This month I pretty much don’t have any shows booked (update: Today I booked a show with Ray Prim on Mother’s Day).

So, I’m going to support all of my friends who have made it into various songwriting competitions. This month there are 3 and I’m going to all of them. Songwriter Serenade on May 5, The Wildflower Arts and Music (Singer Songwriter Competition) on May 18. Kerrville New Folk competition on Saturday May 26. Good luck to all the contestants!

Here’s a video of me playing at Tips Concerts located in Austin, TX this past Saturday. I opened for the Ray Prim Orchestra.
