s support them, because we are losing so many pubs and good venues around the world!
Ok, see you there. Reserve your spot…..it will sell out.
Time is moving quickly now. The days seem shorter. I’m trying to cram a bunch of stuff into the shrinking timeframe……..
Next week I’ll head to Scotland for a couple of shows…….both remote….awesome places to travel to…..Campbeltown, Scotland….home of the great Johnny MacKinnon, and The Gordon Arms Hotel in Yarrow.
The Yarrow show is a matinee on a sunday. The Gordon Arms serves lovely food, so I suggest Sunday lunch and then the show at 3pm, OR the show at 3pm and dinner afterward. Either way, it will be a lovely sunday getaway. Info below.
Sean Snook and Melvin Duffy will be traveling with me. Melvin plays steel for Squeeze, and many others….a legend, and you will remember Sean from two 50 States in 50 Days tours with me.
Right after Scotland I’ll headed to Nashville and the US…..keywords-Buddy and Bob, recording, Nashville, Texas, house concerts, documentary, BBC…….while stateside I’m open to house concerts, so if you want to host just let me know? March 14th-28th time period, and then again in April. Thoughts?
I’m now finished booking the Garry Tallent from the E Street Band tour…….i’ll be opening the tour, and steering the ship. I’m super excited about it. The tickets are on sale now, and a few of the shows are either sold out or nearing sell out, so get your tickets today!

Would you like to host a house concert in the coming months? 16 years ago when I started doing house concerts I would get some strange looks, especially from artists that were on the more traditional path. Now, it seems everyone wants to do them. Why? Because they are awesome. I bring a small sound […]
I guess I don’t listen to enough music anymore, but in my defense…….sometimes life gets in the way. Put iTunes on and am listening to some great stuff as I write this. Reminds me of why. I need to listen more. Anyway, I’ll be making some new music soon as well…….again, “life” sometimes gets in […]
One of my all-time favorite gigs is The Greys in Brighton. A lauded music venue that almost went the way of so many other venues around the world that put on live music……….but some folks stepped in to show their commitment to keeping it alive. I’ll be there on Monday, June 20th! It is a […]
So, I just booked an afternoon/dinner gig in Kenley, England at a lovely little OLD SCHOOL Italian place called Santini’s. Doors are at 4pm……..music starts at 4:30pm.

On the way up to play Scotland last month i stopped into The Junction Pub in Saint Helens, Merseyside for a meeting and meal with Stephen Manley.

On the eve of the mini-Scottish tour……I sit here with so much on my mind. The day Buddy Holly died was 57 years ago tonight. Dad passed away at 77 a couple of Decembers ago. I think a lot about death lately, and the fleeting time we have on this earth, and what it all […]
The first show of the mini-Scottish tour will begin next friday in Kinross, Scotland at the lovely Backstage at the Green Hotel.

So, i’m about to hit the road in a couple of weeks with two of my favorite musicians…..Scott Poley on steel and Johnny MacKinnon on piano and vocals. Scott completely nails Al Perkins’ steel parts from “2:30am” and Pettibone’s steel from “Another Long Story”……the kid put the time in to learn. It is a pleasure […]
