Earlier this week I visited Mass Appeal, a morning NBC TV show in Springfield, MA. You can now check it out below, my live performance of the song “Delusional” and interview as well.
Last night I had the great experience to play at the Holly Springs Cultural Center. I was invited by The Swedish Consulate of Raleigh, SACC and SWEA and the night was a total hit. Holly Springs Cultural Center is a beautiful building and it’s always a treat to get to play in a theatre environment, built for performances. (Check out all the pictures from the concert here)
After the gig the local restaurant My Way Tavern treated us to a great dinner so that was really awesome! If you ever go there I recommend you try the meatloaf! Yum!
I hope to be able to come back to Holly Springs in the future! Tonight (April 20th) another great venue is awaiting us in Black Mountain, NC. I really look forward to playing at White Horse, Black Mountain and hope to see you there!
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.
Here’s some upcoming dates on my tour that you don’t want to miss, visit my gig page for all listings:
Alabama: The Gnu’s Room April 7th (Auburn)
Georgia: The Sentient Bean April 9th (Savannah)
North Carolina: Bottega Art Bar and Gallery April 12 (Wilmington)
Playhouse 211 April 13 (Southport, buy tickets here)
I just did a couple of radio shows in the heart of sunny Mississippi. College station Souther Miss Today invited me to play a few songs and tell their listeners about the tour and Jackson station WLEZ fm had me play a song in the studio too. Here’s some pics and a little video from my performances there. Unfortunately there’s no online archive to listen to, but tune in to the stations anyway to enjoy good music and more.
