Hope all is well, everyone. I’m currently in the midst of a fall tour with Saint Anyway that’s conveniently taking us through precisely the parts of New England that one might want to visit the most in mid-October. We’re right at that perfect time of the season where everything’s starting to look like this:
The fall has been busy in all sorts of unusual ways. For one thing I gave a talk at Harvard last week, which went much less disastrously than expected. I’ve been playing a lot, primarily around New England (though you’ll notice a few exceptional shows in Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin and the like at the end of this month), both solo and in some really fun collaborations. I had the privilege of working with a spoken-word artist and some 100-year-old landscape photos on glass slides in a presentation at the RISD Museum last month, and have been performing with 90 Mile Portage, a joint project I’m undertaking with singer-songwriter Jamie Kallestad. These shows tend to be a cool mixture of his music and mine, along with some things we’ve worked up together. As you’ll see on the performances page, we’ll be playing several of them together in MA, VT, and ME in the coming weeks.
Primarily through, I’ve been doing a lot of recording. There will almost certainly be a new follow-up to Yankee Division available next year, and maybe even a small batch of other new material much sooner than that. Watch this space for details.
In the meantime though, come to a concert! I’m playing a lot between now and the end of the year, and I hope you can make it out to one of these shows. For starters, you can catch SA this week in Brattleboro, Turner’s Falls, Great Barrington, Burlington, Montpelier, or Cambridge.
