No More Podcast For Now, But New Recordings On The Way!
Last week’s podcast will be the last one for a while. It’s been really fun to try and whip up a brand new set of music every week but I’ve decided to pull back from that and focus on quality over quantity. I’m planning to focus on my weekly streaming shows (and perhaps adding to the schedule). I’ll also be recording some new YouTube videos and posting those soon. Stay safe and stay tuned!
New episode out today!
Find it here: http://www.jackdwyer.com/show
Starting this week, I’ll be broadcasting a weekly variety show from my house. Hear the first episode here:
Also, coming to a virtual sidewalk near you….
Sometime soon I’ll also be starting to experiment with some online “busking” as a way to practice and try out new repertoire. I’ll be announcing some of those here at my website.
Stay safe and stay tuned!
Live Stream Concerts
I will now be performing online concerts! I was able to get my internet connection upgraded last week, which means that starting this week I’ll be streaming live online concerts through my YouTube channel. The shows will be live stream only and not available afterwards, so you’ll just have to tune in! All live streams will be announced in advance on my schedule page, and for starters, I’ll be streaming every Monday evening from 7 to 8pm. I have missed performing for you all so much these past weeks and I’m happy to be starting back up in whichever way I can!
Jack Dwyer Show Weekly Podcast
And in case you can’t make it to the online concerts, I’ll be putting together a weekly variety show podcast and releasing it on my YouTube channel. It’s actually something I’ve been curious about trying for a while, and well, there’s no time like the present! (Seriously though! What the heck is going on?! I hope you all are staying safe and sane out there!)
And I hope you’ll stay tuned by subscribing at:
My New Virtual Tip Jar
The future is very much in flux at the moment, and we’re all navigating this new reality day to day. However, I am going to make as much music as I can through all of this. If that is something you would like to support, you can drop a few 1’s (and 0’s?) into my virtual tip jar.
It doesn’t light up like my old one, but other than that, it works the same!
Bandcamp Album Downloads
Or if you’d prefer, all my albums are now available for download (including the new one I released in January) at:
I hope you’re all doing well out there. I’m very much looking forward to playing for you all in person sometime again sooner or later, but until then, I hope you enjoy these new experiments!
Unfortunately it seems that we may all have to go without live music for a while. How long? Best answer is we don’t really know. While I have shows for this summer and fall penciled in on my calendar, it’s feeling more and more likely that those too will be cancelled… just another part of this new reality that we’re all living in. I’ll be posting updates here as soon as that starts to change. I am very much looking forward to a day when we can get together for live music again.
I’ve been thinking a lot about all of you, and this great community that we have. Wishing the best for all our venues, festivals, and organizations. I hope we can all find a way to help each other through this crazy time.
Thanks and stay healthy,
Just wanted to let you know, I have some new videos up on my YouTube channel: new solo videos, and four videos from a July session with Bobby Winstead. Drop by youtube.com/jackdwyermusic to watch! Check back soon for more new videos, or subscribe to my Youtube channel to receive notifications of new video posts.
A good review for our first official release!
Bobby Winstead and Friends
When You’re Here For Christmastime
Giant Killer Records
“…Bobby Winstead and his friends provide us with some quality Christmas entertainment. The songs are well written and aimed at fans of those old-style Christmas LPs of yesteryear. This is a Christmas release but anyone who like, “real” country may well enjoy it. Hopefully in the future we can look forward to lots more Bobby Winstead albums.”
