It's been a while since I have posted on this page and it's not because there is nothing happening. Quite the opposite, I've had a very musical few months since I last posted, but I have to post now because I'm excited about two shows I'm playing this month. As you probably know, I have been playing in Ben Rudnick and Friends since it began 10 years ago and I'm happy to say that we're having our 10th anniversary show at the Regent Theater in Arlington, Mass. on October 24th. We will be having many special guests and it's going to be a great time. Check out benrudnick.com for more information. I am very excited to tell you about another show that I have been trying to set up for a long time. Lichen will be opening for Silk City at the Timberlane Performing Arts Center in Plaistow, NH on Friday October 29th. For those of you who aren't familiar with Silk City, I can tell you a little bit about them. Di and I first got to know these guys back in the 1980's when they were in Tony Trischka and Skyline, one of the most amazing bands I've ever seen. Silk City is Barry Mitterhoff, Danny Weiss and Larry Cohen. In addition to Silk City, Barry has been playing for the past few years with Jorma Kaukonen and Hot Tuna. He will also be sitting in with us and we will have our good friend Ben Rudnick playing with us for the entire set. I really hope that everyone that reads this tries to make this show. Timberlane is where I teach every day and it would be great for us to get a good turnout at this show. Please help us out and spread the word to anyone that you know that would like to attend. I guess I've gone on long enough. I'll try to post here more often. Thanks for reading.
