Previous events


Arts Midwest conference


Another conference--this time in Milwaukee.


western PA writing workshop

Indiana Free Library, Indiana PA

In conjunction with the Northern Appalachian Folk Festival, I'll be leading a free two-hour writing workshop at the public library in Indiana PA. Open to writers of all genres and all experience, participants will begin four new pieces and learn strategies to begin many more. There will be something for everyone.


central OH show

Mad River Theater, Zanesfield OH

I'll be playing this very cool space less than hour out of Columbus, near Bellefontaine. Hope to be joined at various times by Chris Westhoff, Bob Lucas, Chloe Manor. It's the perfect follow-up from my May residency through LOCO Arts and the Holland Theater. $10 suggested donation.


NC Presenters

Diane Wortham Theatre, Asheville

I wasn't going to attend, but I had three days free to attend the June 20-22 conference, and frequent flier miles to get me straight to Asheville. It makes sense, so I'll be there.


Ohio residency

Bellefontaine and Zanesfield

We're looking at three days of school visits and a Saturday night public show at the Holland Theater in Bellefontaine. It will be a terrific roots music variety show which will include the Hedgehog String Band (Bob Lucas, Chloe Manor, and Chris Westhoff), Rick Good and Sharon Leahy, and myself and one or two others from the Root Cellar String Band of Bowling Green OH, (including fiddler, Lucy Long).


Kuskokwim College show

Bethel AK

I'll be in the community for three days, visiting classes, being of service, and that will culminate with a Friday evening show where I'll be joined by Anchorage musicians, Peter Johnson, Todd Grebe, and Angela Oudean. It'll be a legendary night.


Alaska Folk Festival


I'll be doing a Friday night set with Austin pal, Jerry Hagins, plus hope to add a few surprises. Also I'll be doing a workshop over the weekend.


Orange County outreach

Soka University, Aliso Viejo CA

11 A.M. show for local students where I'll be at the black box theater on campus, and that will be followed by 12:15 program in the writing center for Soka staff, faculty and students. It's National Poetry Month!
