Hi Friends and Fans,
Things are really beginning to gear up here in 2013. Most immediately, we’re heading out to the “in-famous” (quote: Three Amigos) SXSW Festival in Austin, TX. But, we can’t just go from 0 to 60 in a day. So, we’ve booked a few tiny “pop-up shows” THIS WEEK around Kentucky to warm-up for the event. These mini-concerts will feature a lot of the music from the latest record, Half-Made Man, with my trusty musical companion, the eight-armed Jordon Ellis on percussion. I know it’s last minute, but if you can make it, these will be a lot of fun. Here’s the scoop:
Looking back for a moment, thanks to everyone who attended December’s show at the Lexington Opera House. Your support helped to generate nearly $10,000 in donations to Institute 193 so they can keep doing their good work in Kentucky. Remember that night? A packed house, massive shadow puppets, the stunning Anna + Elizabeth, etc… Well, if your memory is a little foggy or you weren’t able to be there, check out this beautiful video by Institute 193 documenting the show.
In other news, I’m thrilled to be heading out in support of Over the Rhine in April. If you live in the eastern side of the country we’re probably coming somewhere near you. Check out the tour dates on the website. There you can also get info on all the upcoming events this spring and summer.
As always, I’m so grateful for your support and enthusiasm… you’re the best!
