Since the 1970s, it's been a blessing to have played in many wonderful places, far & near, working with some famous and many not-so-famous (but great) musicians.  Every gig is an odyssey.



The top video is Mardi Gras Sunday, February 14, 2021 - music, scripture, a message, and dancing.  Four numbers:  Open: "A Tip From Tina" (original), at 17:50 "Mardi Gras Mambo (in Charlie Towne)" (adaptation), at 35:34 "Strollin' to the Mardi Gras" (original), and at 45:17 "Saints" (traditional).   Thanks to Nate for doing the video; Kathryn, Jeremy, Judy, Michael, and all the good folks at Circular.


Next video down:  my last Blues Vespers at Circular.  This year, I'll be back doing that fun event in August and October (2021).



The row of three videos:  1) Paris, 2008 with Dr. Pickup at Cafe-Concert Utopia, 2) playing washboard with Georgia country blues legend John Lee Ziegler at Blues Estafette (Utrecht, NL, November, 1995), and 3) Poland, 2015 - the last concert of a nationwide tour with the band Green Grass aka Transatlantic Blues Project. 

Next:  FestiBlues Bolivia (La Paz, July, 2017), a brand new song written for the occasion that afternoon in the Hotel Ritz - "Camino a Copacabana", performed with two superb local folklore musicians (charango and zamponas).

The row of two videos are 1) "Big Meal at Midnight" (solo), cut for "Balcony TV", a global series of performances on rooftops, balconies, etc.  The setting is Morgan Creek Grill (now out of business) on the Isle of Palms (SC) on a rainy afternoon.  And the second is that Cali gig on March 6, 2020 with Pancho Ocampo playing some great guitar.  That was my last public gig since the onset of COVID-19.

Bottom:  With North Carolina blues patriarch Richard "Big Boy" Henry, Blues to Bop (Lugano, Switzerland), August, 1993.  Dave Peabody, guitar; Rob Mason, harmonica.  Thanks to Norman Hewitt (RIP) and Ed Bersier.

And we are all wondering... Where do we go next?...  The answer MUST be:  "Nowhere is too far to go."
