Hey all, 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.
In the meantime, the show must go on! Check out my latest post to find out how I’ll be making music going forward:
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.
Hey all, Hope this update finds you off and running into your new year. Seems like this winter just flew by, but I have been busy with lots of music and we know what they say about time flying… So anyway, here’s what’s up:
This January I released a brand new album, recorded last year with good friend and usual suspect Bobby “Boom-Chuck-Norris” Winstead. It features seventeen old-timey duets and is called To The West. It’s currently available exclusively on Bandcamp, check it out:
In the last few months I’ve uploaded a bunch of new videos to my YouTube Channel, including original songs, performance demos, practice sessions and more. Check it out, and if you like what you see, please consider subscribing to my channel over at:
Now, I wouldn’t trade the life of a performing musician for anything, but once a YouTube channel reaches 1,000 subscribers it is eligible to monetize its videos and earn money when people watch. Not that I’m exactly aiming for YouTube stardom, but as they say, “every penny counts!”
Here’s one I uploaded today… I wrote this song years ago and everyone always asks me which CD it’s on, and I always have to try and explain why I haven’t recorded it yet, so I’m very proud to present to you the first ever (and by no means last) recorded release of “The Devil’s Lullaby” and “The Dance of the Dream Eaters:”
Also worth checking out, new Jack Dwyer Trio videos:
And my new bluegrass project:
Visit my schedule page for all show listings, but here are some highlights:
I’ll be performing in a production of Always Patsy Cline at the Key City Public Theater in Port Townsend. The show runs every Thursday through Sunday, all April and through the first weekend in May. Get your tickets here: https://keycitypublictheatre.org/
I’ll also be down in Salt Lake City for a week in May, so keep an eye out for a possible show or two there.
And of course, Mondays at the Keg and I are still going strong:

Hey all, 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.

Hey all, Hope your 2019 is off to a good start. Don’t know about you, but mine has been flying by! (As evidenced by my lack of posts so far this year). So I figured it’d be good to check in and let you know what’s up.
Looking forward to all of the music I’ll make in 2019. Here’s a preview:
The Keg and I
Mondays at the Keg and I are ongoing – come by any Monday from 5 – 7 pm to see me and a rotating cast of guests from around the Sound and beyond. Check the schedule for more info.
I’ll also be starting up a few monthly gigs on the Peninsula including First Wednesdays at The Ajax Cafe, Third Fridays at Finnriver, and Second and Fourth Tuesdays at The Valley Tavern. Again, please check the schedule for more info.
Keep your ears open for some new music! I am tempted to gush but for now I’ll just say that I’ve been working on something for quite a while now and it’s almost done! (I think, haha). It’s called Over The Sea.
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.”
