SEPTEMBER 19th LIVE AT THE A-FRAME!
AUSTIN CITY UNLIMITED
(and I’m on a new CD)
Have you ever thought, “You know, I’d like to see Gary do a longer set sometime. These 3, 4-song appearances are hardly worth going out to see?” Well, if so, you’re in luck…
Saturday night (Sept. 19th) I get to do a whole evening’s show on a mountain top with a view of the canyon, open air, and a backup chorus of stars. I’ve done a few great house concerts in the LA/Valley area, but mostly always shared the bill. This time it’s all me, two sets, with some new songs and some surprises.
It’s Live At the A-Frame, hosted by Coddy Nuckols, who not only built the place, but is a fine songwriter himself. You’ll hear a couple of tunes by him as well. Doors at 6pm, show at 7, suggested donation is 15 bucks. There’ll be food and drink, but feel free to bring something snacky, wet, or sweet. RSVP for address/directions to firstname.lastname@example.org or (818)486-8505
Then, I’m off to Austin, TX for the Southwest Regional Folk Alliance conference (SWRFA). I’ll be meeting a whole bunch of other touring artists, and doing some pickin’ and playin’ for – and with – people there. So many unique and amazing singers, songwriters, and musicians at these kinds of gatherings, and I get inspired by them all.
Last March, Hillary Rollins produced a show at McCabe’s starring the great Christine Lavin. Christine, being not only brilliantly talented, but very generous, invited a few of their friends to join. Then, my friend Hillary got me on the show to perform a song as well. The show was great, and the guy from McCabe’s recorded it. Now it’s a CD, Hillary Rollins presents Christine Lavin and Friends, full of memorable performances by Christine (naturally), along with Daniel Cainer, Cynthia Carle, David Lucky, MaryJo Mundy, and Pat Whiteman. Oh yes, and I’m doing my song, “Daughter.” It’s available at CDBaby, and I’ll sell some at my gigs. Pick one up!
And thanks to Hillary for slipping me in the back door, and making me a part of such a classy shindig.
