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.

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.
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.

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 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.
