Greetings from Birmingham, England! I’m over here getting ready for a Friday night (March 5) performance with the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. We’ll be performing the “John Lennon Songbook” – a performance conducted by John Wilson and featuring Claire Martin, Mark McGann, and little old me.
Greetings from Liverpool!
I’m here in Liverpool this weekend to sing John Lennon songs with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Ochestra on a great day of remembrance and celebration: John Lennon’s 70th birthday. I can’t begin to express the thrill that I feel being here for such a momentous occasion. The shows have been sold out for ages, so I won’t bore you with trying to sell you tickets, but if you have a moment this Saturday, October 9th, and feel so inclined, raise a glass and toast the memory and legacy of one of the great human beings of the 20th century. John Lennon was not just a brilliant songwriter and musician, he was champion for peace and justice in a time when he could have just been sitting back and counting his money and resting on his laurels. Cheers, John! Here’s to you, Walrus. Happy Birthday. Goo Goo G’joob…
ON HOLIDAY – SORT OF…
Well, I’m back home after a wonderful sold-out summer tour of the UK and Germany, and I’m going to take a couple weeks off to hang out with my family, get some sun and ride my mountain bike. Thanks to all of you who made it out to the shows this summer. It’s always such a thrill and a privilege to play music for you. (Check out the great Ronnie Scott’s London review in PRESS)
Anthony Doerr is one of the world’s finest and most highly acclaimed writers, and he lives among us, right here in Boise, Idaho. He’s also one of my ski buddies! Tony’s new collection of short stories, Memory Wall, has just been published, and it’s fantastic. There’s nothing quite so magical as hearing a great writer read his work aloud. This will be an evening to remember, despite his questionable decision to invite me to appear with him! I’ll be there with my guitar to sing a couple songs and have a chat with Tony about the creative process…
