I’m in the Buckeye state! That’s Ohio for all of you who are not familiar with this somewhat weird nick name. I actually had to look up what it means and here’s what I found out. Not only did the state have a lot of Buckeye trees but William Henry Harrison who ran for president in 1840 used a log cabin made out of buckeye wood his trademark and the name of the tree itself comes from the markings on the nut that resembles the eye of a buck, the Indians called it “hetuck” or “buckeye.” So that’s today’s history lession for you. Now, let’s focus on what’s yet to come!

I’m working my way through the USA going north on the East Coast. In this episode I’m playing at a rock, paper, scissors tournament, sing Bobby McGee with Dr Lou and check out where Snookie got knocked the fuck out!

I just landed a last minute show in Baltimore, MD this Wednesday May 16th. I’m playing at Cyclops (30 West North Ave.) with Baltimore band American Folklore and NYC singer/songwriter Anthony DaCosta. After that I’ll be heading up to Philadelhia, PA for a show at Connie’s Ric Rac on Thursday. I hope to see a lot of friendly faces on the shows!
I’m tracking my footprints, or rather tire tracks, back towards the east coast and will be re-visiting a few of my favorite concert venues and exploring a couple of new ones along the way. So it’s extra nice when Connect Savannah gives me this “welcome back” in their latest edition:
Sofia Talvik’s newest collection of songs, The Owls Are Not What They Seem, sounds like it could have been recorded in the early 1970s, when singer/songwriters were prized for their eccentricity, and the striking colors they brought as individuals to commercially-viable acoustic balladry. (…)
On this album, she is clearly in her element. It is a thing of spectral acoustic beauty, and this Monday night performance is highly recommended by us jaded fools here at Connect.
