New Salem to Great Barrington - Vance Spans Masssachussetttts - Then Indy, Then Chicago

Hi Folks!!

Welcome to the list all the folks that signed up at the now dearly departed New Bedford Folks Fest, Middlebury VT, and Long Grove/Chicago area.

I've got two favorite Massachusetts shows coming up:

Sat, Aug 1, New Salem MA
1794 Meetinghouse
26 S. Main St. New Salem MA

Well, they have all kinds of stuff coming there over the summer, from Reggae to Celtic, so why not have me? While I haven't played there before, these folks are wonderful to meet so I said yes yes!


Fri, Aug 7, Great Barrington, MA
Guthrie Center
2 Van Deusenville Road
Great Barrington, MA

On the other hand, I have played here the top of every August for about a decade. This show sells out now, so you'll want to get tix early. It's nice up there, come early and drive around, or stay over nearby


Friday afternoon 8/14 Lyons Colorado
Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Wildflower Stage
Lyons, CO.

18 years teaching here and counting….and I get to play too!!

****** Special Chicago Show Announcement******
Tues, 9/29
Evanston, IL

I usually don't highlight a show that is over 2 months away, but I worked hard to get into this room. I lobbied, got an opener for Tuck & Patti a while back and murdered the room. Now I have my own night, albeit it is a Tuesday. Help me fill this room, will you Chicago? Friends bring friends and I'l give away CDs even. Free canned goods? Autographed nite lights?


Wisdum: - just got back from my model airplane nationals and I picked up some great lines on aging from some fun Old White men:

"I'm so old, I was in college when the Dead Sea was just sick"

"When I wake up, I thrust out my elbows to each side of me. If I don't feel any wood, then I know it's a good day above ground"
