We are pumped to be returning to Wayne and Sue's house concert series at Mission Coffee in Fremont.

We'll be joined by virtuoso pianist John R Burr. John was a big part of my Silver Flyer CD so we're looking forward to playing some music from the new album.

The Big Room at Lafayette Circle
Songwriter Night - 8-10pm
85 Lafayette Circle
Lafayette, CA
Price: $15

Greg and I will be joining forces with our friend and fellow singer-songwriter, Laura Zucker, for a songwriter night in our hometown of Lafayette. We will be hosting our songwriter friends "The Better Halves" (Chrissie and Jimmy Joe) who are coming all the way from Austin, Texas. They absolutely charmed us at the Far West Folk Alliance conference last fall and we hope to introduce you to them as well. We'll be swapping songs and stories for a fun and varied evening. The concert room is located behind Mighty Fine Guitars. Hope to see you there!

The Better Halves: Austin based, husband-wife duo reminiscent of Johnny and June, always making listeners smile. Chrissie and Jimmy Joe's talented story telling, clever lyrics, humorous boy-girl banter and blistering fast guitar have earned them features on "A Prairie Home Companion" and on NPR's "Car Talk".

Calaveras (Erin Inglish opening) - 7:30 pm
First Methodist Church, 201 Martina Street
Point Richmond, CA
Price: $15 advance; $20 door

Calaveras is back on stage after a nice long break to get our next album going.

On Friday October 10, 7:30 p.m., we’ll be the kick-off show of the 5th season for the Point Richmond Acoustic series at the First Methodist Church, 201 Martina Street in Point Richmond (www.pointacoustic.org).  The series is produced by our wonderful friends and musicians Claudia Russell and Bruce Kaplan.  We’ve added some new songs and will have Mark Holzinger and Sam Bevan with us.   Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door.

Opening for us will be Erin Inglish—the “California Banjo Sweetheart.”  Erin presents a “raw, sweet and sincere Emmy Lou-ish sound...[and] she makes the banjo sound like a musical instrument.”  The banjo as a musical instrument—that’s a novelty worth the cost of admission!

After that, we’ll be doing a short set at the El Cerrito Folk Festival on October 25—more about that later.
