Video from Farewell Show

The rain held off, it wasn’t too hot, Alex Wilkins played a great set, and the stars converged for my “classic trio” to all be available for one more show before I left town. Here’s the link for my Youtube video.

Seth’s a busy guy, and Charles lives in NYC now, but both were in town and it was great to play with them again. This show concludes the period 1995-2011 that I’ve lived and performed in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Thanks to all my friends, fans, and students, plus my mom (who came from the coast) and my girlfriend (who came from Charlottesville), it was great to have you there to see me off!

Technical footnote: the video’s super dark, and half of the last song is cut off, but we did get over an hour of the show. Who knew Youtube allowed such long uploads now?

Next time you hear from me, I’ll be in Keene, New Hampshire. Off now to eat breakfast and keep on packing!

NC Farewell Show

In a couple weeks, I’m moving to Keene, New Hampshire to be with my sweetheart Sarah, who’s finishing grad school up there. I’ve lived in Carrboro since 2000, and first moved to Chapel Hill in 1995. It’s been a long time!

On Saturday July 23, I’m playing a farewell show at the Open Eye Cafe in Carrboro. The event starts at 8pm with Alex Wilkins, from the band Tripp. After that, I’ll play an acoustic set with upright bassist Seth and (visiting from NYC) keyboardist Charles.

If the weather’s good, we’ll set up out back on the Open Eye’s patio. It’d be great to see you at this little party. Cheers!
