It is an exciting time here. There is the new album, World Famous in Bloomsburg, which will be out in November. Last night I was the featured reader at River Poets in Bloomsburg. I played 3 songs, all of them classic Halloween-ish poems.
The Cremation of Sam McGee, by Robert W. Service, played as a happy banjo tune.
The Raven, by E.A. Poe, done as an early Bob Dylan song. (This took about 12 minutes, and would have been longer with a few good harmonica solos.)
Death, by Emily Dickinson, to the tune of the Gilligan’s Island Theme Song. (Try it! It works!)
Tomorrow, a mini-tour of northern Columbia County, starting with the Camp Lavigne Wine Festival from 10am-noon.
Then a quick drive to Forks Farm, where I’;ll play at the market from 12:30 to 2.
