Gigantic January! Iguana Fund Grant, SAW Award

Happy New Year!  I hope that your 2015 has gotten off to a great start.  Mine certainly has!  The first piece of good news came during the 2nd week of December when I found out that I and Piti Theatre, the theater company I write and perform for, have won a $2,000 grant from Club Passim's Iguana Fund!  We are so grateful and excited to start working on our new project which will be a CD of "greatest hits" from some of the shows we've done.  Stay tuned for more on that, plus our upcoming new show, Innocenzo, soon.  Thanks, Club Passim!

The second piece of great news came during the last hours of 2014 when I found out that my song, The Grumpy Time Club, co-written with Garret and Samara Sawyer, has won second place in the Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest.  Again, I am very grateful and excited!  The awards ceremony will be on January 25th down in Vienna, VA.  Thanks, SAW!

January is shaping up to be a big month of cool shows.  January 9-11th I'll be doing a "mini- tour" with Chris Scanlon down in the CT, NYC, and NJ area (for details, see below).  January 15th I'm back at the Iron Horse opening for my friend Carolyn Walker at the release party for her new CD, Incarnadine (details are below...and as always, if you're interested in tickets, I've got 'em cheap, so shoot me an email).   And lastly, I'm looking forward to performing at this year's Winter Amherst Live on January 17 at the Kirby Theater in Amherst, MA.  Amherst Live is a "live magazine" show, sort of a mash-up of Ted Talks, The Moth, and A Prairie Home Companion.  I'll be doing a few songs accompanied by the glorious Elizabeth Donahue. 

Looking forward to seeing you!
