The joyful day!

And I'm on the road ...

or just about to be

Just a little less than 8 hours in front of me. This is the longest drive I do.

I set up set lists yesterday ... I'm doing two completely different shows for a total of almost 30 songs. Yes I have my cheat sheets set up.

If you're bored ... I will certainly be bored today ... so give me a call.

And hopefully see some of you at Conestoga
The joyful day!

Conestoga !!!

where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain

I'm here ... that is a long drive. Just got back from opening ceremonies where they let me play a song ... thanks so much for that. I did WYSIWYG and got some nice laughs. I also talked about Tom Smith, and directed them to the benefit information.

I have a show at 8:30, and another at 1 tomorrow. Tonight my set finishes shortly after the Yard Dog Press party starts, so I can actually make it for once (I have this history of being up against the YDP people, but not in a fun way)

Anyway, saw a lot of folks already. This should be a nice weekend. More later.
The joyful day!

THAT was fun

Maybe the most fun show of the year. The audience was all over it the whole time. There were a couple of folks who talked (as usual right down front) but that was copeable. Everyone played along, there were lots of laughs. A fun, fun, fun show. I can't imagine tomorrow will be this good, but I hope.

Marilyn Monroe (Dan Bern)
In Crosby Park
Trophy Wife
The Woman I Want
Color Of Your Eyes
Hey Dad !!! (complete with the rudest Osmond joke ever, in honor of the twit who disrupted my show last year, it damaged some people)
Standards
Low Self Esteem ...
Hides - With Cedric from the Bedlam Bards on fiddle, and a fellow named Russ (who works with the Bards sometimes, and played with Cedric tonight) on bodhran (he stepped up as Cedric and I were just really taking off, and spurred us on even more). One of the best versions ever as far as I am concerned. I would doff my cap to them if I was wearing one. Thank you so much for making it such a great closer for the show.

I'm going to go check out con suite for a bit, then head to bed. More tomorrow.
