Happy 4th of July! Time for my quarterly update! Well, I try for at least that. Lots of stuff happening this summer and next fall! It has been quite a spring and for those of you who might have missed it, 5 weeks east to PA, VA, MD, OH and the DC area via, CO (yep, both directions!) in April and May to see friends, family, play music and more. 5 dances, 4 concerts, several workshops and jams! And a stop at Meow Wolf in Santa Fe - Don’t ask! Look it up and you STILL won’t quite get it – but worth the stop and quite the experience. The whole trip was so much fun we are planning on doing it again next spring! Let me know if you have a dance or venue you would like me to come to.
Summer travels have started and for the next couple of weeks, I’ll be in Santa Cruz to play some, teach, and help Emmy with a house-sitting gig. We’re scheduled to play at the Live Oak outdoor farmer’s market on East Cliff Drive July 8, 10AM-on, so come on down and hear us, have a visit or perhaps join us for a tune or two. I’d love to do some more music while I am here so please let me know if you would like to set up a workshop or concert or interested in some private lessons.
OH, and look for us in downtown Santa Cruz busking on Pacific Ave. Not sure where or when but if the weather is good and the spirit is moving we will be there. I should have some studio space in the area. We are also hoping to do some hiking and biking in the area. We will be back in Santa Cruz again towards the end of August so there is still time to set up a workshop for then.
Sometime around the 18th, we will head north. There is a possible stay in the Ashland/Grant’s Pass area again, then up to Washington state were we will be renting a house in Chehalis before going to play (and lead daily workshops again) at the Centrailia Campout (August 10-20) in, well, Centrailia, WA. Again, I will be available for lessons, workshops and house concerts.
We return to Santa Cruz right after Centrailia for a couple more weeks in the cool California climate before heading back to Tucson right after Labor Day where the Rounders already have a couple of dances and performances lined up.
The big news for the fall is England! I’ll be teaching several workshops for FAOTMAD in mid November and will post the details on my website shortly. And coming up in February a return to the Irish Appalachian Old Time Festival – yes, In Ireland – to teach and perform at that wonderful event.
Let’s call that “all for now” and I promise to get details up on the website (www.Clawdan.com) shortly. Call 412-551-0933 or email (no facebook messenger please) to get in touch.
