I'm just getting back from my annual Texas tour which included shows around central Texas and the 43rd Kerrville Folk Festival. Lotsa great folks and tunes along the way.
For the second year, Dick Weissman and I get to share an evening of string-picking and song-singing to celebrate his new book and my solar return next Saturday June 28 at Portland's legendary Artichoke Music and Sunday June 29 at the most wonderful bookstore in Eugene, Tsunami Books.
This unique musical evening will be a treat. If you'd like to see Dick with his old group, The Journeymen, from the pre-Beatle days of the Great Folk Scare, look them up on youtube. The other guys in the group were John Phillips (Mamas and Papas) and Scott McKenzie (If You're Going to San Francisco) and Dick is the surviving member.
This year will be my 26th year of playing the Oregon Country Fair and I'll be sending my Fair schedule soon.
See you all suddenly!

Oh what a most splendicious and very full time at the Quiet Valley Ranch and this year's Folk Festival! Many songs were exchanged, many new stories told and plenty of favourite songs, lotsa late nights at Crow's Nest and time with amazing beings. This late night amazing picture from a Crow's campfire was snapped by Neale Eckstein. The music is there too but you woulda had to been there; it remains etheric, intrinsic and morphogenic.
With less than a week of Texas left in me for this year, here are a few more places you can come hear QTN songs. Haven't slept much the last month but I'm-a rarin to go and looking forward to all these fun gigs.
With me this year is a new CD culled from 25+ years of live performances with the QBand at Oregon Country Fair, called QTNTFYOCF. The sale of it is helping fund mixes and masterieng for a new QTN record I've been recording this winter and am mixing at the end of this month. Every little bit helps to make this new one come through.
See you soon at one of these.
