Tam Lin

I don’t often get to sing this song, partly because it’s long.

But since Halloween just passed, I’ve had the occasion to sing it a couple of times, most recently as part of the “Hoot” at Stone Soup Coffeehouse.   It’s one of my favorites, and my version is learned from the singing of the great Frankie Armstrong.

Upcoming concerts!

I’ve recorded some new songs, which I’ll add to the music page as soon as I can remind myself how.

Meanwhile I can link to them here:

“Roving Gambler” is a traditional song I recently heard from Drybranch Firesquad at the Philadelphia Folk Festival.

“By the Water’s Edge” is my latest original, written for the 375th birthday of Providence, RI.

Which leads me to the upcoming concerts:

Friday, Nov. 11, at the College Hill Cafe in the Brown University Bookstore — “Folk Music Night”, the regular monthly series that I host, will feature Charlie Cover and Kate Katzberg.  It’s free, and should be a really nice show — I think these two complement each other quite well.

The next night, Saturday, Nov. 12, I’ll be playing with Matteo Casini at the Church Street Coffeehouse in Warren, RI.

This will be a full-length show, and will be the only such show this year, as Matteo will be spending the spring semester in Italy.    The show is 8-10:15.

And then, Tuesday, November 22, I’ll be part of the gala Providence 375 Birthday Party at the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC).

6-10 in the evening.  Should be fun!   And we’ll be releasing a CD of songs about Providence recorded for the birthday.  I perform three songs on the CD, including two of my own.
