kevinscottishtourmay14So, 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 a few acoustic dates in the UK and Ireland. There is a certain beauty to stripping the songs down to just one man and a guitar………no band…….I like that at times. These dates I’ll have Scott Poley on steel (Scottish dates) and Clive Barnes on stringed things in Ireland. Both are amazing at what they do.
Please come out to one of the shows……..I have to be personally excited with what I’m hearing on stage or I would not leave the house, and the last trip to Scotland was really special. That is why I’m coming back so quickly. Scott nails the steel parts. See video below……..
So, here are the dates coming up. Tickets are on sale now. Glasgow sold out a month in advance last time, so grab your tickets.
Sunday, May 4th-Kenley, England-Santarini’s Restaurant-This show will be with Sean Snook. The ticket comes with a 3 course meal. We will play in between the courses. There is seating for 24 people total, so If you want to come……today is the day to book the tickets. Reserve Your Tickets!
Wednesday, May 7th-Glasgow, Scotland-The Glad Cafe-In my opinion, this is the best venue in Glasgow now. Last month’s show sold out a month in advance, and we arrived to a lovely crowd, and the owners are musicians, so they get it. Scott Poley will be there on steel and Johnny MacKinnon on piano. Don’t miss this. Book Your Tickets!
Friday, May 9th-Kinross, Scotland-Backstage at the Green Hotel-Another cool venue. Great hotel, great food with two restaurants…………book for the show and overnight stay? The february show was affected by snowfall that lasted just long enough to put about 50 people off coming to the show, so I thought it would be a good idea to come do a “makeup” show. Book Your Tickets!
It has been awhile since I toured Ireland…….I don’t think even toured there with “Some Comfort” in tow. I can’t wait…….especially with Clive Barnes on stringed things.
Thursday, May 15th-Dundalk, Ireland-The Spirit Store Get Your Tickets!
Friday, May 16th-Dublin, Ireland-Dublin Conservative Club-This is a private club that not many people know about. It is near Whelans. Get Your Tickets!
Sat, May 17th-Kilkenny, Ireland-The Hole in the Wall Get Your Tickets!
Tues, May 20th-Kildare, Ireland-Cunningham’s Bar Get Your Tickets!
Thurs, May 22nd-Belfast, Northern Ireland-The Errigle Inn Get Your Tickets!
Fri, May 23rd-Enniskillen, Northern Ireland-Blakes of the Hollow Get Your Tickets!
Sat, May 24th-Carndonagh, Ireland-Musician’s House-This is a house concert in Donegal. Reserve Your Spot!
Clive Barnes will be opening and then supporting me on stringed things. This is him on the Irish “Other Voices” TV program.
This is “The Greatest Love That Never Was” from the sold out Glasgow show in February…….I think Scott is bordering on channeling David Lindley……which is a hard thing to do. His playing put a tear in my eye when we played Kinross……literally.

I need your help in getting the word out about the tour! Please share this post to your Facebook wall to let your UK/Ireland friends know about the tour! Thank you!

The most brilliant live performer you may have never heard of-Peter Himmelman.

December 17, 2013

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 […]
