Musical Mischief and Mayhem in Midwinter
January is usually a pretty slow month for us professional musicians, but this January seems to be an exception to that rule.  At least for me.  I've got loads of dates, as usual, up at, but here are some highlights that, barring an epic blizzard, I'd love to see some friendly faces at!

201 Prince Street
Alexandria, VA  22314
7 to 9 pm

Tickets -- $10

Another concert featuring my ground-breaking collaboration with world music percussionist Tom Teasley (see above photo).  Due to our conflicting schedules, we aren't going to do too many of these performances, so catch us when you can!

1529 16th Street, NW
Washington, DC  20036
