I, along with a couple of friends, will be previewing and road testing
some selections from my forthcoming album "People, Places, Things."
This will be a more acoustic band show than you've seen me do in a
while (or ever). I've played a handful of these new tunes in recent
shows, but not the ones that lend themselves to the full band format.

Then my buddy Jim Pfitzer will perform his one man show "Aldo Leopold:
A Standard of Change" as a preview performance to his show at to
Bonnaroo this year. Both of these shows will be unique and fun
experiences. You don't want to miss this.
