FALL TOUR, 50 DATES IN 17 STATES! I’m a little past the midpoint in the tour now. The whole trip’s been a blast so far; the highlights so far had to be Chan’s in Woonsocket RI, The Mineral Point Opera House in Mineral Point WI, and the Kewanna Fall Festival in Kewanna IN. Last weekend, my set with Taildragger at the King Biscuit Blues Festival was a blast. Now I’m working my way West to LA with dates in Albuquerque, Phoenix, and Tucson. I’ll be in the LA area from 10.17 through 10.23 and wrap up 8 weeks on the road by 10.25. See you on the road!
Critics and DJs are loving “Neoprene Fedora”, my latest CD, which is currently available on CD Baby, Bluebeat Music and Bear Family, and at my shows. It’s 70+ minutes of music, is chock full of original tunes and exciting guest appearances as well. It was recorded at Greaseland studios, and features Kid Andersen on guitar, keyboards, baritone guitar and bass; Aki Kumar on harp, percussion and vocals; Bob Welsh on guitar and piano; June Core and Stephen Dougherty on drums; Vance Ehlers and Chris Matheos on bass; Nancy Wright on sax; Billy Wilson on rub board, and Steve Willis on accordion.
