Photos and review of Paramount show

I've just uploaded a selection of photos from my concert at The Paramount on April 17, 2009, with Gerry Paul. Thanks to Ranya Kaiser for these photos and her permission to use them. You can find them at Facebook and Myspace, in addition to my website.

Also, I got a nice review from the show, published at I've placed this review, as well as one of my favorite quotes from it, at the Press section of my website.

And now back to slowly, slowly producing my next CD...

Gerry Paul to join Wellington show

A quick update regarding my Wellington show this Friday: Gerry Paul of Irish/Celtic band Grada will be joining me for several songs at the end of my set. He'll be bringing his banjo, guitar, hopefully some colorful pants, and he'll also be implementing my dears, Goldie and Ampie, on Greyhound Through the Rockies. A little extra flavour for you - hope to see you there!

  • Friday, April 17 @ 8:00 pm, @ The Paramount, 25 Courtenay Place, Wellington, New Zealand

Upcoming Wellington show

Ahoy, Wellington! Mark this date in your calendar:

  • Friday, April 17 @ 8:00 pm, @ The Paramount, 25 Courtenay Place, Wellington, New Zealand

It's been a year since my last show in Wellington - wow, it seems like just yesterday! Here's the deal - it's me and my guitars. This is a free, one-hour showcase of some songs that I am preparing to record for a new CD. I'll love it (and probably you'll love it) if you attend this fabulous and (did I mention?) free event.

Also, I am inviting (consider this an open invitation) any web writers or bloggers to attend, take in the show, and publish something about it. I am lacking online (and printed) praise and criticism, and I value the published words of web-savvy people like you and I. So please forward this invite to any such friends or acquaintances you have. Heck, send this invite to everyone!

See you there,
