Head over to Twitter or Facebook for updates from the road. Somerville was a blast, ragged but right. Dan Kaplan sat in on a couple of songs and he and Will Levith rocked up “High On The Plains” with me. I heart Portland. I always have a good experience in that town. This time, I backed up a couple of poets before starting the LS set. The new sound system was a joy and I played a more contemplative set. We hustled through foliage country and were nervous that we’d arrive too late to play. Radio Bean turned out to be a great spot and I played a few traditional folk and blues songs: “St. James Infirmary” and “Oh Babe It Ain’t No Lie.” Next up: Saratoga Springs, NY.
