LOST ISSUES
You've probably been wondering where the newsletter has been since October. More likely, you
haven't noticed at all. But I do feel compelled to explain this lengthy break with tradition.

First off, I had been working very hard to get the new CD out before the end of the year. Then my
daughter, Jen, got married in Colorado (it was lovely, thanks for asking). So I've been pretty busy
but now I'm getting back on track. One of my New Year's resolutions is to produce 12 newsletters
this year. Even if no one notices.

Rest assured your subscription will be extended two months to make up for the lost issues.  


WHEN YOU’RE HAPPY
The new CD, When You’re Happy, was finally released on Dec. 15.Thus far it has received rave
reviews, and not just from family members. A lot of my friends like it, too.

Actually, I was a little delinquent in sending it out to radio stations and music publications (see
above) but the album did make Nick Noble’s Top 15 list for 2016. Nick has a weekly folk show on
WICN in Worcester, Mass., and he described the CD as “fun, whimsical and beautifully produced.”
I couldn't agree more.

You can order a copy from my
website, from CD Baby or at any of my gigs. Digital tracks can be
purchased through any of the traditional channels (iTunes, Amazon, etc.).

KNOCK ON WOOD
My new acoustic duo, Knock on Wood, has been out and about, playing gigs in New Hampshire
and Massachusetts. It’s been going well. I have two rotating Massachusetts. It's been going well.
I have two rotating partners, which means that they split up the gigs – not that they spin around
on the stage (although Joe does like to boogie a bit).

Joe Kessler and Steve Latanision have shared the workload so far. They both play fiddle and
mandolin, and sing backup vocals. We're going to be adding some new tunes for our upcoming
shows.

Joe and I had a great time at First Night Worcester, drawing the largest crowd at the venue. Steve
then played the next two shows, including a packed house at the Marshfield Library. We have
three more library shows in March and one in April.

GOING IT ALONE
I'll be doing a rare solo show on April 29 at the Flint Memorial Library in Reading, opening for Bill
Staines. Seating is limited so it's best to reserve in advance. For tickets, click

OUTDOOR SUMMER CONCERTS
The Knock on Wood summer tour is booking up fast. So far, we've scheduled shows in Litchfield,
N.H.; Canton; Weymouth and Raymond, N.H. Several other towns have made commitments and
will be scheduling concerts soon.

OK, I think that’s enough for now. We’re all caught up. Hope to see you soon.
