February gets a bad rap

It's February! 

Now, I know most people are just not that excited about this second month of the year, given its reputation for cold temperatures, dreary skies and that famously depressing, disappointing, or delightful (depending on who you ask) holiday named for a 3rd century Roman clergyman who lost his head for Jesus… 

Personally, I love February. I came into the world in February, and though my birthday is dangerously close to that famous martyr's feast day, sharing my personal spotlight with Saint Valentine never bothered me one bit. Perhaps the heart-shaped birthday cakes my mom used to make for me helped, but I've always found plenty to love about February – chocolate, snow, gradually later sunset times, a convenient excuse to tell people how much I love them, and of course, an abundance of RED, which has always been my favorite color. 

This February, I've got a handful of shows to add to that list of things I love. This weekend, I'll be happily reuniting with my NO FUSS AND FEATHERS bandmates for two shows in the sunny South – Atlanta GA and Bluffton SC – then sharing the bill closer to home in Belmar NJ with wonderful young songwriter named LEAH THOMPSON. All the details are below, and I hope you'll stop by if you're in the neighborhood. 

And if you're not, well, why not invite me to YOUR neighborhood? I play house concerts, too, and it's not so hard to host one if you enjoy the music and have a handful of friends you'd like to share it with. Drop me a note and I'll be happy to chat about it. 

Anyway, many thanks for sticking with me and reading this far. As always, please check the SHOWS page on my website for details on upcoming performances, and stay in touch on the socials (links below). 

Until next we meet, may you enjoy all the good stuff about February, and none of the bad, and as always -- good health, good music, and
