Things Are Starting Up Again

You may have read on my Home page or one of the other pages that I am spending a lot of time bringing  my music to you on line - in live streaming videos and on demand performance and mini-concert videos ( which I'm in the process of developing and will be launching soon), as well as streaming music plays on line (available on Spotify now [link at bottom of page]).   While  that remains as part of my plan, I am so happy to be able to say that now, with live performances coming back after covid,  I'm performing in person once again!!! 

So, in the next section, you'll see where I'll be performing over the next several months.  Keep checking back as that is sure to expand and grow as venues and festivals resume booking. 

In addition to booking "traditional" live performances at venues and festivals, I'm looking at doing "alternative" live performances.   I am still planning on  developing a series of  house concerts, and have lined some of those up locally  starting in July and running into the winter.  But that will take a while since I need to "link" several of them within a days driving distance of each other to make them viable.   So in addition to those, I'm also working on developing a few "pop-up" type performances where I'll find an unconventional place to play, promote a performance there, and play live...Places might be: a park, an unused bandshell, maybe even a campground or, hey, a truck stop or a seldom used train station ...who knows...Stay tuned.

As soon as the on line concert performances and on demand videos and concerts are up and running, you will be able to see them by clicking on the Live Streams & Video tab /live-streams-on-demand-videos on this site and selecting what you'd like to see.

And, if you'd like to get notified of any of these as they come up, subscribe to my email list at the bottom of my Home page /home and you'll hear about them as soon as they are scheduled or made available.

Beyond that, I'll continue to book performances at listening room type venues and festivals from time to time, and those will be listed here, once those become possible again.

Prior Performances - 2021

This past summer, after the Covid lockdown "all clear" I  starting up at getting booked for live performances  .Here's where I performed prior to now: 

July and August, 2021, various nearly spontaneous dates a few times a month,  usually on Saturdays or Sundays, starting around noon and going until I don't want to anymore;   -  Church Street Marketplace, Burlington, VT...Busking on the street, a couple of times a month (because I can't wait until September to play live again) and because I love the challenge of trying to get people who are not there to hear or see you and who are in a hurry to get somewhere else to stop and listen to your songs - playing live on the street with an open guitar case - originals and covers - anywhere from 45 minute to almost 2 hour "sets".
