Dec 13, 2019: I'm writing you from Fulong, a fishing village on the northeast coast on Taiwan, a place my heart sails to sometimes when I sleep. I've been holed up here for a week and a half, writing the book to go with the new album, and god, is it ever good to be back... read my words from the road
Elated to be wrapping up the tour among friends at Auckland Folk Festival!!! My concert's Saturday from 2-3pm in the Main Marquee, and I'm also playing a 25 minute slot as part of a showcase concert starting at 8pm Saturday night, and on Sunday at 4.30pm in the Barn I'll be singing songs in the round with Erin Cole Baker and Celtic Ferret. Couldn't ask for a better way to round out this trip :)

Dropping into the mythical Kraken for another Shake Sugaree Residency night with my pals Jonathan Byrd and the Pickup Cowboys! The show runs 7-10pm, and I'm singing somewhere in the middle. There's no cover charge, but there'll be a hat passed around, potluck snacks, and a rare, big-tent magic in that roadhouse by the highway. If you're too far away to get in the thick of it, you can tune in online! Jonathan streams every show on YouTube, Facebook, Periscope (@jonathanbyrdmusic), Mixer (ShakeSugaree), and
Twitch (PickupCowboys), as well as on the etheric plane.
