songwriter night in lubbock, tx
I'm back in Ohio after a smooth roll eastward across the southern part of the country... through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas... then up through Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, and into "OH-IO!"
I met some lovely people out there, swapped CDs with lots of other talented songwriters, and played to some appreciative audiences. Thanks to all of the folks who hosted me on my eastward tour: Timbo at the Ranch, Bead Louise & Stephan in Pioneertown, Uncle Jim & Aunt Jean in Phoenix, the O'Briens in Hobbs, Sean O'Connell in La Porte, and Gervais Wright in Houston...

Between my generous hosts, my favorite public lands, and some new spots I discovered on www.freecampsites.net, I didn't have to pay for lodging once. For those of you wondering how a musician can afford to travel... well it helps to live in a van and not spend much!
Now I'm back in Ohio just in time for the spring bird migration. I spent this week visiting my family in Ottawa county (self-proclaimed warbler capitol of the world!). Now I'm headed to spend some time teaching outdoors at Camp Oty' Okwa.
This coming weekend I have a run of shows with singer-songwriter Josiah Whitley!Port City Pub - Portsmouth, OH Thurs. May 5th at 7PM Spirited Goat Coffeehouse - Yellow Springs, OH Fri. May 6th at 7PM The Listing Loon - Cincinnati, OH Sat. May 7th at 9PM
Please bring your 10 closest friends and c'mon out!
And don't forget to get outside and see who's flying around your neighborhood these days!
