Measure for Measure is up

Please go visit:

I'm so excited I can barely contain my joy at seeing this happen. My editor George Kalogerakis is a longtime friend who deserves much credit for making me sound more like myself. Thanks George.

Hi Peter,

Great piece in the Times. Jay Bennett is always writing in front of the soundless TV too.

Feel free to drop a line sometime.

Way to go Peter. Your writing skills are just great. I loved it. Fishing for a tune. Oh yeah

Nicely done! I had just been trying to get one of the guys that works for me out in KC to check out some dB's and the link to the NYT (with the "Black and White" link) was perfect timing. He was raving about it when I knocked off for the day - a new fan!

I was recently explaining to someone how I got to know your music (my first exposure was via the "last" [until recently, of course] and great dB's album "The Sound of Music"), when I was asked "So...what's PH up to these days?" Well, I'd last seen you and CD live at Wetlands "opening" for Hootie some years back (well, it was a CD gig with a "special guest"). What a great surprise to see you writing for Measure For Measure! Looking forward to more, of course.

You're the talk of Austin! My husband excitedly talked about your article last night and Rob Patterson mentioned his love for the article on Facebook.

Great article, Peter. I love it when the writing not only describes the process but begins to act it out. I get the thoughts and the experience all in one. Well done--and more, please!

Back in the saddle again -- new shows and updates from Peter H

  Outside The Hit Shed, Durham NC Hi everyone, Getting ready to start back up again, after a year-plus out of action onstage. I have five shows opening up for  Tommy Prine (son of John) coming soon:     August 6 - Georgia Theater (Athens GA)     August 7 - Cat's Cradle Back Room (Chapel Hill NC)     August 8 - The Grey Eagle (Asheville NC)     September 3 - 118 North (Philadelphia PA)     September 4 - Rams Head (Annapolis MD) I'm also going to open for the Connells , whose new album Steadman's Wake is superb:     September 18 - The Eastern (Atlanta GA) You all probably already know about Our Back Pages  (by Peter Holsapple & Chris Stamey) being released on LP and CD via Omnivore Recordings, but if not, here's a link to the new video for "Today Could Be the Day." The songs on OBP are from the catalog of The dB's but given new and interesting treatments by Chris and me. I've been working in The Hit Shed, my home studio, over the months, writing a

CANCELLED - the new Bandcamp single by PETER HOLSAPPLE - released today, December 3, 2021

  Today, December 3, 2021, I have released a new single on Bandcamp entitled CANCELLED.  Just to be clear, the song is called CANCELLED. There was some question on social media whether the release had BEEN cancelled, which it had not, as it was just released.  Or dropped, if you can do that with ephemeral stuff like downloads. You can buy it here .  And you can watch my lyric video here . I hope you like it.  Remember I'm heading out on a house concert tour in March, so come to a show in your neck of the woods!

House concerts, anyone?

Hi everyone, I'd like to take this opportunity to write to you about performing a house concert in your area (maybe even in your own home). Last week, I was able to enlist the invaluable services of Tina Dunn to book a tour of house concerts in early March of 2022. Tina is encouraging potential house concert hosts for me to contact her either on her Facebook page or her email . Right now, I'm also trying to come up with some bonus incentives for house concert attendees. Beer coozies are probably out, but possibly handwritten copies of my lyrics? My penmanship is still fairly excellent. I'm also going to put together a 'house concert special' CD for these show that will 'represent' the format I play in, AND you can play it in your car CD player on the way home! My plan is to play out as much as I can, as many places as I can for as long as I can and as long as there are people who want to hear me. Thanks again for staying interested in my music
