Ridin the Midwest on an Equinox wind! UPDATE

Howdy folks!
Time for the booga booga of another meanderthal adventure as I head to the midwest for s series of gigs and visits. Here's the first blush of dates and slightly pruned raisin consciousness appearances for you to eschew and plan ahead for. The Great Bundance is upon us as the seasonal Turn turn turns and that means music, and the opportunity to celebrate the Great Awakening after the Great Asleepening. I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible and have a taste of another midwest autumn.

Here's the pertinent info for your refrigerators. Hope to see you here or there!


I play at 11:55 am on the stage and later on at 2:45 pm in the Kennicott Courtyard without a PA. Both are fun. I have played this fest for about 15 years. Music outdoors and food, gorgeous autumn day and nice folks!

The Grove National Historic Landmark is at 1421 Milwaukee Ave. Glenview, IL 60025 for Google map and their phone is 847.299.6096

It's a new coffeehouse in Crete not far from the old Teapots Café. I am doing two nights here this trip; this one wordless guitar music like the new album and November 11 here worded and singing.

  This is a gorgeous library concert space where Quad City people gather to warm hands and hearts. My fourth year here and always waylotsa fun and great cookies too. The one and only Chris Dunn opens the evening once again with his thoughtful wit and tuneage.

I played here a couple of years back with Vernon Tonges. It is a small all-ages venue that sounds good and is close to my new nephew Charlie's home so I'll get to see him too!

If you’d like to host a house concert with me, drop a line and we’ll figure out a good date. It’s easy and simple to host one and your friends and family will love having live music without a club scene attached. Bulletins as they occur.
