Part One of the Summer Tour 2017 has come to an end

It was excellent fun playing at Spring Gate Winery (Harrisburg), Chambersburg Memorial Park, Center Stage at Hershey Medical Center, the Meiserville Inn, Juniper Village in Lebanon, York's Box Lunch Revue in Cherry Lane Park, the Baltimore, Swinging Tern (East Hanover), Richmond and Harrisburg Contradances, St. Thomas Roaster Coffeehouse (Linglestown), the Bullfrog Brewery (Williamsport) and the Juniata Valley Winery. My thanks to all the folk at those wonderful venues, especially to Hank Imhof for setting things up (twice!) at Spring Gate, Seamus who joined us for a song at the Med Center and Miranda and everyone at the Meiserville Inn for sorting things out! Thanks also to everyone who came along to hear us play - without you we wouldn't be there! And my thanks to the Launies, Unbowed and Medicinal Purpose for the music and to Henry for everything - the arranging, the schlepping, the accommodations, the chauffeuring, the patience and the hanging about while I didn't feel too good!

And I didn't mention WEEU (Reading) - the Launies had a great time being filmed and recorded there. More news about when you can hear and see us just as soon as I have the details.

Next up:

Look out for Jamie playing in the baggage claim lounge at Tucson International Airport
He'll be there next on Wednesday, September 6 and again on Wednesday, October 18 singing some of your favorite songs over the lunchtime

Sunday, September 17 - 7-9pm: JAMIE O'BRIEN solo
Crooked Tooth Brewing Company
228 E. 6th Street, Tucson
I'll be playing here for the first time tonight! This is a superb little brewery, midway between 4th and 6th Avenues, where they really know their beer. There's always a fine selection they've brewed available and definitely worth trying (and enjoying!) The building used to be a car workshop and they've done it up excellently - there's even a courtyard out back (where I hope I'll be playing, weather permitting). Support your local brewery and your local musicians - come along and enjoy the place. They often have a food truck just by the entrance, too

Tuesday, September 19: a private solo performance at the VA

And then a little later...

Wednesday, October 18 - Jamie will be taking part in the songwriters' evening at Monterey Court, Tucson. Details to follow

Saturday, October 21 - 5pm: JAMIE O'BRIEN solo
Mountain/First Avenue Porch Fest, Tucson
Details coming soon

During 2017, Jamie will be not just appearing in Southern Arizona, but he'll also be touring :
The East Coast (July, August) -- Hawai'i (the fall) -- and Europe (winter)
He'll be playing solo, with Henry Koretzky, the Launies and Unbowed - that means original, Irish, Americana and Hawaiian songs as well as contradance music.
Would you like him to play for you? Do you know a venue that might appreciate his music? Then, get in touch!
