The Viper to play at the New Deal Cafe, Thursday, August 28

The Viper will be playing Thursday evening, August 28, at the New Deal Cafe in Greenbelt, MD. I’ll be doing a 15-minute slot at some point between 7:00 and 9:00 p.m. as part of an open mic sponsored by the Songwriters Association of Washington and run by Lynn Hollyfield and David Weaver.

The trick now is figuring out how many songs to try and cram into 15 minutes, and what kind of balance I should make between my standard baritone ukulele crooners and some of the newer old-time marches, polkas, and freylakhs I’ve been writing on my recently acquired cumbus (actually, cümbüş, if you want to get authentically Turkish about it). I guess some of this will depend upon how many Ramblers I can round up for the occasion.

  1. Right glad I am to see that you’re still playing out, Viper, because a friend of mine and I are going to try to get you back to Urbana to play a gig next summer. Watch your email for more details…

  2. Ooh – sounds like there might be a 10th anniversary in the offing! Let me know. And as you may or may not know, by next summer I’ll be living Milwaukee.
