Note: The following schedule is more or less correct, but I’m not always prompt about updating this site. My Facebook page tends to list special events; also check the print edition of the Peninsula Daily News in the Spotlight section on Friday as well as the PT Leader (Jefferson County only). The most reliable schedule is in my email calendar, sent out roughly once a month: Click here to send me an email to be added to my calendar list.

Solo classical and jazz guitar

  • Every Monday from 5:00-9:00 at Alchemy ( – 842 Washington St, Port Townsend – 360.385.5225). Alchemy is a wonderful romantic restaurant in Port Townsend, next to the Galatea fountain at the bottom of the steps to Uptown – near the Rose Theater.

  • Saturdays once or twice each month at 7 Cedars Casino ( – Route 101 in Blyn) in the Uncorked Wine Bar next to the main entrance.

  • Various other area venues; see my venues page for location details.
