June 2020 Notes

More shows have canceled in the light of the Covid -19 Pandemic and our global new normal.

Jamie Anderson and I have communicated with The Isis Music Hall in Asheville, NC and Eddie's Attic in Decatur, GA. Both of those venues remain closed as of the end of May 2020 and our June shows with them have been canceled. We might have waited a bit longer to make that decision but the reality is even if they do reopen soon Jamie and I are not insane enough to ask our audience or ourselves to gather in the intimate setting of a club venue in June 2020. Besides, we'd look pretty silly singing through surgical masks.

The short tour I have booked for September in Illinois, Minnesota, Michigan, and Ohio is still active but as we well know things can change. I will do my best to keep the events listed on my Concert Calendar  up to date. BREAKING NEWS: The September 17th Music at the Museum show in Springfield, IL, Two Way Street Coffee House in Downer's Grove, IL on September 18  and the afternoon show at Windy City House Concerts in Chicago on September 20 have been canceled. 

Meanwhile as you shelter-in-place and seek a break from washing your hands, give a listen to the We Aren’t Dead Yet Playlist on Spotify. Dianne Davidson, Jamie Anderson, and I have created a rotating blend of our music and songs near and dear to our hearts. The most recently posted list includes artists who have influenced us from an early age. Give a listen and try to guess which of us was influenced by Frank Sinatra, Holly Near, Ella Fitzgerald, or Peter, Paul, and Mary.

Many musicians are performing via live streams on Facebook and YouTube. I know Jamie Anderson and Dianne Davidson are doing so. Please support the live stream shows in any way you can.

Special shout out to photographer C. Elliot for the live shot on this page taken at the Monterey Cafe in Tucson when We Aren’t Dead Yet performed December 2019. Stay safe and keep your physical distance as you hold your friends, your chosen family, and your family of origin near to your heart.
