December Notes

December Notes

The hills are turning white and the days are getting shorter. Personally, I’m looking forward to Solstice when the days will start growing longer. Till then (and beyond), music is my balm. Here are some dates for upcoming musical fun:

Just a November reminder, I’ll be at Bozeman Hot Springs with Cliff DeManty and Eddie Tsuru on Thursday, November 29th, and at Ted’s Montana Grill with Cliff DeManty on Friday, November 30th.

Tuesday, December 4: Music and Margaritas at Santa Fe Reds, 1235 N 7th Ave, Bozeman. Young Silas Rea will be joining me on fiddle. 6 to 8 pm. No cover, tips appreciated. Great Mexican food. Fantastic margaritas--try the Cadillac!

Wednesday, December 12: Bridger Brewing, 5:30 to 8:30 pm. 1609 S 11th Ave, Bozeman. With Cliff DeManty on keyboard and Eddie Tsuru on bass. No cover, tips appreciated. Great gluten free beers, amazing pizzas, super salads.
