Post Kerrville Texas gigs!

Have been having a wonderfilled time in Texas. It's still real dry but there is some sprinkling going on today and the air is mistymoisty and water is falling from the sky. They need lots here so send it thisaways if you have too much.

Here's a shot from last night's concert at Artz in Austin.  I've been playing with these folks for a looong time. That's jim Hancock on the left playing his magical mandolin and Carolyn Norulak on the right, fluting it up on "Darkness Comes". Always feels like coming home seeing and playing with friends from long ago.

Here's the poster for the upcoming Father's Day concert at Jovita's on Sunday Juneteenth post fest. The rest of the updated schedule follows. I'll be out at the Crow's Nest in Quiet Valley for the next few weeks.

Join the special anniversary year festivities. I've been to more than 30 of em and will be out there the whole time again, most nights up 'til early singing and pickin at the Crow's Nest. I host the Ballad Tree, Sunday June 12 at 3 pm on Chapel Hill so come share a tune. There's a new CD of campfire recordings this year: Songharvest 2011 available too at Staff Rekerrds and Mainstage merch area.

I'm sharing the evening with the luminous musicbeing of world traveler Amy Annelle and the beatnik jazz of Ike Eichenberg. Haven't played here for a couple years. We each will do a set and Ike will sit in with me (and possibly others) too.

Our annual Father's Day concert (perhaps the 10th or 11th year) with the one and only Robert Vignaud on bass and special guests. The last time here was a blast. A fine sound system, plenty of room, all ages welcome, Tex-Mex food and libations!
