I’ll be writing about our recent tour of Europe in several parts. This is part 6. My Summer Home in San Marino We arrived at the train station in Rimini at 3 PM and met with Francesca and Gianluca, part of the crew responsible for the show that night, and with our gear loaded into […]

I’ll be writing about our recent tour of Europe in several parts. This is part 5. Memorizing Mountains We arrived in Savoniero at 4 in the afternoon to find a crew of stagehands making their final adjustments to a rack of lights that hovered above a large stage. Savoniero is a small hamlet high in […]

I’ll be writing about our recent tour of Europe in several parts. This is part 4. Clouds and Fog The Huns were making their way across Italy, leaving behind them a trail of death and destruction. No town in their path was left untouched, no defender left alive. As word of their gruesome acts spread […]

I’ll be writing about our recent tour of Europe in several parts. This is part 3. Up In The Air, And Back Down Again It appeared in the sky every half hour, and it was so regular you could set your watch by it. The giant, perfectly spherical zeppelin, with its round basket of sightseers, […]

I’ll be writing about our recent tour of Europe in several parts. This is part 2. The Lonely Accordion The next morning we packed up our things, loaded them into Nina’s car, and headed back to Hannover’s central train station. We had a few hours to spare before we needed to hit the tracks, so […]

Admittedly, patience and I know very little about each other, so we’ve been taking some time this morning to get formal introductions out of the way. Who am I kidding, I’ve been so anxious […]

Hello there! I’m about to hit the road, bound for Oklahoma. Playing one of my favorite places tonight– The Wormy Dog Saloon. Rodney and I get to turn it right around tomorrow morning and head home. Not ideal routing, but it happens. I haven’t been to OKC for quite some time, so I’m looking forward […]

I hope everyone had a restful/respectful 3 day weekend. I split my time from Friday to Monday between music (on Friday, I played in Austin with Rodney Hayden, and on Sunday, I played in Houston at the outdoor amphitheater at Sienna with Sheila Marshall) and friends (a wedding and a cookout). It was a nice […]
