September Shows in CT, NH

Happy almost Fall!  I'm back in MA after spending August in Northern CA, where sadly the air is thick with smoke from all the fires and the rivers are super low from drought.  And dire predictions that this is the new M.O. for future summer weather.  Global warming/climate change IS happening, Mr Trump!  (No, as far as I know, he has not yet signed up for these mailings)

But despite a fairly constant sense of impending environmental doom, I still managed to have a blast visiting my friends and family in my beautiful hometown Arcata!  AND, I had such a great time hosting my New England pals, the Gaslight Tinkers, at the Arcata Playhouse.  They backed me for my set, I sang with them on a few of their tunes, and we both collaborated with some excellent local musicians.  Great venue, great audience, really fun night!  I also just need to officially thank my parents here:  they were my backbone in setting up the whole event.  Thanks, Mom and Dad!

I've got a couple of cool shows happening this September.  I've been chosen as a finalist for the CT Folk Festival Songwriting Competition on Saturday morning September 12 at Edgerton Park in New Haven, CT.  As a bonus, at 1:30 PM I'll be doing a little show at the Meier Hot Sauce Booth.  This is a REALLY sweet little festival.  Its completely free (donations highly suggested!) and features a bunch of superb well-known, plus up and coming, regional acts.  If you're in CT and free that day, I highly recommend checking it out.    Also, I'm looking forward to doing a house concert at the legendary  Highlands Inn in Bethlehem, NH on Saturday, September 26.
