Upcoming Gigs

July 26
Morristown, NJ THE TROUBADOUR ACOUSTIC CONCERT SERIES Morristown Unitarian Fellowhsip
21 Normandy Heights Road
Morristown, NJ 07960
Tickets: $12
I will be taking part in the Troubadour's (formerly the "Minstrel's") 44th anniversary concert. This takes place on the Friday closest to July 25, which was the date of the opening night. And, which, coincidentally, was my 30th birthday. How the show works is that on July 4th, any Folk Project member wanting to take part in the show put his/her name on an index card. We shuffled up the cards, and dealt out random duos and trios. And each group so formed gets to do do one song. I'm in two groups. Come help us celebrate this anniversary with communal music. There will be birthday cake.

21 Normandy Heights Road
Morristown, NJ 07960
Tickets: $10 at the door plus the rest of what you think the ticket was really worth on your way out.
I will be taking part in the Troubadour's (formerly the Minstrel's) annual Chorus Song Night. The once common, but now rare experience of singing together with others is kept alive in this annual event at the Troubadour. Songs with choruses. Familiar songs. Songs whose structure telegraphs or implies the lyrics. If you like to sing with the radio, it's even more fun when you sing with a real person in a room full of others who like to sing. In addition to me, songs will be led by:
Bob Dupre: Wonderful acapella singer of sea songs, pub songs, etc.
Olga Alvarez: A respected professional vocalist in her native Cuba, Olga has become a fixture in the Folk Project community, and sings in Spanish as well as English.
Ken & Pat Rolston: Well known for their harmonies, the Rolstons' repertoire runs the gamut from traditional ballads to doo-wop.
