Three Times To See Me In November

In the coming week, I have three  shows/lectures, that I hope you’ll come out to see.

If that sounds like a lot, well, maybe it is.

But each of these events are unique. None of them will overlap, in terms of the music and the message. So, why not come to it all?

Connections “Super Hits of the 70s Part II”
Saturday, November 10, 6:30 pm
Kidd-Key Auditorium, 
400 Elm Stree
Sherman, Texas, 75090

This will be Connections’ last show for 2012. And it will be held in the gorgeous Kidd-Key Auditorium in downtown Sherman. Take a look. It’s about a 500-seat place, and our goal is to fill it up.

We’ll play and sing some of your favorite hits of the 1970s, and raise $$$ for “Imagine No Malaria.”
I get to sing all sorts of songs in this show, like “Sweet Home Alabama,” “What’s Going On?” and even “Silly Love Songs.” I’m partial to our version of “Rocky Mountain Way,” which, if I may say so, we kill.

Second Monday Series
Monday, November 12, 7 pm
Northaven Sanctuary

I’ve been a supporter of the Second Monday Series for several years, and am pleased to be a presenter.

The series invites folks from differing faiths to come and share their paths to God. I will focus on some specific spiritual practices that have been important to me…prayer, meditation, journaling, music, walking…

I’ll blend in music and times of group prayer with stories of what it’s like to try and develop a spiritual life in the midst of the hectic bustle of today’s world. It should be a special night. I hope you’ll come. Details here.

Uncle Calvin’s Coffeehouse
30th Anniversary “Local Show”
Friday, November 16, 8 pm
(doors open 7:30)

I’m honored that Calvin’s has asked me to come and be a part of the “Local Show” to celebrate their 30th year. I want to be clear that this is a GROUP show, nobody’s doing more than 2-3 of their songs. But that means you’ll get to hear from some amazing talent:
Tom Prasada-Rao
Markley and Balmer
Bill Nash
Lu Mitchell
Emilie Aronson
Wayne Green
Julie McClain

And more…

What an honor to be a part. It should be a very very special show. Details here.

What a blessing for me to have all three of these events in the next week!

Sherman may be a bit far for those of you in Dallas. So even if you can’t come, please pass the word along to friends. If you’ve seen the band, tell them they should too. This will be our first trip to Sherman and our last show of the year.

The Second Monday Lecture will, I hope, be a peek inside to my inner-life….to the extent that anyone can share that with others. I think it will be personal and intimate. Music. Talking. Prayer. Silence. I will be a wonderful night.

And the Calvin’s show will be an incredible family gathering. They’ll be a warmth and spirit there that night that you won’t want to miss, as I get to hang out with, literally, some of my favorite human beings on the planet.

Hope to see you all three places.
