Wide Awake Citizens!

Greetings from the snow-cone of winter here on Chequamegon Bay. Last Saturday we performed a Cabin Fever Reliever concert at the Harbor View Event Center in Washburn. It was a great night, great crowd, great show with a wide variety of original songs.

Next up is a show on Valentine’s Day, Thursday, February 14, 7:30. Candy, dance and flowers! It will be an evening of great love songs old and new.

Looking ahead we are presenting my show Song For The Wild, a musical/history portrait of Sigurd Olson, one of America’s great environmentalists of the 20th century. Along with readings from Sigurd’s books, I put music under his words;  performance is a matinee on Sunday, March 10 at 2:00pm.

A highlight of our last year’s concert series was the Brokedown Blues Fest put together by Otis McLennon who was on the road with his group Otis & The Alligators for 25 years. His original group returns along with Javier Matos on Friday night. Saturday’s line-up begins with The Jane Gang from Superior featuring Jane Aleckson who performed on bass in my show Play Ball. The Jay Stulo Band follows Jane and then our headliners Reverend Raven and the Chain Smokin’ Altar Boys featuring Westside Andy will close the night. We will have two dance floors, and food will be available both nights. It will most likely sell out so GET YOUR TICKETS NOW! They can be purchased at: www.brownpapertickets.com

I thank those of you who have purchased my new book of my poems To Praise This Amazing Air.

Keep in touch,  WPN
