Monday, June 24, 2019 - New Live YouTube Playlists

I just created two new playlists on YouTube to showcase some some-acoustic live work I've done over the past few years. One is a compilation of open mic performances from The Bridge Progressive Arts Center in Charlottesville, while the other is a playlist of the 7 episode Cottage Sessions series I did back in 2015. 

Here ya go: 

Thursday, June 20, 2019 - Getting Out - Ruby's Lounge, Harrisonburg, VA

Last night my friend, playwright / poet Ben Siegan, and I took a journey "over the mountain" to Harrisonburg, VA to play the weekly open mic night at Ruby's Lounge. Ben read three spoken word pieces, while I played "Beautiful Soul" and "Andrew Olsen". While there was a lot of conversation going between the bar patrons, I feel like we went over pretty well and hope to make it over again in a couple of weeks. It's always enjoyable to hear what people at different open mics are doing.

Next Wednesday, June 26, is the monthly open mic at The Bridge Progressive Arts Center in Charlottesville. This is very well run and people are there to pay attention to the artists & poets. They usually post videos of the performances to YouTube, so watch this space later next week. 

Happy Summer!

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 - "These Days" and "Sorry Again" Live from Charlottesville

I was sad to have missed The Bridge (Charlottesville, VA) open mic session in March. I was as sick with the flu and felt worse than I have in ages. So it was nice to be back in April. Turns out I wore the same shirt I wore in February. We'll have to remedy that next time, ha ha. Thanks to Patsy Asuncion for bringing in a videographer and for publishing artists' performances on YouTube. You can see the videos from February on our NewsBlog page. 

These Days -

Sorry Again - 

Thanks, as always, for tuning in.
