online show Wednesday, plus summer tour up north

Hey hey Everyone!

Stephan Crump, Jamie Fox and I (plus junior roadies Maceo and Van Crump) are about to embark on our annual summer tour to New England and Atlantic Canada, but in the meantime you can hear us from WHEREVER YOU ARE at 8 pm EST this coming Wednesday, when we play a live online show via Concert Window. It’s a fun format, where you pay-what-you-wish, (wear-what-you-wish, too!) and interact with the Trio online as you watch and listen. Sometimes Maceo and Van add their own 2¢ to the comments as well!

Aside from the fact that we will be broadcasting live from home into your computer rather than from a stage, this show is different in that the song selection will not be from my original repertoire but rather from the New Orleans songbook of the 50s & 60s. These songs and the artists behind them have been an inspiration to us, and we invite you to join us as we pay tribute and have much fun along the way. Jamie Fox will be our leader as he assembles the set list and shares microphone duties with me.

Our tour starts Friday with a house concert in Plymouth MA, and continues for three concerts in Nova Scotia before we head back down to play two early evening outdoor festival sets in Kingston and Providence, Rhode Island.

In other news, I’m honored that a piece I wrote a few years back about racial justice was just republished on the WhyHunger Connect Blog. Check it out here, and sign up for WhyHunger’s newsletter for more hopeful news about the fight against hunger and poverty. Also on the site, fans of my dad Harry are sharing memories and joining the “Giving Circle” with sustaining monthly donations to support grassroots solutions that work.

Thanks for listening!
