Greetings everyone. Word just came down that a song I wrote and recorded about my great Aunt Lil’ is gonna make it to the air waves and streams this Sunday night, January 15, 2023 at 9 pm eastern when Jon Stein hosts, The Hootenanny Cafe. The song is, “Lillian & the Blue Car.”
This Saturday, February 5, I’ll be performing at Grinder House in Crossville, Tennessee. It will be for the 4th annual Tennessee Songwriters Week, a celebration of song, one of Tennessee’s greatest exports to the world. The performances of songwriters across the state will be judged with winners from six showcase events heading to The Bluebird Cafe on March 20.
Greetings from Liberty. Live music is returning to public places. It certainly never left here at our home. The guitars and banjos have been picked, plucked and strummed on most days since the middle of March last year. They have helped deliver new songs, tunes and twangs. But much of the homebound music making is about to head back to public places. It’s gonna be sweet.
The music is going well with tracking new songs for a new record. I tracked last week with a drummer named Joe Allen and we had a big time. Joe played some great stuff on a song called, “Onions, Old Movies and You,” a song I co-wrote with Geoffrey Himes.
And speaking of new records, many of you know I recently announced a new record I’ve released, The Craig Demos on June 18. The physical CDs arrived on July 1 and I wanted to let you know they are available now from my website. Please visit and have a listen. I hope that you enjoy it. These are recordings I wasn’t thinking about releasing when I tracked them, so this is my first unintentional record.
