Whew! Apparently the year 2020 just...didn't exist? At least, it felt that way. At least, we kind of wish it didn't, am I right?
One thing that did happen in 2020, and which I completely neglected to post to my website (promotion fail!) was a Zoom production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream put on by GreenStage, in which I played Titania's First Fairy. There are two pieces of good news: one is that the production was captured and is available to view on YouTube; and the other is that we are reviving last year's production this year, but live! Shakespeare In The Actual Park!
The show opens July 9th and will be playing in various parks all around the Seattle area through August 14th. Please come out and see some live theatre!

Yes, it's true, I'll be playing again at the Harp Tent at the Skagit Valley Highland Games! Same bat time, same bat channel...1:05 pm on Saturday, July 14th. (I think this time the bagpipe demo doesn't start until 1:30, but WE'LL BE READY FOR THEM.) Come on down, hear some music, watch some sheepdogs doing their thing, watch burly dudes in kilts throw things! Fun times. (For more info on the Games--like, you know, where they are, etc.--visit the Celtic Arts Foundation's website.)
I'm thrilled to have been invited to open for Peter and Caleb Spencer at Egan's Ballard Jam House on May 12th, 2018! I'll be playing a 25-minute set starting at 9pm. Peter Spencer is a longtime colleague of mine and a fantastic singer/songwriter/guitarist. Come on down and check it out!
(I'm not sure how much the cover is going to be...$10-12 or so, probably?)

Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Café
8310 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA
Hi again folks! I'm happy to say that I'll be performing at the wonderful Couth Buzzard Books (a lovely cafe and bookstore in Greenwood) on February 10th, 2017. I always enjoy playing at the Couth, and not just because the stage is right in front of the sci-fi section. ;) It's a wonderful, warm, informal atmosphere and you can drink coffee and eat treats (or browse books) while you're listening. Thanks very much to the Pacific Northwest Folklore Society for including me in their Coffeehouse Concert series! Here are the details:

I'm thrilled to be returning to one of my favorite Seattle venues for an intimate coffeehouse concert! The Couth Buzzard is a welcoming and relaxed venue, where you can sip beverages, nibble snacks and browse their wonderful bookshelves as you enjoy the music. $10 suggested donation.
Whew! I've got to admit I've been hibernating a bit in the Seattle winter chill. More to come!
(Meanwhile, enjoy this duet from August 9th, 2012, when the lovely and talented Colleen Raney invited me to get up and sing with her at her Fremont Abbey show. Thanks, Colleen!)
