   This is a relatively new endeavor in the Village of Ossining to support local arts and artists. This was a great evening: great turnout, artwork on the walls by photographer Robert Olsson and a night of originals and covers by yours truly.


On Dec. 13, I was part of the annual Tribes Hill Solstice Celebration, held at the Common Ground Coffee House locale in Hastings. What a great evening with many stellar musicians contributing to celebrate the season in song.



The Green Growler is a great craft beer and wine bar in Croton, NY. Good friend Frank Migliorelli (Frank Migliorelli and the Dirtnappers) MC's a singer/songwriter event there each month. I split the bill with Steve Chizmadia, another Hudson Valley songwriter. A grand time was had by all. Thanks to everyone who stopped by.


Past Shows​ and venues where I've performed :

Tribes Hill Presents : This was a musical evening of Hudson Valley singer/songwriters in the first of a series at Embark Peekskill, a great performance venue in the heart of downtown. Thanks to all who came; it was a great time and I was happy to be a part of this first-in-a-series concert.

July 30th, I' was at Birdsall House, another of the premier music venues in Peekskill, NY. Known for its craft beer menu and locovore, gastro-pub cuisine, it continues to attract crowds from all over the lower Hudson Valley for its eclectic menu, its ever-rotating draft brews and its friendly, knowledgeable staff. Music started at 9; went on past midnight.

​Gleason's is easily the best of the several new hot spots in downtown Peekskill for good food, good music and good cheer. I' was there on Friday, June 12th and will be back in August or Sept. Music starts around 9. Flatbread pizza, craft beer, good people.

On Sunday, Dec. 20th, I was pleased to have been a part of Hope Machine's "End-of-the-Year-As-We-Know-It" Hootennany at the Embark Performance place in Peekskill. And what a hoot it was. Pictured L. to R.: Fred Gillen Jr., Susan Fisher-Wright, me, Craig Akin (Roosevelt Dime,) Steve Kirkman, Abbie Gardner (Red Molly.)

Friday, May 29: I did a short set at the Yorktown Elks Club. This was a benefit to support the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life; instead of running, they sponsored a 24 hour open mic... I kicked  the whole thing off at 5:15 pm. 

On Sunday, July 26, I' did an hour long set at 8 pm during their singer/songwriter series. This is a great venue in Riverdale, known for their Irish music and local artistic talent. Slainte.

On Saturday, October 31st, I' did a couple early sets of blues oriented folk-rock with a healthy dose of pumpkin-infused, Halloween music for a return engagement at the historic John Jay Homestead in Katonah, NY. All songs were 100 % organic and heart-healthy. My set was from 9 am til 10:30 am.
