Dave News - DC this Weekend & Kerrville Mainstage in June

Hello good people of this amazing world,

Please forgive me, for it has been a while since my last missive to you all.

Before I get to the gigs, let tell you what's been going on--

Okay, before I get to the rest of the gigs--

Sundance was awesome.  Mary Pittari (my wonderful manager) had set me (and Amy Speace and Eric Schwartz) up with a whole mess o' gigs and I played my tuchus off.  Hardly had time to see a film, but we met all kinds of great people, not just indie director and music supervisor types, but also a lot of folks from the greater SLC music scene.  If things go well, we may even have some interesting developments to share with you further down the road....

Also, I just got back from the Folk Alliance music conference in Memphis.  Had a brief bout with Murphy's Law, as Northwest Airlines bashed my guitar that was gate-checked in a hard case.  Also, the Marriot did a rather exceptional job of losing my bag with all my gear in it --harmonicas, tuners, pedals, cables, and my cool new iPod that my brothers gave me for Christmas.  But would I let this keep me down?  Not a chance.  A big thanks to Amy Speace for the loan of her Taylor, and her band, and...well, her; a big thanks to Taylor Guitars for the loaner and the awesome meal at Cafe 61; and...  Well...okay I'll spare you the visuals, but harmonicas:  An intrepid thank you to John Wort Hannam.  You sir, are a brave, brave man....

Anyway, despite the bout o' murphy's, I had a great time and loved (nearly) every minute of it.

Oh yeah, and I am now free to tell you.  Yours truly will be playing mainstage at the Kerrville Folk Festival on June 3.  Right before the headliner, baby.  (I'm going to have a band and this world will never be the same.)

Okay, one more thing before the giggage.  My aforementioned wonderful manager sent me this link.  I'll forward it on to you, and if they take the page down, I'll put the contents at the end of this missive-becoming-tome....

"What's Up Next on the Doug Lewis Show"

Carly Simon's 'Into White'

Feb. 13, 2007 - Tune into the Doug Lewis Show on WVGN 107.3 FM from 2 to 4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 18. This Sunday we will feature music by Carly Simon, Dave Crossland, Norah Jones, the Grandsons, Irma Thomas and more.

[that's right, Carly Simon, Dave Crossland, Norah Jones, etc.  Read on...]

The Modern Music Feature CD is "Into White" by Carly Simon. Carly's latest release features renditions of songs from some of her favorite songwriters, including tunes written by Paul Simon and her ex-husband James Taylor. She also includes a very nice cover of a Harry Belafonte hit. Her son, Ben Taylor, and daughter, Sally Taylor, help out on some of the tracks.

The Indie Spotlight CD is "Pearl" by singer-songwriter Dave Crossland, who is a talented new voice on the contemporary folk scene.

We play new music from Norah Jones, Greg Greenway, Anne McCue, Eric Bibb and more.

We also include music from Steve Earle, Ringo Starr, Otis Rush, Eddie Kirkland and others.

We celebrate the birthdays of Robbie Bachman of the Bachman-Turner Overdrive, New Orleans artist and Grammy winner Irma Thomas, Frazey Ford of the Be Good Tanyas and Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek. We celebrate Yoko Ono's birthday with a trilogy of songs written about Yoko.

Congratulations to Randy Shaw, who won two tickets to see the Amadeus Trio at Tillett Gardens last Wednesday.

We include music from the Grandsons, who will be touring in the Virgin Islands from mid-February to the end of the month. We also include music from Sara Hickman, who will be performing on March 14, at Tillett Gardens on St. Thomas.

We give you a chance to win the new CD release from blues artist Charlie Wood and CDs from singer-songwriters John Brannen and Michael Jonathon.

Doug Lewis Show is underwritten by Hook, Line and Sinker; Molly Molones; and St. Thomas Radiology Associates.
