Caffe Lena and The Saint

Hi everybody!

I'm busy in the studio now thru May recording the new album!!!!! It is tentatively called "Old White Men", and it will be officially released in September - October. Ohhhh, but I'll have them for you to snag by late May/early June.

It looks like my Boston area album release show will be at Arlington Town Hall Auditorium on Friday, October 14th, 3 days after my birthday, and will be produced by the fine people from Club Passim in Cambridge. Why all the early hoopla?

It will be totally unplugged. No sound reinforcement, microphones, monitors. Just me, one spotlight, and my guitar for 80 minutes

I "discovered" The Arlington Town Hall Auditorium when I went there to renew the dogs' licenses. It's terrifically resonant, and I said to myself "wasn't this the way shows were done in theaters and on stages 150 years ago?" Heck, I do half my shows off of the mike anyway...So to say I'm excited is just, just, understatement is what it is!!

In the meantime, do you live near Albany, NY? Know anyone that does? Falcon Ridge folks? Because I'm at the legendary Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY:
