It’s been an amazing late Summer/early Fall already—wonderful shows at City Winery Nashville (with uber-talented friends Tommy Womack—back sounding and looking great after his big accident—Marshall Chapman—Matraca Berg!), Moonlight on the Mountain in Birmingham, Wash Hole Jam in Brewton, AL, The Hub on 30A and Bluegrass on the Beach in Destin, FL!
Getting ready for my 2015 Americanafest show tonight—Wed Sept 16 7PM—at the awesome new Family Wash in East Nashville—on a killer bill with Kim Richey, Jeff Black, Sam Lewis, Dean Owens and Phil Madeira—and yes, I am playing with my band—Phil bringing band too—and yes, I’m sitting in with pretty much everyone!
Then I’m off to Atlanta/Decatur for a Willie Sugarcapps show at Eddie’s Attic! Then Willie C Sugarcapps plays Bristol Rhythm and Roots Festival in Bristol TN/VA!
Lots of big stuff coming up—if you are interested in what the new Willie Sugarcapps album sounds like, there might just be a pre-release copy for you—but only if you come to a show!
My Live at Coast DVD/CD is set for November release! I am also preparing to take pre-orders in late October—very excited as this is my first live solo album—lovingly recorded at legendary Coast Recorders in San Francisco to analog tape through a magic Neve mixing board in front of an intimate live audience. AND it’s my first official DVD release, captured by a five camera crew. I’m very excited and it’s a long time coming.
Yes, I’m thinking about a vinyl release of the audio. But first i have to release the DVD and CD package. It’s going to sound and look lovely.
I’ve been writing a new album with Brigitte Demeyer. We’re planning to record as soon as we have a full record’s batch of tunes. We’ll tour together in 2016.
Writing with the great Radney Foster too!
Been writing all this week with Dean Owens, who is over from Scotland. If you missed his “Into The Sea” record—get it today—what a beautiful collection with Dean’s best singing to date–and that’s saying something—the music is special too. Great band and perfect production by Neilson Hubbard. Oh, and I played and sang on the whole thing…I’m biased but can truly recommend this to anyone who loves great music.
OK—gotta get my proverbial shit together for this show tonight!
