New York City, Black Mountain, NC, and other news

Thought I'd let folks know what's coming up in the next little while.

Straightaway Cafe in Black Mountain, NC - Looking forward to this Saturday, October 10, 6-9pm, playing this cool little place in Black Mountain, NC (about 5 miles from downtown Black Mountain on Highway 9). Map and details on my calendar.

The Joe's Cafe project with Rupert Wates in New York City - My friend and fellow songwriter Rupert Wates  has invited me to be part of his unique album project entitled "Joe's Cafe."  The album features songs Rupert has written based on true stories. Rupert has asked me and several other artists each to perform the lead vocal on an individual track with the idea that every singer has a story to tell, and we've all gathered 'round a table at Joe's Cafe to tell them.

We'll be recording the album in New York in early February. On Wednesday, December 2, Rupert's collective of artists (including me) will be performing parts of the forthcoming album live in Manhattan at The Metropolitan Room. Shortly I'll be announcing additional shows along the highways between Western North Carolina and New York City in December and February on the dates surrounding the "Joe's Cafe" performance and recording. (Read the story behind the Metropolitan Room.)

So I'm still at it despite a certain announcement that circulated about a month ago, inspired by economic angst.

I hope our paths cross soon!
