UPCOMING:

2020   THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC. HINDSIGHT IS 2020!

The year 2020 was the year my career was cancelled.  In the second half of 2021  things are looking up -- sort of.  If only those stubborn holdouts would get their vaccine!   If the quarantine resumes, I invite you to visit me at You Tube for new music videos from me at home.     
Here is a direct link to my YouTube Channel
 
All my songs & albums can be purchased and/or downloaded at Amazon or Apple iTunes. 


2021
With the recent unexpected surge in DELTA covid, as we go forward into the last quarter of 2021,  it's probably a good idea to double check on current pandemic status (masks, etc.) before you head out to a show.
JM 8/25/21

There have been some cancellations.

OCTOBER 29   FRIDAY EAST LANSING, MI
TEN POUND FIDDLE Concert 7:30
https://www.tenpoundfiddle.org/  
Rescheduled from November of 2020,  45 years and still going strong!  In a new location this year: 
University United Methodist Church (UUMC), 1120 S. Harrison, East Lansing. I
Not that new -- this was the place for many Fiddle shows in the 1980's as UMHE -- United Ministries in Higher Education.  Nice acoustics, and a nice big parking lot.  Just off campus near Trowbridge Road.
NOTE: in August the board of the Fiddle created a new safety policy in light of the recent rise in COVID-19.  Before you come to the show read this:
COVID-19 Policy - Ten Pound Fiddle
