Hope you've all had a wonderful summer. Mine ended with a lovely weekend in the Lake Superior area where I performed as a Big Top Chautauqua songwriter finalist along with 20 other fine songwriters from around the country. My days were spent enjoying some beautiful hikes in the national forest and along the south shore of Lake Superior. I found spectacular views of the sea caves and the weather was perfect! Performing "Strawberry Pie" at Big Top Chautauqua. Locally, I perform September 3, 7:00 pm as part of sample night at the Bryant Lake Bowl. I'll be giving a 10 minute sample of my music to promote my appearance at Acadia Café on Saturday, Sept 13. At Sample Night you'll also get to see 10 other acts, from comedy to music to performance art and more. The September 13 show at Acadia is part of KFAI's Roots night. Hosted by DJ, Ellen Stanley, it will feature myself, Dan Gaarder (of Trailer Trash & Roe Family Singers), Jeremy Greenhouse (of the Sweet Colleens) and Ellen doing a few Mother Banjo originals. The Fall schedule also takes me to Madison, WI and Phoenix, AZ for the Far-West conference.
