Hey! I was all set to see you in Staunton, VA, only to find out today that the venue closed down! Now I know why musicians cancel shows—or have shows cancelled ON them ;-)

I decided to drive up to Norfolk for your May 5 North Shore House Concert instead. Looks like a very cool venue and they’ve certainly had some great artists there—including you! I’m looking forward to it.

We exchanged messages recently about your plans to come through the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill/Carrboro (NC) area in October. I put in a good word for you at The Arts Center in Carrboro and also with the coordinator of the Durham CoHo concert series. It’s a small but mighty venue in beautiful downtown Durham that has hosted well-known singer/songwriters who enjoy the intimacy of house concert performances. I’ve seen JohnSmith, Jess Klein, and Zoe Mulford there. Friction Farm is playing on March 24th. Like The Arts Center, you would find an enthusiastic and welcoming crowd there.

See you in Norfolk!

Hey Judy,

Indeed, it's a shame we won't be coming to Staunton this year. But the Norfolk gig is a good one. And Karen is still working on Raleigh/Durham for October. Thanks for putting a word in for us!
