It’s been too long since I played with these wonderful musicians. I’m leaving town again right after this, so carping the diem to make some sweet music. It’s a real listening room, in a lovely old town house in Chelsea, hosted by a couple of serious music lovers – I’m very happy they are hosting this…

How long has it been since I was in SF? So long I can’t even remember! Really looking forward to playing, singing, and catching up with everyone there… I’ll be delving into the Leishman Songbook archives as well as hopefully airing new ones, plus the odd Brechtian and/or music hall digression. Many thanks to the fabulous Beth Custer for hosting this.
I have the great good fortune to have been offered a 3-week solo residency in March, at the Morris Graves Foundation in Fortuna, CA, to start work on a new piece. A new year, a new beginning…
