The State of Things, The Station and an important request.

Hi y'all


Here's some of our exciting news for the end of December. 

  1. The Peter Holsapple Combo will be performing on The State of Things on WUNC. Hosted by Frank Stasio, the show is an institution on radio in the Triangle. Our show will run Friday, December 21 and will also be archived if that's more convenient for your listening pleasure. As a longtime listener, I'm thrilled beyond belief to play on The State of Things. Here's a link to the show although you'll have to wait two weeks before we come on. Doesn't matter, it's a great show anyway, and you'll undoubtedly hear something that strikes your fancy no matter when you tune in.
  2. On Saturday, December 22 (that's three days before Christmas, don't you know), the Peter Holsapple Combo will be playing at The Station in Carrboro NC with our friends Arrow Beach, a band that features in its ranks former Stratocruiser Mike Nicholson and my ol' Baron Von Rumblebuss bandmate Tray Batson. They rock with abandon, we do too. We start the show at 9:00 pm, so stop wrapping presents for a couple hours and show up for a flagon of mead. Here's the Facebook event page until I can get the ticket link from The Station itself.
  3. VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: I need to ask a favor of my friends here. I would love it if you could cast a vote online for GAME DAY in the No Depression magazine year-end readers' poll (YERP). Here's the link. You can only vote once per email address and it must be before 11:59 pm EST Friday, December 14, but you can vote for up to ten albums. This was a banner year for excellent records, so it shouldn't be hard to come up with a few that knocked your socks off. But most importantly, since it's all about me anyway, I would so appreciate a vote from you for GAME DAY, especially if you liked the record.
More news to come, and I'll get you a ticket link for the Station show as soon as it's available. 

This was a great year, to say the least, and playing with Will Rigby and Glenn RIchard Jones in the Peter Holsapple Combo has been just amazing and fulfilling. They do good things with my songs, and I'm beyond ecstatic. 

Expect lots more from us in early 2019, some of which I'll be able to disclose in the next blog post. 

Thanks for all your support. It has meant the world to me, and it's inspired me to keep getting new music out for you to enjoy.

Sincerely
PeterH

Dinky toy, just because.

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
