A busy May behind the scenes as Some Stories continues to move forward, the third and final show scheduled with Laura Blackley and Marc Higgins – this month we’re in Knoxville at Boyd’s Jig & Reel for their “Wednesday Night Listening Room” series, plus a couple private shows that I can’t really tell you anything about (just know I’m available for private events). Make sure to check out the Shows page to preview all the upcoming June dates with Mic Harrison, the Tim Lee 3, plus Bob Dylan’s Birthday Bash.
Several exciting shows coming up this month. First, I’ll be opening for Scott Miller at Uncle Slayton’s in Louisville, KY on Friday the 5th. I’ve been sharing stages with Scott since the 90′s when he was a V-roy and I was a Shapeshifter, then in recent years, him with his Commonwealth and I with my electric trio, but this’ll be the first time we’ve done a show together acoustic. On Friday the 12th is the Beaumont Rocks show at Knoxville’s Relix Variety Theatre. This is a benefit to support the arts at Beaumont Elementary School and will feature performances by The Pinklets, George Reynolds, myself, The Lonetones and Mac Comer. The following night I’ll be opening for the Tim Lee 3 at the Summit City Lounge in Whitesburg, KY – always a good time! My last show of the month will be on Saturday the 27th at Cribbs Kitchen in Spartanburg, SC with Laura Blackley and Marc Higgins – our second of three shows we’re doing together. Check out the Shows page for all the details.
Spring’s almost here and I’ll be hitting the road for several shows this month. Tonight I’m opening for my pals the Tim Lee 3 at their CD release show at the Pilot Light in the Old City. Lot’s of fun things planned, plus a set by RB Morris! Saturday night I’ll be accompanying Mic Harrison, who will be opening for Chris Knight, at the Brewhouse Music & Grill in Rome, GA – sure to be a good time! Wednesday the 18th I’ll be at Isis Music Hall in Asheville, NC for the first of three shows with Laura Blackley and Marc Higgins. We’ll be performing in-the-round and will be doing shows together in Spartanburg and Knoxville in April and May as well. Speaking of Spartanburg, Mic and I will be doing our first official Full Body Tour show there on Friday the 22nd opening for the Marc Higgins Band – history will be made! …and if we survive it, we’re gonna do it again Wednesday the 27th at Mad Donna’s in Nashville. To end the month I’ll once again be accompanying Mic, but this time we’ll be performing at the inaugural I WANNA ROCK! Concert at
Maryville Rock Academy (The Betsy House in Rockford). This is a free, family friendly, concert series that focuses on giving kids a chance to hear local artists and participate as opening acts. My cousin, eight-year-old EmiSunshine, will be opening this show.
