Kerrville Folk Festival

I’m very happy to announce we’ll be a part of a great lineup for the always magical Kerrville Folk Festival this summer- our set will be on Saturday June 8. Get tickets for the festival here.

Professor Longhair at Tipitina’s

For Mardi Gras, I’ve been listening to a lot of the great New Orleans musicians Fat Domino, Dr. John, and Professor Longhair, so I did a sketch/watercolor of Professor Longhair from a performance film and interview he did in 1980 at Tipitina‘s, two days before he died. His piano style blended blues, rhumba, and calypso […]

McGonigel’s Mucky Duck on Saturday Feb 3

Just a handful of seats left for our show with the band at The Duck on Saturday. Though the sign on the place is beautiful, we’d rather have you indoors with us. Tickets are here.

McGonigel’s Mucky Duck

McGonigel’s Mucky Duck. My sketch/watercolor of the landmark venue for songwriters in Texas- opened by Rusty and Teresa Andrews in 1990. On their grand opening night, Jack Saunders, Shake Russell, and Dana Cooper performed. When the band and I play there on Saturday February 3 (show tickets), I’m happy to say Jack will be onstage […]

Guero’s Oak Garden

The Guero’s Oak Garden: My sketch/watercolor of the spot where – in 2 weeks – the band and I will be performing for a crowd of 200-year-old oaks (and younger people) as part of Sun Radio‘s Texas Radio Live broadcast. Can’t think of a better place to play old songs and the songs from Rings […]

The Shape of Maryland

Maryland has a lot of waterfront. You realize this if – like me – you decide to try to draw the outline of the state. Next weekend, I am playing two shows in Maryland at Delmarvalous Americana House Concerts and Macum Creek Concerts. You are welcome to join us. I drew two guitars on the […]

Sam’s Burger Joint

New Year’s Resolution: I hereby resolve to play songs at Sam’s Burger Joint with my friends on Thursday, January 4, 2024. You can get tickets here.

Fork in the Road

https://youtu.be/TAS9DXHAI18 On Saturday mornings when I was a kid, I would watch cartoons for hours. My parents said if you watch too much of those, you’ll turn into one. They were right- I did turn into a cartoon character. This short film was made by the creative folks at Collection Agency Films, and that’s me […]

Beautiful Accidents

https://youtu.be/PIWPfkzuUK0 I’d like to propose a toast to the people who made this day and every other day possible for us — cheers to our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. The 8 adorable people I sketched above are your cousins (we’re all cousins) and my great-grandparents. Somehow they got together long enough to make this conversation […]

Dosey Doe

I love seeing the neon sign of a welcoming place in the night. In my experience, all the people at Dosey Doe, from the sound engineers to the waitstaff to the owners, go out of their way to make sure folks have a great time any night you’re with them. We’ll be playing an album release […]
