Rockin' it with Jonathan Byrd!
I got acquainted with a very colorful singer/songwriter named Jonathan Byrd over the past couple of years, meeting him at festivals we were playing at together. He was working as a duo with John Waken singing very tight harmony and playing multiple instruments, but he said they might be interested in adding a bass player for some shows. My first shot at this came this past Jan 28 when he asked be to play the sweet little Garfield Theatre in Chestertown, MD. It was a good groove and a good time and a couple of weeks later he asked if I’d like to join him for a show at the Tin Pan in Henrico VA on March 24 and tour of AK, MO, TX, and LA in the second half of May. This tour will be a co-bill with a well known Canadian singer/songwriter named Corin Raymond. I’m looking forward to really digging in on Jonathan’s material and it looks like I may do some playing with Corin as well.
