Hey all…this Friday/Saturday, May 21/22, I’ll be playing at this club with my old compadres John Starrett on bass and Marc Johnson on drums, from 9-12.
We’ve played many gigs together over the years, and they are my most favorite of musicians. We’re going under the name the Cane Shakers, and we even have our own personalized canes for the event, ha. We’ll be doing blues, jazz, country, and who knows what else. My first show in over a year, and greatly looking forward to it.
The club is at 32nd and Zuni, next to Tony P’s. We would love to have you there, and promise some high quality music.

Hey all…I’m going to be on the KGNU Kabaret show this Tues, Dec 8th, from 7-8 PM Denver time, playing 5 of my compositions; one each in 12, 19, and 34 tone equal temperament, and two on electric 7 string fretless guitar. This is usually a live show, but this time we recorded it in advance, and I am indebted to several people for their help and expertise. First, Richard Townshend did the filming/audio at his casa. A very comfortable environment for me to play in; then figure in the great pizza he made for us before we got to work, and it was a perfect evening. Dan Wilging (aka Big Daddy) from KGNU, was on hand for between song chats. Dan and I have done many shows together over the years, and he’s the best DJ/interviewer I’ve ever worked with. He asks perceptive questions that allow me to dig in and explain just what I’m doing with the various microtonal tunings, which can help folks with the unusual tonalities they’re hearing. Then, KGNU’s George Figgs, engineer extraordinare, did the editing from Richard’s videos to get the show on the air. Can’t imagine anyone I’d rather have at the controls. I had 4 songs from various Kabaret shows on my latest CD, “Radio Waves,” the quality is unmatched.
And yes…we filmed the pieces for a possible future DVD, but we’re just using the audio for the show. I’ve also included a link to KGNU’s Facebook page: https://fb.me/e/1FG4pqoX4 I’d be delighted if you shared this with FB friends. This is my first show since last January at Swallow Hill, and I practiced aplenty. I’m amazed that I can find new ideas in pieces I’ve been playing for years. Music is a never ending story; always new mountains to climb. Hope you can tune in, and wishing all the bestest for 2021…HHH

Hey all…greatly looking forward to ringing in the New Year at my January 25th Swallow Hill show in the Tuft Theatre. I have a new CD, “Radio Waves,” and I’ll be playing music from that, as well as some other goodies I’m working on. I plan on playing 12, 19, and 36 tone guitars, fretless guitar and banjo, as well as Oud. Maybe I’ll bring some others as well. I’d love to see a bunch of you there, I promise a rather interesting and unique evening of modern music. Thnx for all the support over the years…till soon…Hstick
Really looking forward to this show. I’ve known Paul for many moons now, but this will be our first gig together. Paul’s a virtuoso harmonicat, and he can go a down lot of different avenues. Nic and Ronnie are top blues players; between the 3 of them, they’ll cover a whole lot of territory. I’m honored to be a part of this. Expecting guest artists and jamming as well…hope to see you at the Bucket.
