Knock on Wood, my folk-rock duo, has two upcoming library concerts this month: Thursday, March
15, in West Roxbury and Thursday, March 29, in Pembroke. Details are at the end of this
newsletter. Or just Google the libraries; it's up on their schedules.
The library shows are always fun because we get to do a lot of my original stuff with plenty of
humorous moments and audience participation. Then we add in some classic rock covers. And I'll

For those who have been following the tour, we’ll be adding some new material: a few new
originals and songs by Tom Petty and R.E.M.
We also have some library concerts booked during the summer. For our complete schedule, videos

Red Sox beat and take questions from the audience.
If that wasn't exciting enough, I even give away a couple of baseball CDs.
It’s a blast. So far, I've booked 10 of these shows. For more info, click here.
In case you were wondering, the definition of a "senior" is fairly imprecise – I've seen it described
as anyone over 50 – so if you live in the area and you're interested, just show up. You won't be
carded, I promise. A phone reservation may be required so check with the senior center before
Here's an alphabetical list of towns where I'll be doing baseball shows:
I’ll also be doing a baseball talk in Lynnfield. It may include a few songs.
SUMMER IN THE CITY
Knock on Wood has a full slate of outdoor summer concerts on tap and we're still in the process of
booking at this point. The outdoor season kicks off with a show at the Marblehead Farmers Market
on June 16 and currently has 11 dates (we're also doing three indoor summer shows).
We're probably coming to a town near you. If not, take a little road trip. We'll make it worth your
