It's autumn again -- my favorite time of year in Boise. It seems like a few years have passed now where we haven't had that classic fall season, though. The one where the summer heat breaks in late August, and the breezy, cool blue-sky days seem to last from the first fruit off the trees, through the reddish-orange progressive painting of the leaves, and clear past Halloween sometimes all the way to Thanksgiving.
This year, I have a feeling it's back.
And to celebrate, I've helped put together a musical celebration of the season. The show, called "Music Of The Harvest," is Saturday, October 13th, at the Visual Arts Collective (VaC). Showtime is 7:30. More info available HERE.
I'm on stage first, with a short solo set, followed by a great touring string band called DumpTruck Butterlips, and then the band of a new friend of mine, Andy Hackbarth, whom I've gotten to know over the last couple years at some of the booking conferences. We both played a showcase last year at ArtsNorthWest in Eugene, Oregon. He played right before me, and I remember remarking to the crowd after I got on stage after him, "All this time, I never knew I had a little brother." Definitely kindred spirits in the music world.
So that's where you'll find me -- either out in the sunshine, kicking through the fallen leaves on these gorgeous Boise fall days, or at the show in the evening, weaving music from the Harvest.
