Kevin here from the UK. Hope you don't mind me dropping you a line?
I'll try to be brief.
I've spent most of my life teaching but for 20 years I've been involved in music,, playing, (badly), putting bands and tours and festivals together both here and out of the country (S F Blues Fest for example),done some journalism, worked for a N Y radio station etc. I have always worked with friends. I know that you will know most names, especially the U S ones. This has no relevance other than I wanted you to know and that it should explain the next bit.
I only came across your music a short while ago. In fact it was Hard to Believe' that I heard. I must have played it dozens of times and then played it myself. It made the hairs stand on the back of my neck.
I have since began to search out your music and looked at your tours. I missed your recent UK shows. Hope I can catch you next time. If I can put any venue suggestions your way, I'll be happy to
My very best wishes
Thanks Kevin. Sorry you missed the UK tour this year. It'll be a while before we are back over. Cheers,
Eric Farr here in Orange County,CA.
I noticed the updated 20187 tour schedule and saw Arizona is as farr west as you are coming ? Are there no plans to come to the west coast this tour ? if is so i'll be super bummed out . I love your music and listen on Pandora , continuously to you , as well as Dave Alvin, John Doe, Christopher Knight, Jesse Dayton etc.
