On March 5th the final leg of the "On A Winter's Night" concert tour begins at the Landmark Theater in Port Washington, NY, winds through New England, then California, the Pacific NW, ending in Denver on March 28th. Here's a video I made with all the details:

2020 "On A Winter's Night" Tour of Lavin-Gorka-Wheeler-Larkin & Lavin:

on FB:

It's a one-night folk festival (without the mud rain, or bugs). In the first half the five of us each do a solo set, then after intermission we are side by side by side by side. We had a blast doing nine shows together in 2019, but this is the end. The tour may continue in 2021, but both Cheryl Wheeler and I won't be part of it -- Lucy Kaplansky will take the fourth chair -- so this will be the last time you'll get to see the show in this five-artist configuration.

I produced this project way back in 1989 and my goal was always for it to be a revolving cast of characters, so Lucy joining in makes me very happy. Spread the joy, that's what I say. My theatrical and video work is leading me in a new direction, so these shows will be very special.

The album, "On A Winter's Night," is not available at iTunes -- the physical albums went out of print last year, but they have repressed a few hundred for this tour.  Hint hint -- if you get one at one of our shows, your heirs on the Antique Road Show a hundred years from now will get good news (especially if we sign them).  So don't be shy.  Signing CDs is the high school yearbook I never got to sign (went to a private school that went bankrupt -- long story).

Happy 2020!
