Around the Circle Again

Week three of the In The Round benefit series was super fun! The evening featured…

140317UCG pic8WEBLiz Chidester. A Virginia native whose tunes have an honest power, whether they’re haunting you or making you laugh out loud. She released a full-band, 14-song album last month!

I had played with each of these artists before, or seen them perform. This evening gave us all (and our audience) a chance to hear stories, ask questions, and laugh a lot.

Thanks to these folks who’ve come on board to help launch it, and to those who’ve donated, listened, and shared, and come out to a show. Two more In The Rounds to go!

Also in the next couple of weeks, I’ll be gearing up to share Seven Years on some local college campuses. Stay tuned!
