Happy New Year!

THIS WEEK IN THE BOSTON AREA: THERE ARE 4 SPACES LEFT IN A GUITAR WORKSHOP I'M TEACHING IN MEDFORD MA ON WEDNESDAY (tomorrow) EVENING, JANUARY 14. More info below*

I'm happy to announce I'll be performing in Washington D.C. at the HRC Equality Ball for the Barack Obama Inaugural on Tuesday January 20th, along with Melissa Etheridge, Rufus Wainwright and Cyndi Lauper!   Yes we can, yes we did and yes, tickets are $375 for this special event.   I'll also be at Lambda Rising Books in Dupont Circle on Sunday January 18th at 2 pm for a short (and free) set of music and a CD signing.  

From DC I travel to shows in Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota, where the lovely Meg Hutchinson will be opening and singing harmonies with me.  Then I'll be back in New England to play coffeehouse shows in Framingham MA and Cumberland RI.  

Coming up in February, I'm recording a bluegrass-style CD at Compass Records in Nashville. I understand they have a heck of a banjo player lined up!  And since the theme of my February is Nashville, I'm playing a festival in Belfast called the "Belfast Nashville Songwriter Festival," along with Nanci Griffith, Tift Merritt and many other fine writers.  Following the festival I travel to England for one date only, in London, at the Borderline—it's been 6 years since I was there last, and I'm really looking forward to returning.  I'll also be in Pennsylvania and NYC in February, so check gig listings if you live there!  Colorado, Utah and Albuquerque also to come this spring.    

Sweet Life, my new CD released this fall, was just named one of the top TEN CDs of 2008 by WUMB radio! Thanks, WUMB!  www.wumb.org

Happy New Year.
