Tonight: Happy Birthday Party Variety Show!

Ahoy! Tonight is my happy birthday party variety show at Bernard’s on Seneca (the coolest dive bar in Seattle), and you’re invited. We are having some of Seattle’s best singer-songwriters entertain us, the cheapest booze in town to warm us, and Phil (rock-and-roll cello wizard) will join me on a few songs too, rad times guaranteed!

Friday, April 3
Bernard’s (basement bar of the Hotel Seattle)
315 Seneca

See you tonight!


Johnny Cash

I’ve been talking a bit about Johnny Cash in my shows lately, and today is his birthday, so I figured I’d dig up a performance of his you’ve probably never seen. Johnny Cash used to have a great show on TV where the best music artists would come on and perform and often duet with him. This is a great performance of him from that show with another of my favourite artists, Gordon Lightfoot:

I’d hate to think of what music would be like if Johnny Cash hadn’t ever lived. So I won’t.

Happy Birthday, Johnny Cash, and thanks for showing us how it’s done.




When George Harrison died I went into a week of mourning. It would be difficult to overstate the impact the Beatles had on my life. This is a song that I really dug off the first solo record of his that I bought when I was a kid. George, wherever you are, I’m drinking a toast to you right now, thank you, and happy birthday!

Happy Birthday Paul!

Today, Paul McCartney turns 69 years old, and he still rocks like a mad mofo. As a songwriter he’s very important to me, he’s the best and I still learn from him every day.
