Thanks to Wally Jones and the whole gang at Fort Worth’s historic Casa Mañana Theatre for bringing me and Shoshana down to Texas to have a foot-stompin’ good time. The theater itself looks like some crazy biodome with a Mylar ceiling, and we were performing on the set of their current production of Charlotte’s Web, which led one fan to tweet: “Brilliant concert on the farm in outer space!” And that just about says it. We were especially blessed to have the wonderful Betty Buckley in attendance – Betty has been a great supporter of mine through the years andRead More »

The awesome folks at Starving Artists Studios in Orlando, FL brought me down South for a concert and masterclass, and I brought along Gary Sieger, my longtime guitarist, because his entire family lives in Florida and they haven’t ever seen us play together.
