UPDATED JULY 2015--Two great gigs in August!

Well, hey there! Sorry for the delay in posting my summer dates, but if you have read my message page, you are already aware that I am in the midst of moving--kind of a big deal after 36 years in Colorado. Sheesh! Where does the time go anyway?

And speaking of time, yes--the schedule looks alarmingly empty at first glance! But there are now TWO gigs confirmed for August, and as far as the rest of the month...a blank page represents unlimited potential to the artist heart. I have already met a number of wonderful musicians ready to make introductions on my behalf, and I have met several presenters who have expressed an interest in hosting my music, either at a local watering hole or a house concert. Things are coming together--very grateful.

Meanwhile, my first priority, and the reason the gigs have been in the back seat is that I do not wish to add the word "homeless" to the front half of calling myself a musician--who wants to be a walking cliche for crying out loud!
If you are coming to the Gorge area--feel free to send me an email...even if I am not gigging during the time of your visit, I might be able to steer you in the direction of some good local players to listen to! This is a vibrant scene, and summer is just getting warmed up!!

NOW FOR THE COOL BIG NEWS about the two August gigs below: I have a new musical cohort up here in the Gorge!

His name's Kit Garoutte...check out his site:

So--for a number of upcoming gigs, I am teaming up with Kit, an astonishing guitarist who also writes and sings some really really good stuff! The gig on August 1 will be at a brew pub in The Dalles--about 20 miles west of Hood River. We'll mix up some cool covers with our original stuff, and I plan to be sure and just turn Kit loose for a couple of his mind boggling instrumentals. Can you say Tommy Emmanuel? Michael Hedges? Did I mention harmonies?

For the second gig--we'll be playing a house concert at the home of my friends Bob and Alexa in Mosier. For?that?show, we will be focusing pretty much entirely on original stuff,and?we will showcase a number of new songs that we'll be saving especially for the house concert. In other words--the show at Bob and Alexa's will definitely include quite a bit of music you will?not?have heard at the previous event. We are also looking forward to a more pristine listening environment at that show, too.

Here are the details:

Both gigs are duo gigs--featuring myself and Kit.

SAT AUG 1 FROM 6-9 PM at The Rivertap Pub in The Dalles

703 E. 2nd Street, The Dalles  PH 541-296-7870

Full menu, big selection of interesting beer, NO cover charge!

SUN AUG 16 early evening, in Mosier OR

A VERY special evening of original music, hosted by our good friends Bob and Alexa. We invite folks to gather and schmooze at about 6:45, and the concert will start promptly at 7:15, ending right around 9 PM. It won't be a late night...Honest! This will be BYOB, and we plan to provide some yummy desserts to enjoy while schmoozing. $10 requested honorarium for this one, folks. Money back guarantee if you are not satisfied! To reserve your spot, please email me. I will provide you with details, location and so forth! Seating will be limited so that everyone is comfy. Please bring a folding lawn chair if you can! There will be plenty of shade, and we have a plan if it rains.

Kit and I have more gigs in the works, for later in August, and I also have a couple of solo things coming up at Clocktower Ales (The Dalles) in September, so be sure to check back soon.

Thanks again, AS ALWAYS for your patience and support during this transition. Good things are happening....Nancy
