House proud

I did a search on "holsapple" on Google blogs today, and look what I found!


That's my house, courtesy of Virtual Globetrotting. In our never-ending quest to know every jot and tittle about everybody else on Earth, this site was a no-brainer. My house is toward the end of sixty-seven pages of Homes - Celebrity - Entertainment - Musicians. That's over 1600 houses, all over the globe. Many are former residences (divorces, deaths and changing fortunes) and many are palatial, especially on the first few pages. And many belong to people you really didn't ever think much about in terms of their domiciles, in the world of 'cribs'.

My house is not a crib. It's just a house. I love my house, and I don't care who sees my back porch, honestly, especially in this high-flying bird's eye view. You can't see the tomatoes growing or the pyramid of clay pots. Some virtual map images have our old cars, long since sold or towed away. You also can't see the brush I have yet to clear or my brand-new driveway-length oil leak (now repaired).

It's a little weird, to find my house within the Celebrity - Entertainment - Musicians domain. I've always thought I've flown somewhat under conventional radar in that regard, but someone deemed me worthy of an entry, I guess, and the back of my house is now immortal in a tiny corner of the computer screen.

Hey. I can see your house from here.

that is a compliment that your house has been 'celebrity tagged.' Nice pad!

  Outside The Hit Shed, Durham NC Hi everyone, Getting ready to start back up again, after a year-plus out of action onstage.

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
