I'll close out the year with the return of my popular Beginning Songwriting Workshop and hosting a Songwriter's Showcase as part of First Night State College. But I'm tired of banging my head against a wall trying to get shows at some of our local-ish venues, so I'll be playing more out of town gigs again than in the past couple years. I'm excited about my new Songwriter Sundays with Jim Colbert the last Sunday of each month at Tempest Studios, 140 Kelly Alley in State College. These will be either true unplugged, or at most me and my small Orange amp for a bit of boost. I plan to include a lot of back catalog material, works in progress, and covers that I seldom get to play outside of my music room these days. 2:00 pm, probably play for an hour +, depending who shows up. Free admission, but donations to Tempest Studios to cover the utilities would be gratefully accepted. Should be fun!
