All The Latest Music News from Tin Pan Americana Artist Breadfoot
June 2018 Edition
Day late and a dollar short again. Now uh what, 3 days into June? Actually not sure to be honest...lemme check. Yup it's the 3rd.
Made it through May. Barely. Crazy how hot it's been already. Ya know to make extra money I work some side jobs and yeah had the occasion to be up on the roof of an old Lustron home power washing and about nearly easy-baked myself.
Didn't think about ti when I started. It's only May for goodness sake. Tell ya what I got even money on 120 degrees with the heat index, being the high this year here in Carolina. My good buddy folks artist Clyde Jones, he grew up on Rocky River and been here all his life. He says it never used to be this hot. He says Mother Nature is trying to tell us something.
Know what? I believe him.
Right well important thing is I didn't fall off the roof and I'm still here. Above the dirt and doing updates.
So uh yeah May couple of shows...uhm right there was one at OPOTW in Greensboro and then one at Huc-a-Poos on Tybee Island in Georgia. That was a fun evening. Enjoyed hanging out with my buddy Jason Bible of the Trainwrecks afterward. He was playing me some tracks that are part of a trans-media project he's got in the works. Good stuff.
Uh huh. So now here we are already in June. Kicked one show already at Burger Bar. Might have mentioned Clyde saying Mother Nature is maybe trying to tell us something? Yeah well butt loads of rain the last few weeks round here and other parts and several of the roads leading to the joint was flooded out. Regardless me and Momma Molasses had a pretty good time. Always enjoy listening to her lay it down. I got a hunch she's going places.
Couple other shows this month should be good fun. Getting to share the bill with a mess of other buds. Black Mountain with jc Tokes, Knoxville with Eric Caldwell and then Huntsville with my old bud Bob Fleming and his new band.
Live in one of these towns and want more info? Well pop on over to my On The Road page and get ya some.
Otherwise working on them two new projects I've mentioned and oh yeah have a little high summer shindig I'm organizing called Hot & Blue Folk and Roots Revue. Event is a blues, folk and roots revue and spicy wing cook-off all rolled into one. It's been identified by Chatham Magazine as on of the 5 events this summer you won't wanna miss!
This is my second year throwing this party and I've hand picked some of my most favorite performers from the Triangle/Triad area and figure to feature a very special performer from Music Maker Relief Foundation, Big Ron Hunter!
I'll be posting more in the coming weeks so keep an eye on my Breadfoot Facebook page for the latest and most current updates.
Okaythen think that's about it for now.
Cheers you all!
