Welcome to my new blog! Bard of the South! Alas, my Southern Missive is at an end. Now, though I’ve retained the posts (searchable) of the Southern Missive and attached them to this blog, I begin a new blog, hoping to do a better job. My calendar and my Facebook page and Facebook Fan Page will keep you advised of my schedule. The Bard of the South blog will focus on interviews, reviews, song lyrics, and various posts about my work as a songwriter, storyteller, folksinger, and author. 2012 looks like it’s going to be my best year yet. In 2011, I made over 150 presentations to schools, libraries, organizations, at festivals, and author events. This year has already started off more fiercely!
I hope to have some interesting musicians, actors, songwriters, artists, and creative people featured, so please, check the blog often!
This Tuesday, I leave with my friend, Jed Marum, for a 7 day tour to Okeechobee, Florida and back. We’ll be performing at O’Dalley’s Irish Pub in Mobile, Alabama Tuesday Night. Then we’ll be at the Battle of Okeechobee Seminole War Reenactment Feb. 4-5. I’ve attached that flier for you. Then we perform at the Keg and Barrel Brew Pub in Hattisburg, MS on Tuesday, Feb. 7; on Feb. 8, (Wednesday) at the Natchez Coffee Company (Natchez, MS) for lunch, then Enoch’s in Monroe, LA from about 8-10 p.m. Thursday night, Jed and I will be at Fenians Pub in Jackson, MS. As is typical when we tour together (this is our third tour together), we try to pack our schedule full. Jed is an internationally known and respected Celtic and Civil War folksinger, with a wonderful voice and a mind-boggling finger-picking style.
