It's that time of the year suddenly somehow!

That means I'ma headin down to the Hill Country for another round of visits, QTN concerts, late night Tex Mex food and and the rolling hills of whatever is left of that most beloved virtual rurality. Sun, sky and southwestern birds will all be most welcome to these Northwet behind the ears.

This last year has been a long un and I'm bringing a new CD with me, the sound of photosynthesis. I barely had time to play a proper CD release anywhere last year due to other circumstances so I put this year's date on the disc and NOW is the time. Order this new music directly from me via brianQTN.bandcamp.com in either CD copy with fabulous art, poster and lyrics or as downloadable high res audio files. Stream and listen to whole songs too. If you'd rather send a check or money order and order that way, just drop me a line and I'll send you an address to mail to.

You can also get a copy directly from me at a live music gig (there are several listed below coming up soon so save the dates) or out at the 45th Kerrville Folk Festival where I will be as well.

Lotsa precarious whew whoa and what th-?! this last year and I am very much looking forward to seeing as many of my Texas peops as possible. If you'd like to host a QTN houseconcert or hire me for an evening of wordless guitar music during May or June, I'm open to all that too.

Once again, I am leaving my 200,000+ mile Toyota truck in Oregon and that means I am on the lookout for a street legal vehicle I may be able to borrow while I am in the Austin/San Marcos area. Of course, the endibilities are posstless....

Here are dates and figs where I'll be sangin soon for your raisin consciousness. Bulletins as they occur, as they say and more will be added soon. Updates on my newspage QTNRG.blogspot.com
