VANCE DOES HIS HOME STATE...THE ALL PENNSYLVANIA TOUR (except for one small nice festival in New Jersey)

Hi everyone. I'm hoping you're back to a reasonably manageable routine after a thoughtful and peaceful weekend of remembrance...

The new recording OLD WHITE MEN (https://vancegilbert.com/index.php?page=nimbitshop) is now available in all formats, including CD. The cover/artwork is great, thanks to Jane Hallman.

Friday, October 14, 2011 in Arlington, MA "Old White Men" CD Release Concert at the Arlington Town Hall, The Robbins Memorial Town Hall Auditorium [http://www.clubpassim.org/]. I will do the whole night with one light and no sound equipment…a real acoustic concert…

A New Rant was just posted that is mercifully shy of Airline Profiling Debacle details. Well, there's a bare few...[https://vancegilbert.com/index.php?page=blog&display=2286#offset1]

I've got shows coming up, and they're all in my state of birth!!

I love Lili Anel. She's a great singer songwriter, and has made a few of my Tin Angel shows pretty special by opening them. So when she asked me to play this benefit - Musicians For Children's Alopecia Project ("CAP") Benefit 2011 - I just couldn't say no.

I love this place. They treat me to the best Vietnamese food, then I get to play music in one of the most notable bookstores in North America. I end up bruised form this gig as I am constantly pinching myself.

Thanks for supporting acoustic music, particularly mine -Vance
