Working on the new album!
Minneapolis, MN

I haven't been scheduling many gigs for the last quarter of 2013 - I'm working hard on my new album.

The Coffee House Tour
Back in the saddle! - 7pm (mostly)
Price: No cover (usually)

I haven't been playing any gigs so far in 2012. I'm not sure why. It feels right to play small venues - coffee houses, wine bars, house concerts for a while until I build up my chops and confidence again. Also to try out new songs - I have a boatload of new songs and I want to see which ones go over well, and which ones I should maybe include on a new CD. These kinds of venues offer low pressure, artistic freedom, and there are always at least a few people who are active listeners!

Jim Walsh, aka The Mad Ripple, hosts a weekly, wild, wingding of a songwriter showcase - he's been doing it for years, and his guests on any particular night might include musicians you'd pay multo dollars to see live. Jim is a much-published and nationally respected music writer and critic.

Since January 2011 these have been at The Aster Cafe, right on the river across from downtown Minneapolis in St Anthony Main.  Once you've seen one of these hootenannys, you'll be back for more! There are usually 4-6 singers on stage, taking turns to play songs, with lots of jamming and singing  help from the others. Every time I go, it inspires me to get back home and write a new song. Man, I'm really looking forward to this one!
