Spring Green General Store, 137 S Albany St, Spring Green, WI

Playing solo can sometime mean background music only, and he can do that of course. But he revels in center-of-attention-ist music where the audience gets to participate, ruminate, dedicate and appreciate right along with our host. Along with great songs, come tales from the road, anecdotes, music trivia and bad jokes (he says NO to balloon animals). It's hard to believe that such a polite, introverted guy can turn it on like that. Yet once he's behind the guitar, anything can happen. Call for more information 608.588.7070.
