The Scandinavian tour is going great. We are doing 17 nights in a row, in pretty much a different city every day, so it is physically and mentally tough. But each night, a crowd of music lovers show up, and I am rejuvenated and by the end of the show, pretty exhilarated. Then I wake up to get ready to drive to the next city and I am bleary eyed and stiff and wonder “What the hell am I doing with my life?”
And by the end of the night, I am rejuvenated and exhilarated all over again. That’s the pattern.
Luckily, I got some sleep last night. First night in 3 or 4 days with more than 4 or 5 hours’ sleep. So I am a new man. Headed from Goteborg to Halmstad. Then Falkenburg, then Skebo…then home.
Three weeks is longer than it used to be on tour. But the shows have all been great, all been unique in their own way, and we have met so many cool people who love music. And the Rootsy label is just the coolest record label in the world. They take care of you and make sure that the shows are right for you, and right for the audience too.
See you in Halmstad and on from there.
Dates for me in April:
April 12 Mucky Duck Houston TX

Amazing rock n roll soul music.
There are Emmylou Harris dates on the books, including Red Rocks with Arlo Guthrie and Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers. Festivals in Stockholm and Trondheim. And more.
Take care. Come see me.
