San Antonio   The Green House Concert     The Alamo Beer Company

Last Thursday night we performed at this newly located songwriter’s series. We had a good turnout for a rainy night. I want to thank Tom Wasson for bringing this series to the San Antonio area. We hope hope you folks in San Antone will support this venue.  We hope to return next season.

Friday we headed to the Houston area to play Anderson Fair.  It’s the iconic folk club of Houston.  I have a long history with the establishment and always enjoy playing this prestigious club.  We had a standing room only audience cheering us on!  We will be back at the Fair on New Years Eve, so if you haven’t made plans yet for the big night come on out and celebrate the new year in with us!!

Saturday we performed at Bill and Deanna Barnes House concert.  This was our return visit to their home series. and evidently their series is thriving. They have enlarged their home by knocking out a wall and making two smaller rooms into one large concert hall.  You know a venue is doing well and growing when people start knocking out walls!!  There was plenty of great food and all kinds of delicious desserts too!
You know, I love house concerts! Sunday we played a house warming/ back yard concert for Bryan and Andrea McCole. The invited about 100 friends and family.  We were set up on their back porch/patio and played our first set .  Everyone was out in the back yard in their lawn chairs, standing,  or sitting on large garden rocks, and  then…a few were dancing and swaying.  It was a blue sky, sunny fall afternoon…and then, just like the world series, the rain came and we had a rain delay.  They rolled out the tarps, and they ran for cover.  We stayed warmed up back in the locker room. The rain passed and the show continued. There was even a James Coney Food truck on site!
It was a nice, relaxed atmosphere and the perfect way to wrap up the four days of shows.
Then we were off until Wednesday Nov. 9th. where  we were performing at our 5th annual charity event in Houston  hosted by “Habitat for Horses".   The fundraiser was held at  Goode Co.  Armadillo Palace on Kirby in Houston. for information on this wonderful group. It was a great night of music and giving and they raised almost $80,000 for the horses they help.  I wish you could have been there.  See you soon,
