Vance - circling back thru Husdon Valley and Philly area, and Other Stuff!!

Hi VanceFans,

May and June I am working aplenty, and hopefully coming somewhere near you -

Thurs, May 19
Lansdowne Folk Club
Lansdowne PA
(this Thursday!!)

Missed me at the Tin Angel last month? Didn’t get enough? Come to this sweet suburban gig with plenty o’ free parking and far fewer steps!!. Plus, you get your folk thing on on a school night, then you get to brag your unlucky co-workers that you saw me with the incredible David Jacobs-Strain opening and it wasn’t even Saturday. What?


Sat, May 21st
Ivy Chord Coffeehouse
Reading MA…/ivy-chord/upcoming-concerts
Not far from my house!! I’m inviting everyoone over after….well, maybe not, but this stalwart coffeehouse is really 14.3 miles from my house.


**Sun May 22
4 PM
Piermont, NY
The Turning Point

Did you miss me last week at the Clearwater Coffeehouse? Want to see me at 4 on a Sunday afternoon sans the old liberal hippie sing-along? John McAvoy, proprietor, keeps having me. An incredibly intimate room where I can let music fly! I’ve done so here for nearly 25 years.


Sun, May 29
Kerrville, TX.
Kerrville Folk Festival & Song School!kerrville-folk-festival-line-up/hno2w

Possibly the greatest music festival ever. On the night I play you can see Mary Gauthier, Ruthie Foster, Slaid Cleaves, and Terri Hendrix, all tremendous artist friends of mine. Then a mess of us teach songwriting during the week with Grammy Nominated Steve Seskin as our leader, for like $250 meals included!!


Sat, Jun 4th
Framingham, MA
Amazing Things Arts Center

Look at that long-assed link to this place! It has to be Amazing! It needs a long link because it’s an art gallery, community center, comedy showcase - a cony-coppiah of things it does! it’s a dot org place to boot!


Fri Jun 10
Peekskill, NY
Paramount Hudson Valley Theatre (W/Paul Reiser)

Paul keeps inviting me along to open for his shows. What, am I going to say? No? Pfffft…


Sat Jun 11
Tuckerton, NJ.
Lizzie Rose Music Room @ Village Bicycles

Need I say more? A folk venue that doubles as a bicycle shop. But this place aint no fly-by-night pedal-chain affair…Marcia Ball, C.J. Cheniere, Roomful Of Blues, NRBQ, all are up coming. And me. I’m so there. So are my friends opening, Penni & Tony of Folkapotamus.


Fri Jun 17th
Ann Arbor, MI
The Ark

I fly in and out for just this one show. That’s how important this place is to me.


Yes. Still teaching/coaching songwriting, performing and such (you like my songs right? Well, there’s stuff I can show you…). Get in touch with me.

Quote of the day comes from my good friend Livingston Taylor who was commiserating with me about the IRS and their targeting of musicians:

“Just becasue you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that they aren’t after you”

PeaceNlove everyone,
