2018 Plans!

At Davidson College in November 2017.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I will be announcing my 2018 tour dates in mid-March just before my first concert of the year at one of my favorite folk clubs, Dreamer's Folk in Cornwall. 

This year, I'll be touring in England & Wales, and across the USA, including Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Illinois, Arkansas, Texas, California, Florida, and Alabama (and likely stops in between). If you are especially keen to host a concert or tell me about a venue in your area, I'd be glad to hear from you at

My tour will be smaller than in previous years because I am working on several book projects, a live CD, and new songs. These book projects require several weeks/months of uninterrupted reading and writing, as well field research. What are they? At least one is the novel set in my home of Southwest Virginia, "Middle Creek," which I began in 2015. You can read the first chapter here and you can also hear me read it by clicking the Soundcloud link. The other two projects are too fledgling to describe, but one involves sewing!

In order to see these writing/sewing projects through, I am planning about 25 concerts this year which is half of my normal schedule (a third compared to some years!), so please do be in touch if you want to be sure I don't miss your town.

See you out there on the road soon!

Big big smiles and joy from me to you,
