Summer Shows

Hey all – happy summer!

Aside from returning to the Crested Butte Songwriter Festival this August, I’m mostly sticking to the Peninsula this summer.

I’m playing Second Sundays from 6 to 8pm in the Rook at the Castle in Port Townsend, and I’m playing Sunday afternoons with Bobby Winstead at the Anchor Pub on Water Street.

Keep an eye for other shows in and around Port Townsend, and check my schedule for all dates.

Last Stream (For Now)

Hey all,
May 20th will be my last weekly stream for a while. Thanks to everyone who has tuned in the past year! It has been pleasure to hold down the bandstand and play for you all during these strange times. Look forward to seeing you in 3D sometime soon. Keep an eye out for some spontaneous summer streams and maybe something regular again farther down the road. Also, I’ll be using my evenings to start work on some new albums. Join my mailing list if you’d like to hear about it all!
Thanks,
Jack

The Return Of The Gigs!

Hey all,
I’m thrilled to make the announcement that for the first time in nigh on a year, I have a gig! (A few in fact!)

I will be breaking the ice by performing a duo set with Jonathan Doyle at the Keg and I on April 3rd from 4-6pm. It’s their reopening, so please come by the back porch for some physically distanced socializing.

Check my schedule page for info on my other shows in April and beyond:
