Wednesday News - May 14, 2008

I have settled into the Chicago area with my family, and I enjoyed a fun performance with Ben Bedford at Bill's Blue's in Evanston. I'm looking forward to playing this coming Saturday at the Starbucks on Dempster in Skokie. The environment there is casual and comfortable. I'll be playing from 7:30-9 p.m., no cover.

I hope to get started on a new recording soon, to get the large number of unrecorded songs in my repertoire down for good. I'll keep you posted. I also expect to get some sound files on here for you soon, but in the meantime, you can sample my latest CD at If you want to hear a sampling from the Duggan, Doyle, and Liebers album, Watching Time Walk, visit

That's all for now.


Here I am - April 14, 2008

At the prodding of a few friends, I'm returning to a more regular maintenance schedule on my website. I just returned to Chicago from a trip to South Dakota, my old stomping grounds, where I was picking some tunes with friends. I'm getting geared up for my first performance in the Chicago area, Sunday, April 27 at Bill's Blues in Evanston. See my calendar page for details. I will be sharing the bill with Ben Bedford. Don't miss it!

Otherwise, I'm settling in to Chicago, and I expect to be performing often in the coming months, and doing some studio work as well.
