Hi everyone,
In a vast blaze of self publicized or cised:-) glory. I am pleased (and perspiring a little) to announce a solo tour of the West Coast U.S.A. in February 2008.
The tour will be visiting some very small venues in CA, OR and WA in an epic of underfunding on a scale seldom seen. I hope that some of you lovely folk will pop along to spend an evening of unadulterated toetapping to musical ditties that seldom hit an airwave:-)

Gigs so far:
Thu 7th February            Shanachie Pub                        Willits CA

Sat 9th February     Mamma Llama's                       Weaverville CA

Sat 16th February    Ballard Jam House                            Seattle WA

Thu 21st February   Cozmic Cafe                                     Placerville CA

Wed 27th February  Coffee Gallery Backstage                   Altadena CA

Sat 1st March          Russ & Julies House Concert            Oak Park CA

Dates still to be confirmed in Portland OR, Oxnard CA  and San Francisco & the Bay Area CA
Also please keep an eye on the gig guide for late additions.

You can help too...:-)
I'm still looking for a few more gigs. Generally places that hold 50-120 people you can kind of see where I'm at geographically from the above shows if you have ideas for other concerts just let me know:-)

 Also if you are an artist or band and would like to do a joint show then please feel free to get in  touch either through myspace or regular e-mail at

Ticket wise most of the concerts will be in the $10-15 range some are less and the odd one is free. I have taken on these
extra shows to help bring the music to as many places as possible in the time allowed.
I hope that friends who share our common interests, goals and beliefs will choose to donate a similar sum at such concerts in order to help towards the not so insiginificant costs of the tour....but of course this is in no way compulsory.

i hope your tour goes off without a hitch! sorry you are not going to play the American southland. if you ever do, just don't do it in a traveling minstrel show. 

break a leg Mr. Young!
