The Vance-Gets-Around: MA, NH, TX, OK, VA

Hi All,

Holy Smokes! That's some routing ain't it? Who booked this? Where's that agent?

Speaking of whom, me and The Roots Agency are coming up on or #2000th booking together. There's a career in there somewhere. Thanks Tim and everyone at those offices for facilitating me doing this for a living.

I've got a string of favorite places to play coming up:

Friday, April 13, 2012  
Uncommon Coffeehouse
First Parish Church
24 Vernon Street
Framingham, MA

This has been a favorite Boston outskirts place to play for me for years. They were one of the first New England Coffeehouses to have me, and I played here for the first time in 1992, so I guess it's a 20 year anniversary show of sorts...

Saturday, April 14, 2012  
Simple Gifts Coffeehouse / Unitarian Church
58 Lowell Street
Nashua, NH

Heading north to another stalwart New England Coffeehouse that hosted me the first time a good few years ago

Then it's off to Texas and Oklahoma:

Wednesday, April 18, 2012  
Dosey Doe Coffeehouse
25911 I-45 North
The Woodlands, TX

This is a premiere acoustic music club about 30 miles north of Houston. It's new to me, but the reviews are nothing but raves from performers and patrons alike!! Miss me, Houston? Here I'm is AT!!

Friday, April 20, 2012  
Uncle Calvin's Coffeehouse - North Park Presbyterian Church
9555 North Central Expressway
Dallas, TX
w/Ellis Paul

I haven't shared a music night with my best friend Ellis Paul in ages. Along with the Kerrville Folk Festival, this is my Texas home. Get tickets early, as this will be a surefire sellout…

Saturday, April 21, 2012  
The Church Studio
304 S. Trenton Street
Tulsa, OK

This is a new place for me, and there's something about Tulsa. Check out the 5th line of my song "Ten Thousand Skies".

Then Virginia:

Friday, April 27, 2012  
Ashland Coffee & Tea
100 North Railroad Avenue
Ashland, VA

This'll be the third time I've played this charming spot. I love Kay (the owner), I love the sound system, I love the crowded room that generally greets me, and I love their sandwiches. What else is there?

Saturday, April 28, 2012  
Jammin' Java
227 Maple Avenue East
Vienna, VA

Yeah, 10 years to the day. All kinds of folks will be there to celebrate - folks that have seen Vance at Wolftrap with Anita Baker and Aretha Franklin, Jammin' Javaites from over the years, even fellows from the local model airplane club (anyone knowing me knows that's no joke!!)!  This is another fill-quickly show, so you'll want to get tickets early. Bring more than 4 people and there are free Vance CDs and other premiums to be given away!!

It's a busy month, there are new tunes (some so fresh there will be big sheets of paper…) and I'll thank you to tell friends where you aren't but where they are that I'll be in town.

I'll see you somewhere, thanks, and Peace to you all. -Vance
