Tomorrow I’m hopping on an airplane, escaping this Nashville heat, to the cooler, 70 degree (with no humidity) Seattle summer. I’ve been very lucky getting some great shows lined-up for this trip. Starting with KEXP’s Concert at the Mural: No Depression Night on Friday, August 26th. Then on Monday, August 29th I’m playing a two-hour solo set at Brave Horse Tavern, which is a new spot since I moved away but they’ve been putting on some great shows, and from the photos I’ve seen it looks right up my alley. I’m looking forward to getting back to Portland as well, with a show on Thursday, September 1st at Doug Fir Lounge. And finally on Thursday, September 8th I’m taking part in a all-star tribute to Patsy Cline featuring NW favorites such as Mark Pickerel, Star Anna, Kim Virant, Jeff Fielder and many more. I’ll mostly be filling the role of a support player, but I may also duet on a song or two. I’m also looking forward to the venue for this show, as it’s in the old Neptune Theatre, which has switched from a movie theater to a venue since I used to live there. Glad the building is still standing and being put to such great use. I would hate to see a beautiful old structures like that get torn down.
