Happy July!

At the risk of oversharing, I am thrilled to report that my musical month kicks off this weekend with two of my absolute heroes-- Richard Thompson on 7/2 at the Narrows Center and Bob Dylan on 7/3 at Foxwoods!  I'm sorry to report that RT is already sold out, as is the Newport Folk Festival-- BUT a few Dylan tickets are still available. There is also heaps of great music right here on Aquidneck Island this month-- and some of it is even FREE. So read on, I hope that you will find some shows to inspire you, as RT and Uncle Bob inspire me!  

Happy 4th, Have Fun!
 and if you please...
