weekend shows

Last week was a whirlwind of shows for the Bottom of the Well, Spider Cider, Kristen Ford Band tour, it was a lot of fun! It was also completely exhausting to play with three different bands (genre-wise, not personnel-wise) every night, so it’s been nice to be back in Boston and not sleeping on friends’ floors. It’s also been really exciting to have CDs for both Spider Cider and Bottom of the Well to share with folks at shows (I’ll be putting both online as soon as I can, along with some photos and videos from the tour, so stay tuned).

Now that I’m back in the area, I have some upcoming shows in town this weekend:

Tomorrow (Friday, April 27th) I’m playing with the Boston University Choral Society at Marsh Chapel starting at 8 pm. The concert will feature John Corigliano’s Fern Hill and Gabriel Faure’s Requiem.

Saturday afternoon (April 28th), I’ll be joining Kristen Ford down at Boston’s City Hall to play a short set as part of the Unite Against the War on Women rally happening all over the country. There will be speakers and music performances from 10 am until 2 pm–Kristen and I will be going on around noon. I’m even playing electric bass for this show, so I don’t have to lug the upright downtown, that’s pretty much a once-a-year event in itself.

Then, on Sunday (April 29th), Frank Drake and Cold Chocolate are teaming up for a show at Sally O’Brien’s in Union Square, so there’ll be a nice mix of bluegrass, western swing, and funk. Show goes from 5 til 7 pm.
