Mark your calendars for this day. Something very nice is going to happen at Carrollton Station in New Orleans that night.

Care to guess what that might be?

PS (11.7.08) sorry Jeff, no H-Bombs/Cigz, but the other guesses are correct.

If it's a Continental Drifters reunion, I may have to make the trek south from bluegrass country....

Could it be??? Sounds like something Continental.

If it's a Drifters reunion, I'd say that would be excuse enough for a road trip from Chicago. Hope so!

bringing the may day parade inside for a 32nd anniversary show? are the cigaretz & h-bombs playing?

So, who is going to be in this version of the Drifters? Vicki?
Mark? Robert? Not Susan or Russ?
What about Ray? Who on drums?

The Vermilion line-up.
Ed Ward said…
Oh, man. Transcontinental road trip!

That Chicago road trip idea sounds like a mighty fine one, especially since the date coincides with the Jazz & Heritage Festival. My gal and I are going to bring a posse from Chicago (and perhaps Minneapolis).

Peter, you've made an old guy very happy indeed. Expect a few Boston folks in the house.

I promise not to regale you with another off-key rendition of "Vatican Blues" in advance of this one.

I'm definitely excited for all us Drifters fans, for Peter, and just excited to drive down HWY 57 to go to New Orleans and see the city - oh and I'm going to the Jazz Fest too!
This will be my second trip to New Orleans. We are going to be cutting it close as far as the Drifters concert goes but I have every intention of being there! You Go Peter! Full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes !

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
