Updated: 20 November 2021
I am slowly returning to having a post-Covid performance schedule on the Olympic Peninsula. Past venues included local restaurants and bars, festivals, farmers markets, casinos, and other area events and private parties. I'm not yet venturing past the Peninsula except for weddings and private parties.
Note: See my venues page for location details.
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. 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 and First Friday from 5:30-8:30 at Alchemy (AlchemyBistroAndWineBar.com – 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.
Notes on past venues:
I played at Ichikawa in Port Townsend every Thursday for two years; that ended in 2013.
I played at The Fireside in Port Ludlow every Thursday for three years; this ended in June 2016.
I played at 7 Cedars Casino in the Wine Bar for several years; they closed the wine bar in 2018.
I played frequently at Tizley’s in Poulsbo, Rolling Bay Winery on Bainbridge, West Side Pizza in Kingston, Old Alcohol Plant, Port Townsend Vineyards, Disco Bay Detour, and many other area locations. All that was interrupted in March 2020 -- but some venues are resuming in late 2021 and early 2022.
Other music styles
Although I'm not currently playing other venues or styles, you may have seen me at familiar area locations.
I’m part of Olympic Express Big Band, which expects to resume performances in 2022.
For a decade I played Tuesdays at the Port Angeles Senior Center with The Cat’s Meow Swingtet, a jazz quintet playing swing-era dance tunes. No news on restarting, but it’s expected.
Appearances with Ranger & the Re-Arrangers, Shantymen, The Long Splice, THAG Jazz, TNT Jazz Guitar Duo, Lush Life Jazz Trio, Jim Charlier, Roger Ferguson, Mick Nicholson, Buck Ellard, Mark Schecter, Mike Horsfall, Rex Rice, Craig Buhler, The Cat’s Meow, and other soloists and ensembles.
