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 and recording new songs, as well as doing online sessions for a bunch of artists. And a couple of weeks ago, I got to record new songs for Florence Dore's upcoming album, Highways and Rocketships, at Fidelitorium, Mitch Easter's extraordinary studio in Kernersville NC, alongside producer Don Dixon, lead guitarist Mark Spencer (Son Volt, Blood Oranges), bassist Jeremy Chatzky (Bruce Springsteen, Ronnie Spector), and my old pal Will Rigby on drums. The last bookings at the Fidel before the pandemic were the beginnings of the album, and we were also the first back in the studio! Release date for the album has not been set yet, but stay tuned on Florence's social media, and she'll give you the head's up.

And not to be too oblique, but there will be some interesting news on The dB's' front later this year which should delight you, as it has us!

Much love to you all, thank you for your patience; I hope you've stayed well, happy and creative throughout this trying period. 

Let's rock again soon, shall we?

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
