The more or less back-to-back solo and Saint Anyway tours of the last couple months were great successes and lots of fun. Among other things, I got to hang out at the headwaters of the Mississippi River, contract a hideous flu in San Francisco, climb an escarpment (and participate in a truly awesome series of house concerts) in Ontario, drink fresh maple syrup from the bottle in Vermont, and bask again in the beery, cheesy, isthmus-y glory of Madison, WI. Thanks again to everybody who came out to any of those shows, and even more to all the people who hosted me as I staggered through their towns. This whole itinerant thing I’ve found myself doing can be stressful at times, but certainly its greatest perk comes from meeting and staying in touch with people along the way.
I’m in Minnesota again right now, and I’ll be heading out to Wyoming for a few days after that, but then I’m returning to the northeast at the end of this month to play several solo shows around New England and in New York. Particularly of note: on June 1st, I’ll be returning to one of my favorite local venues, the great Lily Pad of Inman Square, Cambridge, to open for Heather Maloney. It’s my first solo show in the Boston area since I left to go on tour in March, and I hope that many of you can make it out to see! Details, as usual, can be found by clicking on the accordion at the top of this page.
Lots of other plans are in the works as well: I’ve been generating a big pile of new music and I’ll be devoting a lot of time this summer to paring it down and getting some of it recorded. I’m also working with a booking agency for the first time to set up a big national tour in late summer, for which I hope to announce dates relatively soon. Keep checking back here for details.
Thanks again for all your support on this spring’s tours! Hope to see you again soon.
PS. After a set I played in Montreal, a local music blog reviewed an in-progress, untitled song I road-tested there. Check it out here, complete with video.
