this weekend

I'll be in St Louis Thursday, at Off Broadway along with Chatham County Line, and then near Effingham IL on Friday evening, at a krazy kountry festival (Moccasin Creek, it's called) curated by my friend Bill Poss. I'll be a trio on both dates, playing alongside Chris Scruggs and Robbie Gjersoe. (I don't know why the St Louis paper said I'd be solo and thus limited; if I were, which I'm not, I wouldn't be!) 

No idea why the audience last Monday at the Hideout was so enthusiastic and kind, but gee, thanks! It was like an out-of-town audience in a good town -- so surprising to encounter right at home. My performance wasn't, in melancholy fact, commensurate with the sparkling treatment, but I promise to be working on that, each and every day.
