My my, where does the time go?
Good things to report this week. The recording I made with Jono of Townes Van Zandt's "Snowing On Raton" came out great and will be the first track on the 32 song Townes tribute album being released on the Italian label Appaloosa Records on April 21st. It's a great collection of artists and I am honored to be there along with the likes of Joe Ely, Terry Allen, Malcolm Holcomb, Sam Baker, Slaid Cleaves, Jono Manson, Radoslav Lorković, Gurf Morlix, David Olney, Chris Jagger, Paolo Ercoli, Jeff Talmadge and many many more ... pretty amazing company to find myself in ....
Next month I'll be traveling to Tucson for a couple of shows followed by a long wonderful visit to the Kerrville Folk festival where I'll be making a main stage appearance at the Threadgill Theater on Monday, May 28th (along with Joe Jencks) ... I'm also one of this year's New Folk Competition judges along with BettySoo and Pierce Pettis ... can't wait!
July is going to find me on the left coast doing shows in California ...
And work continues on the next album called (for now) "Carnival Town"
