Good morning!
It’s Tuesday, January 29. It seems like I was singing “AULD LANG SYNE”,
only a couple of weeks ago. Now here comes February! We’ve already had so
 many wonderful shows to kick off the year.

Micheal Hearne, Mike Roberts, and I had two great shows over the past weekend.
Saturday night we played a ‘house concert’ in Smithville, TX. hosted by Jeri Nell
and Walt Winslett,  The Mosaic House Concert Series. It was located right on
the corner of Main Street and Loop 230 in an old historic building, with the
first floor being a cool antique and artist store and upstairs their home, their living quarters, which they generously turned  a bedroom into a backstage green room for us and  moved furniture and set up chairs in the living room to provide an intimate  listening room, concert hall for 70. We had a full house of very enthusiastic
 Unicorn loving folks. I met people not only from Smithville, but from all around
 the area; Bastrop, La Grange, Paige, Giddings and Austin, they all came out. I saw some old faces I hadn’t seen in a while and met a lot of new ones, too. Thank you both so much for your generosity and hospitality and opening your home to all of us. It was a pleasure.  I hope we can do this again next year.

On Sunday, the very next afternoon, we found ourselves at old Gruene Hall for an
early evening show from 5-8pm. It was a beautiful day and the little historic tourist area of Gruene was swarming with people sightseeing,  shopping, and enjoying the gorgeous afternoon. Inside the old dancehall where we were playing the place was packed and more crowded and over flowing,  much more than usual. From the very first song it felt like everyone, the whole room, was with us and behind us, encouraging and cheering us on song after song.  And we played a lot of songs! It always feels good driving home after an energetic show like this one was, feeling like everyone had fun and enjoyed the show. Thanks for coming out and making it a memorable one for us. And thank you Tracie for inviting us to the historic Gruene Hall!


I will be doing a Solo Show at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck in Houston.  It’s an early show. The music starts at 7:30. Come on out, have dinner, set back and hear some songs and stories. Let me know if you have any requests.  I hope to see you there tonight.
Peace    Shake
