In addition to every Monday at the Gris, Cliff will be in Rhode Island on Saturday the 23d – at O’Rourke’s in Warwick, RI. from 1 – 4 p. He’ll be with his band The Jovial Crew… Those of you who have traveled to see him and the band from further east will have less of a jaunt to hang and sing with us! Pass the word!
On Saturday, 25 April, Cliff will perform at the Company of Fifers & Drummers as a find raiser for the building. He will bring Joseph along and possibly Tim and Rick as well, pending their schedules. You’ll also get to hear such wonderful performers as the Ancient Mariners Chanteymen, Marc Bernier, and Save the Train! The doors will be open by 5:30 – you can warm up in the bar – and the show begins at 7p. 10$ to benefit the Company. No reservations needed!

To those who have inquired about obtaining some of the old recordings that Cliff is on… If you click on the page of recordings that Cliff contributed on, you will find that some of those older recordings are still available. However, I have posted MP3 files for the songs from records long out of print. Please enjoy for yourself but copyrights still apply should you wish to utilize them for anything else.
A couple of weeks ago we noticed a photographer taking far more photos than the usual tourist… Come to find out that we’re now in the Hartford Courant! Me, my band, and the Gris. You should give it a read!

Cliff will be away for a couple of weeks getting some R&R… But he’ll return for the start of April! We all had a great and safe St-Pats so now we’re eager for the warmth and longer hours of sunlight!
Winter is almost over! That means St-Patrick’s Day is about upon us! I’ll be singing with my Jovial Crew at the Griswold Inn in Essex that Tuesday, 17 March, from 6:30 until 10:30. You might want to make reservations for dinner now. And imbibe your favourite beverages while singing along!
This past Sunday Cliff joined many musicians in playing a memorial concert for the late and truly great Danny Quinn. If you follow the link you will see photos from that event taken by some of those in attendance.
This coming Saturday the 10th, My Jovial Crew and I are playing at Café Nine (on the corner of State and Crown streets) in New Haven – the objective, to raise funds for the city’s St-Patrick’s Day parade. We’ll arrive to set up around 7:30, the show begins around 9 with the band The Amples and then we’ll do a couple of sets. It’s a bar, so only 21 and older, please. Come on down, all our fans from the New Haven area – this is another opportunity to participate with us on your home turf! Check the flier here for details.
A wonderful holiday season to everyone! And especially a better new year!
