It's another excellent Somerville Songwriter Sessions show -- I'm sharing the show with Phil Henry and Caroline Cotter. We'll each play a mini individual set in the first half; after a break we'll play in-the-round. The Armory Cafe has great food, and the venue has free parking. $15 at the door.

Jul30

I host -- and play at -- the longest-running song circle dedicated to the music of the late, great, Dave Carter. If you're at the festival, stop by. This year we'll be at the Dark and Stormy website (there will be signs for the song circle ahead of time -- scope out the location in advance). Come play, sing, or just listen!

Jul8

Three songwriters swapping songs -- it's been AGES since I've played an in-person show, and these are great folks to share the stage with. One Broadway Collaborative is a wonderful welcoming community space, worth supporting. In-person AND livestream, so you can tune in no matter where you are.

$15

The Somerville Songwriter Sessions returns! In the first half of the show each artist will play a brief solo set; in the second half we'll play in-the-round. Suggested donation $10. (Free parking at the rear of the building.) The Armory requires proof of vaccination for those who are eligible, and masks except when eating.

WICN - Nick Noble's 700th Show

WICN 90.5

Honored to be part of the celebration of Nick Noble's 700th hosting of the Folk Revival. I'll play for 20 minutes (including at least one duet with Nick) at just after 8 p.m.

Some of the area's leading songwriters perform their original songs. Includes a song challenge: each songwriter will debut a newly-written song on a theme suggested by last month's audience ("Who is left to witness?"). The Serendipity Cafe has great homemade food and provides a welcoming listening environment. https://www.facebook.com/events/488919131817796/

Somerville Songwriter Sessions at the Armory Cafe presents a concert on Saturday February 1 with singer/songwriters Beth DeSombre, Joanne Lurgio, and Sean Ryder. The concert will feature a solo set by each artist, followed by a round robin song swap. The show begins at 7:30 pm with an open mic, and admission is $10. The Armory Cafe is at 191 Highland Avenue, Somerville. For more information call 617-718-2191 or visit artsatthearmory.org/cafe or www.facebook.com/SomervilleSongwriterSessions. Email SomervilleSongwriter@gmail.com or send a FB message to reserve an open mic slot. https://www.facebook.com/events/456415855026122/
