    Fall Dates in SF and NYC

    Dear Friends and Fans,

    Last summer I drove many miles, learned about many kinds of music, in many languages. I deepened my handle on the guitar, rediscovered the piano, and settled as a percussionist and harmony singer. I kept writing and recording — but discovered a new joy in delving into the Brazilian repertoire and branching out to American country and pop.

    There has been so much music in the air that I’ve hardly had time to email you. But fall is upon us, and it’s time to harvest what we planted. So here are some fall shows in San Francisco and New York City. Most are Brazilian, many are free.

    The main attraction is a pair of tributes to the amazing Brazilian songwriter Caetano Veloso with a full band (on Sat Oct 27 in SF, and Fri Nov 23 in NYC). If you can only come to one, make it one of those! And if you’re not in SF or NYC, consider passing on this email to friends who are.

    With deep thanks,


    * First, the Big Event, a loving tribute to the incomparable Brazilian songwriter Caetano Veloso, at my favorite small listening room in the Mission:
