Makin' music at the Mudpie

Come by, have a bite and enjoy!

I’ll be sharing the stage with Charlsey Etheridge (bluesy acoustic pop, a la Sheryl Crow) and Brandon Maddox (clean-cut country, with a tip of the hat to George Strait). Like me, they're "ex-pats"--former Chatt-areans now living in Nashville. Come witness the homecoming!

BTW, the Mudpie is surrounded by shops full of those items women describe as "so cute" and men "thatsnicehowmuchisit."

For the ladies: a Breath of Heaven

Here's one for the ladies...or for the guys who see no irony in Frasier Crane's affinity for bath salts and aromatherapy. Contact my friend Diane to purchase. (Click the pic for details).

Give love, give time, GIVE5

I'll be playing this very cool event on Sunday Dec. 13. My half-hour (give or take) set starts at 6pm at Market St. Tavern. GIVE5 is a 4-venue, nearly-all-day fundraiser. Proceeds will help support a couple of families who are in transition out of homelessness. A mere $5 gets you in any or all venues you choose to go to, for the duration of the event (1pm to around 9pm).

I'll be following an electronic music outfit called Digital Butter. Can you say "palate cleanser"? Vive le diversité!

Here's the website; check out the video that describes the purpose and history of GIVE5.

Here's the list of venues:
Market Street Tavern
850 Market Street, Chattanooga, TN 37402

Tremont Tavern
1203 Hixson Pike, Chattanooga, TN 37405

Bessie Smith Performance Hall

Catch me at the Celtic Cup

Come by, grab a cup of something warm, and sing along as the holiday mood strikes you! Assuming you recognize the songs. I’ll have Kathy Von along; she’s a very talented singer/songwriter with a mesmerizing voice. Happens to be from South Africa originally, so I was very glad to meet her when we ended up in a writers round a few weeks ago at the Commodore Grille. (Did I mention I've been to South Africa?).

AND we’ll have Dave Mohr on guitar as well. A veritable party unto ourselves! But you’re welcome, too.

Friday, Dec. 4
6:00 pm to closing at The Celtic Cup Coffee House
106 North Anderson Street, Tullahoma, Tennessee 37388
