Thanks for a Great Year
As we approach a new year, I want to thank each of you for your support. 2008 was a year well worth remembering, including the release of a third CD and a reunion with a dear friend. The best musical times of the year were those occasions when I got to join friends on stage and in living room and on back porch to make music. It is always fun to hook up with Ye Olde Folkz Trio (with Greg O'Haver and Eli Beth), Roots and Branches, and Patchwork (Rick Garrett and Holly Smith) for musical shenanigans of all sorts. In addition, this year also brought the opportunity to appear on Patchwork's debut CD.
Looking ahead to '09, the year kicks off with returns to some favorite haunts.
- On Friday, January 9, I'll be back at The Lighthouse Cafe in Alexandria, playing from 6:00 until 7:00. Deanne Carroll and the folks at the Lighthouse are always a gracious and fun-loving group of folks.
- Then on the following Friday, January 16, Patchwork and I will load up the truck and head to Battleground for a gig at the Battleground General Store. When the three of us get together, we never know what to expect. I always end up putting the set list aside and just going wherever the spirit leads us. One thing we know for sure, though. It may be unexpected, but it will be fun!
- On January 30, after the dawn of my second half century, it's back to The Bread Ladies in Greenfield. As many of you know, I love this place. Music at The Bread Ladies will start at 6:30. Enjoy some good food, and we'll get Rocky Raccoon and Five Pounds of Possum worked into the set list.
Thank you again for letting me share bits of music and life with you in 2008. I hope that your Christmas was indeed merry and that the new year will bring you great joy and hope.Blessings,
