Down the Road

Previous events


New Mexico bookstore event

Bookworks, Albuquerque

Back in mid-March I stopped in Albuquerque early on for this store, and dropped a book off at this wonderful Indie bookstore. Now on July 1 I circle back on the tail end of this tour for a Trump Sonnets event.


Northern Nevada camp

GEAR UP program, Elko

I'll be explaining to high-schoolers how their writing can make a difference in their lives.


Elko show

Western Folklife Center, Elko NV

I'll be doing a show Saturday night, and almost certainly a workshop earlier in the day. More details as I have them. Super-excited about finally doing a public event here at this famed venue.


Southern Nevada event

Great Basin College, Pahrump NV

Great Basin College in Elko has branches throughout the state of Nevada. I'll be doing an event in Pahrump--more details as I have them.


Southern California children's/family show

Museum of Making Music, Carlsbad

I'll be joined by CSU-San Marcos music professor Bill Bradbury and maybe another guest. The preceding day I'll be spending the morning at Leichtag Elementary School in Vista.


Marin Poetry Center

San Rafael CA

Great reading series sponsored by a great organization in beautiful Marin County.


Oregon bookstore event

Tsunami Books, Eugene OR

It's been a long while since I've done something in Eugene, and at Tsunami Books. But it's a perfect place to come with Trump Sonnets (and, of course, with fiddle).


Western Washington bookstore visit

Village Books, Bellingham

Too long since I've been to Bellingham and Village Books. Looking forward to coming and sharing what I've been up to. It's been eight years, I still have my fiddle, still have stories, and now have Trump Sonnets, a brand new book.


Seattle bookstore event

University Book Store, Seattle

More details as I have them, but I'll be there with Trump Sonnets and with fiddle and with stories from the road (and about the book). I'm waiting to see which Seattle music friend(s) will be by to join me for some tunes as part of the program. This will be a fun one. First public Seattle event in almost three years.


Olympia bookstore event

Orca Books, Olympia WA

It's been years and years since I've done anything in Olympia. But here's a cinco de mayo appearance, with Trump Sonnets.


Eastern Washington bookstore visit

Auntie's, Spokane WA

I'll be playing fiddle, telling stories, and letting people know about the new Trump Sonnets book.


Idaho bookstore visit

Rediscovered Books, Boise ID

I'll do a set of fiddle tunes and poetry with a few Alaska-set stories thrown in to help celebrate the store's Indie Bookstore day.


MHAC show and residency

Mountain Home Arts Council, Mountain Home ID

For the Wednesday public show, I'll be joined by Caldwell ID banjo player Scott Knickerbocker, who's terrific. Otherwise, I'll be in the community for four days, visiting schools and offering workshops.


rural Idaho residency--workshops, shows, class visits

venues in and around Salmon ID

I'll be spending two days leading a writing workshop, visiting schools, and will be doing a solo public show in one of the most beautiful places on the continent. Expect fun, inspiration, and surprises.


Montana bookstore event

Fact & Fiction, Missoula MT

Saturday afternoon income tax day program--and Easter weekend program--and I'll have my Trump Sonnets book. That plus fiddling and Alaska-set poems.
