Autumn in Maine…
It's that time of the year. The apple pies are cooling, the leaves are turning, the pumpkin spice is in everything except gasoline—It must be fall. 

As I'm writing this, I'm preparing myself for the last boat ride of the season. For the last four-and-a-half months I have been virtually living on our boat on Sebago Lake, the second largest lake in Maine at nearly 50 square miles, but the time has come for our beloved craft named "Appoggiatura" to come out of the water for the winter. I'd like to call it bittersweet because the summer was just so much fun, but I really can't. The thought of living on land for the next 6-7 months fills me with an emptiness I never even conceived of before having a boat. 

Mind you, I know fall will lead to winter, and winter to spring, but the idea of not feeling the intoxicating, gentle rock of the waves as I drift off to sleep for so many months to come just sounds like torture after knowing the sensation for far too short a time. 

But back to reality, and back to making music, I'll persist until spring and the renewal that the wind and waves gave me will not be soon forgotten. The boat goes "on the hard" in the morning, but my heart will be afloat for the foreseeable future, as I play some wonderful fall shows from Poland Spring, ME to Schenectady and Ithaca, NY and places in between. 

This weekend finds me getting together with friends in Poland Spring at the historic Poland Spring Resort for the second annual Leaf Peeping Extravaganza with sets by yours truly, The Squid Jiggers, and the Half Moon Jug Band. Tickets can be purchased easily from Eventbrite, so if you're in the area, like pretty fall leaves and excellent entertainment at historic locations, give it a whirl. Next weekend (the 22nd, 23rd) I go on the road. I'll be stopping at the Eighth Step at Proctors in Schenectady, NY on Saturday Night and Sunday will have me on the radio playing live as part of the 50th season of Bound for Glory, the longest running live folk music radio show in the country, broadcast in front of a live audience at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY (listen live from anywhere at www.wvbr.com)To say that I'm excited to be part of these wonderful shows would be a serious understatement! 

All of this while I have taken on a new "job" producing concerts at my church in Auburn, ME, which will have me hosting some of my favorite performers including David Mallet, Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, the Wicked Good Band, Jud Caswell, Reggie Harris, and others. I am a lucky man….

In the "looking forward" file, I'll be releasing a new CD in December. A LIVE CD recorded at Baldwin's Station in Sykesville, MD. The release will be at a concert hosted by the World Folk Music Association and the show will also include some holiday numbers. 

With all of this going on, I guess I should be happy to take a break from the waves. There is so much to do to prepare! Wow!
Appoggiatura soon after launch.

Recently, Denny Breau and I did a concert together…a sort of Turkey Hollow reunion. In this photo we are rehearsing in the green room before the show.

We are discussing playing some more gigs together and releasing a new CD. Keep your eye on the website for information as it develops.
