Coming Up In March…
We are excited to our old matinee spot at The Cameron House for the month of March. Kicking back, listening to music and enjoying a beverage in the Front Room of this wonderful club is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. And, at this time of year the late afternoon sun through the window behind the bar creates one of those “Wow, I’m glad I got to see that” moments.
We’ll be joined by the lovely and talented Dave Lang on double bass, which is always a great treat for us!

♪ ♫•*¨*•.¸♪ Wow, last evening was a wonderful cap off to the first year of our ‘Where Have All The Folk Songs Gone’ series at The Free Times Cafe. We launched it last January and have had the opportunity to play to great audiences each month since. Our goal is to stay true to the original arrangements and present as “authentic” a production of the music as possible.
It’s hard to express what it’s like to hear an entire audience singing along to the great songs of the 60′s folk revival, but I think “joyful” sums it up nicely!
Midway through the show we always feature a Phil Ochs song, which is always a highlight. In keeping with the authenticity, Michelle, Tony, and I leave the stage and we feature Dwight solo on these numbers. Last night he sang the beautiful ‘When I’m Gone’ and as I was sitting off to the side it struck me how quiet the, up until then, boisterous crowd had become. You could hear a pin drop as they hung on every word. I quickly grabbed my camera and was able to catch a little bit of the performance, which I’d like to share with you…
