So, my buddies in The Mavericks played in Bristol the other night……..at 4pm I had decided that I wasn’t going to trek over to see them when I heard from Sean Snook, so I hit the road immediately and took in the show. So many memories of Colston Hall……opening for The Mavericks about 10 years ago now. It was a great night.
I would say the nights that Paul, Robert, Al Perkins, Mike McAdam and I spent as the Roadtrippers were some of the most fantastic nights we ever had in the 6 years we toured the world. Truly special place.
On thursday, May 21st I’ll return with guitar in hand to play The Tunnels. Sadly, it seems that The Polish Club is to be no more, so after much discussion we decided that The Tunnels set up with chairs to be a seated show would be the best venue for the show.
I’ve made twenty 10 pound tickets available as “Early Bird Discount Tickets” and they will be available until midnight on Sunday, March 9th. I expect them to go quickly, so grab yours.
Sean Snook will be joining me on guitar, and probably Johnny McKinnon on keys, but I’m confirming that.
“Some Comfort” from the latest cd…………
It felt good to get out and sing some songs again last month in Glasgow…………so, I’ve booked Brighton and now Edinburgh.

UPDATE-I’ve made 10 tickets available until midnight tonight (Sun, 8th) at the early bird price! Grab yours! So, last year I was approached to play a new venue in the Brighton/Hove area. I agreed and it turned out to be one of my favorite venues in the UK. The Brunswick Pub is a beautiful old […]
I need to get out there and make some music. It is a healing thing. I need that. So, I’m going to Glasgow, Scotland where the people never fail to lift my spirits. The Glad Cafe is one of my favorite venues, too. So, Friday, Feb. 20th……..there are now about 30 tickets left, so get […]
Finding the words is hard……..especially when it is so new. I loved Dad very much, and it has been a difficult thing to see him pass on to the next journey. I’ll miss him.

UPDATE–as we had hoped……the studio has been saved by conservationist Aubrey Preston!!!! Great work Nashville!!!!!

This is what is happening right now to Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A. RCA Studio A was literally the epicenter […]

I’m writing this from Kilkenny, Ireland……midway through the Irish tour. Tonight, Clive Barnes and I play in Kildare, which is near Dublin. This has been the best Irish tour……largely, because I took a chance and hired Clive after watching 30 seconds of his appearance on the Irish TV show, Other Voices. Clive is a top […]

So, last year was one of the toughest years I’ve ever experienced…….broke three ribs………It got me down. The economy sucks. Times are not easy. The only way I know to deal with that is to pick myself up and get out on the road. That is what I’m determined to do. In May, I have […]

I kind of miss the old days when I’d put together a multi-point email that would touch on everything that was going on. I’m going to try to get back to that. So, tomorrow I will take a drive down to the Brighton/Hove area. I will try to beat the traffic. I’m playing what looks […]
