November’s been a busy month with shows in Seattle, Bellingham, Everett and Vancouver, BC.

Bellingham bassist, Jeff Gray (formerly with the Dusty 45’s) joined me on upright bass for a post Halloween duo show at the Kulshan Brewery which was a blast.

The Ladies First III show last Saturday night at the Madison Avenue Pub in Everett was a great success.

The venue was packed and the women being featured, Cindy Lang, Mary McPage, Sherry Roberts Greims, Lori Hardman delivered strong sets of covers and original material.   I rocked out in the middle set on slide with my original tunes and the backup band with Brian Butler, guitar, Paul Quilty, bass and Wayde Leslie, drums was really solid.   And I have to thank Paul not only for sharing his birthday with us, but for creating a really cool poster that audience members had the performers sign. I love the shared show idea as it makes for an entertaining night for audiences who get to support their local favourites and to check out artists they’ve never heard before.
