Amidst all the band rehearsals and 7" release stuff, I've been booking a small handful of solo shows. Typically the set length is much longer than what we've got prepared as BEAR, so it makes sense that I go at it alone. Anyhow, some exciting news came my way last weekend. On Saturday July 27th, I'll be playing Thirsty Pagan Brewing from 6-9pm. Joining me on stage will be none other than Northern MN folk and blues beast Jim Hall on lead guitar. Jim's the man who inspired me to venture down this Americana music road and I couldn't be more happy to have him beside me, giving my songs the same color his have had for the last 40 years. Is it the end of July yet?
