THE BLOOD PUDDING TOUR

England felt downright balmy after the blustery bite of Berlin. Jean jacket weather. I was giddy and ready for a walkabout.



My British manager, Lee Williams, had booked some shows in London and throughout southern England and I dubbed it The Blood Pudding Tour, named after that breakfast delicacy pretty much unknown to us Yanks.



No need to recount each show but some highlights shine more than others.



The Halfmoon Putney is a wonderful, old pub in South London… Continue

The muse, nurturing creativity, making mistakes

It's Spring and beautiful with azaleas blooming everywhere and a full moon this week!



Thought for the day; "It's all about the mistakes."



Tom Waits, my hero, espouses this sentiment in an interview in "Innocent when you dream", a book I'm currently reading. He also likes to consume music best heard through hotel walls and mitigated by traffic noise and noisy air conditioners. I think it was Miles Davis who said "play it twice, and it's not a mistake anymore." For me it's… Continue

Cafe Noodle - The Story So Far

A few weeks ago we thought we'd try something - an online venue based around a "ning" network. So I posted out to some of our friends to see what would happen.



It's been great really - friendships have been made and in a very short time I think its become a remarkable community which I am very proud to be part of. Some great collaborative projects have happened and some brilliant points have been… Continue

BELFAST TO BERLIN

BELFAST TO BERLIN



It was like God was twisting out the water from a wet, grey flannel blanket the day that I arrived in Belfast. February 25th, 2010. The good news was that The Crown Bar was directly across the street from my hotel.



I had read about The Crown in one of my favorite novels, "Gospel" by Wilton Barnhardt, and the old place certainly lived up to its convivial, venerable hype and it might almost live up to its claim that it is, as their t-shirt declares, 'The… Continue

Excited to return to Europe for Summer '10 tour!, Smile, it's good 4 U!

Did you know that that timeless song "Smile (though your hear is aching)" was written by Charlie Chaplin for the movie Modern times in 1936?



Michael Jackson and Nat King Cole both did popular versions later. My favorite is by Madeleine Peyroux.



Did you know that smiling is beneficial to your health?



I looked up the health benefits after reading Thich Nhat Hanh's book Being Peace, which reminded me of the importance of meditation, breathing, and smiling. I… Continue

Swedish leftwing swing band Cats and Dinosaurs looking for gigs in northen Germany october/november!

Hello!I am booking concerts for Swedish leftwing swing band Cats and Dinosaurs Germany tour, and it would be great to add some house concerts to the tour!
