More Cheshire Moon shows to be announced soon

As you can see below I have an odd range of interests.

This LJ is mostly about the music I am involved in, including Cheshire Moon shows, writing and recording. I do occasionally write about other things that amuse/bother me.

You can download my solo stuff on Bandcamp. My My Space account has a few things to listen to. You can also find my version of Roman Wall Blues, in a demo version, in the storage space for my email list.

And now those places I've been
