During the year I play mostly around New England and New York. Each summer I go on tour. This summer my tour, across the northern tier and Canada, is titled SONGS FOR BEAUTIFUL SOULS in memory of five youngsters killed in a car crash in Vermont last October. One of these children, Janie Chase Cozzi, was a student in my history class and a player on the soccer team I coach. My shows are solo acoustic. I play Taylor and Martin guitars and a Washburn banjo. I employ both a BOSE L1 PA as well as a JBL PA for backing tracks. My set for this series and tour (which begins on March 23 in Montpelier, VT) includes 22 original pieces and 8 covers. If an establishment is not ASCAP licensed or prefers I do not play covers, I add a few originals to round out my set. For this tour I will not accept payment for appearances - I do ask however that establishments allow me to pass the hat and/or sell CDs as a fundraiser to help support the families and communities impacted by last October's tragedy - Our goal is to purchase Mad River Park for youth soccer in the Mad River Valley. This is where Janie and her friends played soccer growing up. Click HERE for more information.
