-Double wow! Just found out that I am one of 6 folks selected for the singer-songwriter showcase at the New Jersey Folk Festival. This is a long running, well attended and well run event and I couldn't be more honored or more pleased. - Had a fun time at Pat Salmons book release signing. Nice of her to ask me to do my Stapleton Beer song for the release of her book about Staten Island Breweries. We used to have a lot of them; maybe that is how we became the forgotten borough - New England Folk Festival coming up soon and Harbortown is all dressed up and ready to go. See you there on Friday night. - Have some ideas for my working waterfront project and am itching to start piecing them together. - putting together a recording project for the shanty session; should be a great time and a CD that will mean a lot to a lot of people; stay tuned. The session has been getting better and bigger and you should try to make it to it. - Irish Seisiún going strong as well. - speaking of which, a big thanks to Mike and Mary McVey for having Doug, Linda, and I to play at their St Patrick's party and also to play for a memorial to the Uprising at the RANDALL TAVERN on 4/ 24/16 - heading back up to Ashokan for the Local 1000 Retreat again this year and looking forward to seeing folks I don't get to see too often and to learning from those that are there - some other gigs in New Jersey in the works this year; a couple are listed and some are still not confirmed
