  • Last night I played in a special space, for a wonderful crowd, with an old friend. This must be my lucky weekend, because I’m doubling down and playing tonight in a special space (The Pump House in Wakefield, RI), for a wonderful crowd, with a new friend (Kate Mick). The part about tonight’s crowd being wonderful is an educated guess based on every time I’ve played at the Pump House before. I hope you’ll join me there tonight and prove me right. Doors open at 7pm; music starts at 7:30pm. (photo by @mrcrit) #Wakefield #RhodeIsland #folkmusic
  • This photo was taken 20 or 30 years ago at a place called The Forge in Stonington, CT after the four men you see here had just completed a musical performance. Naturally, when asked to smile for the camera, we each looked in wildly different directions, as was the style of the day. The gentleman on the far left, one Shea Vaccaro, went on to found a band called The Ol’ Factory, a name of which part of me remains jealous to this day. The lovable scamp on the far right, James Maple, now creates fine leather goods in The Forge when he is not out traveling the world as a celebrated musician and bon vivant. The ragamuffin to my right is Will Houlihan, a.k.a Billy Fingerless Gloves, a.k.a Haunt The House. By some cosmic coincidence/joke, he and I will find ourselves back in The Forge tonight to play what I believe to be the first show there since the one that immediately preceded this photograph. James will host. Shea is invited. You’re invited, too. We start at 7pm. (photo by Bill Johnson) #Stonington #Connecticut #folkmusic
  • This is a heck of a poster for a heck of a show, both of which were put together by Jen Long (@accordionprincess). All the information you need is right there, but most importantly: it’s Thursday evening at The Parlour in Providence, RI, and all proceeds will be donated to the Pediatric Heart Center at Hasbro Children’s Hospital. So come hear each of these acts play a couple of songs to ease us gracefully away from Valentine’s Day. See you there. #Providence #lovehangover #benefitshow #charity #folkmusic
