Twice annually I feel gifted the opportunity to perform at this most excellent purveyor of bevs, vics and tunes. What remains the altruistic and philanthropic endeavor of Ray & Ali has also blossomed into a fine and viable contribution to the local economic aesthetic.
Business the way business should be done.
Love playing my heart out in this space for these people.

Joel Cage In Concert
Autumnal Equinox Party 730pm
The Hearing Room
Grass Roots Art & Performance Center
TIX: $6 at the door.
All I can say is: this place is sweet! Beautiful, classic throwback to the days when music rooms were personal extensions of the folks who ran them. Havens for the wandering soul in search of a place to chill, sit in a comfy couch, bask in the attic-like ambience of a room full of stuff, all music and art related. You virtually cannot look in any direction without seeing something interesting. The setting this place has set is ideal for creating or appreciating the creative. It'll be a real treat to return. For anyone of you out there (I know you are~somewhere) interested in joints of this ilk, who would want to experience me 'n my tunes in what I consider my ideal setting, this is one of those places.. If you're in the area, Dew Drop In! If not, but are prone to the occasional road trip, this establishment is worth the ride. Places like this one ~ labors of genuine love ~ are rare these days, and only last for as long as public interest allows. Please show these peeps your support and help to spread an aesthetic so dearly needed in these tumultuous times.

The YURT Singer/Songwriter Series
Hosted by Back Country Excursions
Most pleased am I to have been invited back for an encore performance at this truly awesome place. Presented in the 'house concert milleu" , Your hosts, Mr Cliff and Ms Lyn, are two of the nicest folks you could ever hope to meet, and the people who gather here for these events are sure to reinstate one's faith in the inherent goodness of humanity.
Rare is the case that I would suggest anyone invest in a 'road trip' on my behalf, but if you've ever entertained the thought, this one is well worth the adventure.
Back Country Excursions hosts stay overnight mountain bike tours, and hence, there is a "Lodge" - so beautiful is this building.
Yurts can be cold, so if seasonal temps demand, the concert will be held in The Lodge - an equally and uniquely beautiful structure that will most assuredly be an optimum alternative setting for the gig.
I truly hope you will consider attending this one ~ if playing music as my life's endeavor could yield the introduction of you to these fine people and this exquisite place, I will consider it all worthwhile.
In case you didn't know:
yurt • /yərt/
a circular tent of felt or skins on a collapsible framework, used by nomads in Mongolia, Siberia, and Turkey.
Yup ~ I'm playin' a concert in a yurt.
Tix are donations at the door.
Parsonsfield is the first town in Maine right after the NH border, neighboring on Freedom ~ nice part of the world.
These people have become dear to me. In my many years as a performer, of all the places at which I have played, DRAE ranks way-high in the “all-time faves” category.
If it takes the movies to make a broad statement of that which we are all born knowing, then my hat's off too the writers of K-PAX who penned:
"Every being in the universe knows right from wrong."
These folks are most definitely doing something right.
I play here, 7-10pm, twice monthly.
Make a plan to come visit these peeps ~ you shan't be disappointed!
