I have had another whirlwind few weeks. Let’s go backwards…
Aug 9: I performed at Montclair CenterStage presented by Outpost in the Burbs, and found out I’m being considered for an opening spot at the latter!! This is a huge honor and I’m crossing my fingers. Thanks to Bill Brandenburg and Gail Prusslin for believing in me and supporting my music in such a big way, and to Joann Smalls at CenterStage for hosting this incredible event. (Check out the writeup in the Montclair Times last week by clicking this sentence.) Oh, and Gail was kind enough to take a video that is now on the Outpost YouTube page!
July 31-Aug 3: Along with buddies Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes, I played a LOT at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, which was incredibly fun. It was wonderful to be embraced by my folk music community, many of whom hadn’t seen me since I transitioned. Thanks everyone who helped make this event amazing for me, especially Ethan and Jake from Pesky J. Nixon, Kathy Sands-Boehmer, Jesse Terry, Gordon Nash and Budgiedome, Richard Cuccaro at AcousticLive and all of my fellow Pirate Campers.
July 29: And last but most definitely not least, I was honored and thrilled to play my first big show in NYC at Rockwood Music Hall on Tues, July 29, joined by some of my best friends: Scott Stein, Chris Kelly, Craig Greenberg, and Andy Mac. Thanks to Ken Rockwood, Matt Currie and the whole staff for their love and supprt. Here’s one more video for you from the show, by Sam Teichman Photo and Video, my version of my dear friend Marci Geller‘s “Forgotten Dreams.”
