Come Hear (& See) Me This Month

August tends to be a busy time for me. I have two and a half gigs left.

On August 4, I’ll be playing a 2-hour slot at the New Carlisle (Ohio) Farmer’s Market. Yes, this is hardly a music tourism destination, but it’s good practice for me trying to capture and keep the attention of people who came for other reasons. I’ve done it once already this year, and am looking forward to two more times: August 4, 2018, 10:00AM-Noon and September 15, 2018, 11:00AM to 1:00PM.

On August 11, I’ll be presenting a workshop on autoharps at the Madden Road Music Fest, in Cable, Ohio. To prepare, I’ve been stocking up on unusual instruments and fixing up some of my “fixer-uppers” so everyone will have a chance to try out these great, under-rated musical instruments.

In addition, on August 25, there’s a slightly more structured, one-hour outdoor gig at “Dayton Porchfest,” a neighborhood-wide festival where musicians of all kinds set up on people’s porches and provide multiple simultaneous concerts. That event starts at 1:30 PM, August 25 in the St. Anne’s Hill Historic District of Dayton, Ohio. Google “1306 E 5th St, Dayton, Ohio 45403” to Mapquest the location. I go on at 4:00 P.M.

If you miss all those, there’s still the September 15 Farmer’s Market (listed above).

Have a great rest of the summer all!
