The Glasgow show is now sold out……well, sort of…….someone has asked if they can exchange their Glasgow tickets for the Edinburgh show that I just confirmed last night. No problem, so I will open up two tickets for Glasgow.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to an acoustic run with Scott on steel. Tickets to the Edinburgh show are now on sale. There will be limited seating, so get your tickets early.
Thanks to all who came out for the Endangered Liver’s part of the tour. So, the Scotland run looks like this:
Friday, March 28th-Glasgow, Scotland-Glad Cafe-SOLD OUT (two tickets will open up briefly) Get last two tickets!
Saturday, March 29th-open at moment, but am confirming a show in the north of Scotland.
Sunday, March 30th-Edinburgh, Scotland-The Village Reserve Your Spot Now!
I’m booking house concerts at the moment as well, so no matter where you are……get in touch. We can sort it out.
“Some Comfort” from the new cd……..
The Scottish leg of the UK tour ended with the walls in Ettrickbridge Village Hall sweating……..the folks danced from the first number and kept dancing to the end. Probably one of my favorite gigs ever…….seriously.
Next Friday night we roll into Bristol for the last UK date. If you are in the mood for traveling a bit……this is one of the best shows to come to in the UK. There are a few tickets available. Bring some friends and come if you can? Buy Tickets Now! Most of ya’ll know i’m a huge Jackson Browne fan……………and also a huge David Lindley fan. I found this video of Jackson and Lindley on youtube……..pretty amazing stuff. The kid steel player in the Endangered Livers is coming dangerously close to this territory……..25 years old and a real student of Lindley/Perkins/Leisz.
He nails the solo in “She Don’t Wake Me Up”………which is Al Perkins copying Greg Leisz note for note…..and Leisz is doing his best Lindley!
I’ll play this on Friday night in Kinross………….
This Jackson Browne tune led me to hiring Russ Kunkel to play on “Fear Nothing” when I was 23. A true gentleman………we flew together to Nashville and recorded in the Castle in Franklin……Russ on drums, Larry Knechtel from Bread on piano, Dan Dugmore on guitar……pretty incredible experience. This song led me to Kunkel.
There are not many players that play like Lindley, right? The last two shows of the tour are Bristol and Glasgow. Here is the info:
Friday, Feb. 28th-Bristol, England-The Polish Club-Get Your Tickets
Friday, March 28th-Glasgow, Scotland-The Glad Cafe-NEARLY SOLD OUT-20 tickets left! Get Your Tickets
Facebook is powerful……please share this post to your wall to tip your friends off about the tour! Thanks!
It is Valentine’s Day this Friday, Feb. 14th. I know……groans. If you don’t already have plans……I’m playing in Kinross, Scotland at a beautiful resort hotel called The Green Hotel. They have great pub grub, and also a fine dining restaurant on site. The venue rocks. The Endangered Livers will accompany. So, the show starts at […]
We are rolling to Newcastle for the show tonight at Cluny 2. I”m teaching the kid bass player Jackson Browne’s version of “Take It Easy”…….my favorite version of the song……… The kid steel player will be doing his best David Lindley on “She Don’t Wake Me Up”……I reckon my own ode to Jackson Browne. If […]
In my humble opinion, the Cluny 2 is the best venue in the UK. I’ll be there this Friday night with the Endangered Livers. I’m more excited about this band than I have been in years……it comes complete with a young kid steel player that learned the songs like the records……..plays Al Perkin’s parts with […]
I’ll hit the road with the Endangered Livers this Thursday for a show at a great club called The Musician in Leicester. I’ve had quite a few emails saying “are you playing in Nottingham this time?”…………….sadly, no, Leicester is as close as we will get, but please come to The Musician……great club, with a great […]
I’ll be touring with the Endangered Livers in February in the UK. I just confirmed another gig in Scotland on this tour in Ettrickbridge in the Scottish Borders. This is a great little destination…..full of friendly locals. Come on down from Edinburgh or Glasgow! I can’t wait to get back on the road with these […]
The final few hours of the “Giving Wings to Some Comfort” Indiegogo campaign are almost up. I’m at 29% funded. I’ve sold some cds, some house concerts have been booked, and sold some digital downloads. I’m thankful for every contribution. Tonight, at 10pm London time (4pm Central US time), I’ll be live webcasting from my […]
In 1994, I toured 70 US cities with Peter Himmelman. He is the most brilliant live performer I’ve ever seen. He has the quick wit and spontaneity of Robin Williams, and his music has strains of Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, and Bob Dylan. He’s also Bob Dylan’s son-in-law, but that has no real consequence in […]
I’m live webcasting from my dining room tonight at 9:35pm (sunday)……….which is at the time of this writing in 25 minutes. This will be a pajama-wearing, Santa hat-wearing, wine sipping, laidback webcast. I’ll sing some old songs, some new ones, and we can chat. I highly recommend you getting into the chat room. It can […]
Today, I finally pushed the button on a crowd-funding campaign with Indiegogo.com to help put “Some Comfort” out into the world. For years since I left A&M Records I’ve released cds independently and have never properly put them out……..other than out of the back of my truck…….so, today, I’m trying to change that. “Some Comfort” […]

I cannot believe it is November. When I was a kid it seemed like time moved SO slowly…….and now time is flying by…….please slow down. Anyway, i’ll be live webcasting from my dining room this Saturday, Nov. 9th at 10pm London time…….that is 5pm Eastern, 4pm Central, etc, etc. I’ll have some wine and will […]
Hey ya’ll…….it has been awhile. I’ve been living life and trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life. After breaking three ribs in February……trying to recover…..getting out of shape….I decided either i’m going to go up, or i’m going down. I decided to go up. I’ve been hitting […]

There is a a very special fire sale of the tickets for the next 5 days, so if you know that you are […]
House concerts are awesome. I’m booking up the rest of 2013 into 2014 in the next few days. In today’s world…..house concerts are the way to go. Would you like to host one? Just email me and we can make it happen. I will go anywhere in the world to play a house concert……..i’ve been […]

Get your tickets and please tell your Dutch friends to come out and join us! I”ll be […]
We have two UK gigs remaining on this tour……tonight in Liverpool and tomorrow in Silsoe (nearest gig to London). This tour has been a revelation to me……….the new Endangered Livers are totally rocking. The entrance of the steel guitar/lap steel/12 string back into the mix is welcome. Rolling into Liverpool now….looking forward to playing the […]
Just made King Tut’s for load in for our show here in Glasgow tonight. Tomorrow we roll into Liverpool for the hometown gig for Etienne, Scott, and Jonathan. We are playing a place called the Scandanavian Church……or Nordic Church, or Swedish Seaman’s Church….depending on who you talk to! I would suggest a daytrip to do […]
We will be broadcasting from a farm in the wilds of the Scottish Borders at 9:15pm London time tonight. We had a night off before our show at King Tuts in Glasgow tomorrow night, and figured we would have some haggis, some local whiskey, and play some music for ya’ll. Last night we played an […]
