Howdy friends near and far, this Friday at noon, California time, I’ll be playing some songs in my backyard and streaming it live here and on Facebook. I often write outside near a cool stack of rocks which in the last couple years has been home to a den of foxes and a giant rattlesnake. I like hearing the sounds of wind and birds and chainsaws and riding mowers (white noise of the country) while I play. I’ve never done this kinda thing before but in these dystopian days I’m looking forward to sharing this spot with you through some peaceful music. Hope you can tune in
