NEW RECORDINGS ON VIDEO
My next-door neighbor, Ben Gradison of D-Street Studios, kindly invited me in a couple of weekends ago to do some live recording, and he just posted a YouTube video of me performing my tune "Might As Well" along with a cover of one of my favorite Eels songs, "It's A Motherf***er," the latter of which shows how certain words have no substitute when it comes to expressing a certain idea.
JULY 9TH IN BLACK MOUNTAIN
Little break in the action on live performances - next one is July 9th, 7pm, at Monte Vista Hotel in Black Mountain, NC.
HOSTING OPEN MIC AT WHITE HORSE EVERY TUESDAY
However, every Tuesday (including this Tuesday, June 28th) I'll perform and host Open Mic at White Horse Black Mountain. Signup at 8pm, music starts at 8:45pm. Follows Irish Music Jam there from 6:30-8:30pm. All free admission. Last week we had some great performers on the stage including David Russell from Yanceyville, VA (passing through on a tour), Russian folk singer Jamuna, Kim (Hughes)* with co-singers Ronnie and Janine, Bob Hinkle*, Sandy and Pete, Warren Koontz (all the way from Rochester, NY), and Josh W. -- a fine evening of acoustic music and a lovely audience!
* Co-owners of White Horse (Thanks to Bob and Kim for providing such a fabulous venue for this!)
ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS I'VE ATTENDED IN AGES
Also - This past Saturday, I was off so I decided to check out my friends The Cheeksters and The Zealots at MoDaddy's in downtown Asheville - one of the best shows I've attended in a long, long time! The Cheeksters played many tunes from their just released new album (great stuff on the record and in the live performance on Saturday) and some faves from previous records to an enamoured crowd, and George McDonald Terry absolutely ROCKED with fellow Zealots Aaron Price and Caleb Beissert. Couldn't leave until the last note was played at around 2am! Check 'em out!
