Fall 2021 Musical Things To Enjoy

Hello, it’s me. I’ve been mostly absent from the internet, enjoying music, family, food, frisbee, White Sox, books, some vacation, and well…real life. I have some performances this fall to let you know about, after a long hiatus.

Saturday Oct 2 – Jarvis Square Pottery 1439 W Jarvis (773) 655-7197 The first Saturday monthly residency in a great listening room. I’ll play solo for the first one. Music starts at 8pm, with two 40 min sets. Must be vaccinated & masked indoors BYOB; suggested donation. There will be a nice outdoor area with a speaker to monitor the music as well. (also appearing on Sat Nov 6th with a special guest TBA)

Friday Nov 12 – Old Town School of Folk Music in Szold Hall Tom Ryan’s record release show with Dan Holohan Band opening. 8pm show vaccination required & masks (unless something changes).
