I've been invited to perform at a new brewery in Downtown Melbourne as part of a Tuesday night concert series in a small room they call the Vault. My show is on June 20th and the $20 ticket price includes admission and drinks. The venue holds under 30 people so I expect it will be an intimate evening with a focus on songwriting and the stories behind the songs. I'm excited about this - plus, I'm having a talented lead player join me. Can't wait.
Tomorrow is the big day. The first ever Writers Round at the Melbourne Art Festival. Now in its 33rd year, the festival has been ranked in the top 100 fine art shows in the nation for most of its existence. I'm honored to be on stage with Mary Kelly and Dianne Martin-Karelovich, two phenomenal songwriters I've had the pleasure of meeting at a monthly writer's night. Our show is at 1 pm. If you're in Melbourne, FL - Wickham Park on Wickham Road. It should be a good festival all around.
I had the distinct pleasure of recording a song written by my dear friend and stellar songwriter, Steve Hodak. Here is a video of the recording.
I'm excited to be part of the first songwriter's round ever presented at this year's Melbourne Art Festival. I was a long-time volunteer on the organizing committee of the festival but haven't been involved in several years. However, I've had the pleasure of performing on the art festival stage a few times over the years. Last year I shared the stage with John Clark and Dave Clark. This year I'll be performing alongside Dianne Martin-Karelovich and Mary Kelly, two outstanding songwriters from Brevard County, Fl. The show takes place Saturday, April 22 from 1 to 1:45 pm at Wickham Park. This year marks the 33rd year of this
