It's a big week. This Saturday is the (FREE!) taping of Songs at the Center TV. It's broadcast to over 150 public television stations, and it's being taped at Marietta's beautiful Peoples Bank Theatre. I'm so honored to share the stage with WV jazz legend and Mountain Stage pianist Bob Thompson, WV's favorite troubadour Todd Burge, and singer-songwriter host Eric Gnezda. I've worked up two new originals just for the occasion. Here's a sneak peek at one:

You can reserve a seat in advance here.

We just had a broadcast of Mountain Stage recorded here, too. I never imagined I'd get to walk a few blocks down from my small-town house to experience stuff like this. I get to end the weekend watching Kurt Elling and Branford Marsalis on the SAME STAGE the very next day. Front row. Is this real life?


I was also honored to be part of a series our local papers are doing on artists in the area. Here's the Parkersburg version. And here's the Marietta one.
