I'll be involved in two performances this month, the first as a producer, and the second as the performer. On Saturday, November 12, the Church of St. Andrew in Marblehead, MA will be reviving its Saturday Night in Marblehead concert series as a monthly event; as I did for its first ten years, I will be serving as its artistic director. The first concert will feature the great Claudia Schmidt. The series will continue on December 17 with the equally great Sally Rogers and her husband, the extraordinary banjo player (and winemaker) Howard Bursen. Doors for both shows open at 7:30 and the music begins at 8pm; tickets at the door are $15. Roots music at its best, for any generation. Watch this space and the church website for news of the 2017 schedule.
On Friday evening after Thanksgiving, November 25, I will be performing what has become an annual show at Club Passim, 47 Palmer St. in Cambridge, MA. Show starts at 8pm, and you can order tickets here. Then a week later, I'll be doing a song or two at Charlie King's annual concert for Haley House in Boston. I haven't shared a stage with Charlie since Tom Smith's Black Lives Matter concert at Passim, and I'm really looking forward to sharing a little time with him and his special guest Bev Grant.
One of the many articles about Bob Dylan after his Nobel Prize win appeared on a Washington Post blog by Jim Hoagland, who cited the political prophecy in Dylan's lyrics, and, as it turns out, in mine as well. Many thanks to Jim for the mention. I'm in excellent company!
