From the West to Americana Fest 

It's been an adventure doing this quick west coast tour. I'm driving back to Nashville now and will be playing Two Old Hippies tomorrow night September 11th. Come see me if you are in the area. Lots more news about the trip next week.

Roadmaster Stage and beyond! 

GT and the Zealots are energized to play our friend Dave Boughner's Roadmaster Stage in Black Mountain, Saturday, June 8. This is a wonderful place to have a mini-festival and we are honored to be included in this summer's lineup. Others who have or will grace this stage include John Howie Jr., the Sufi Bothers, Eleanor Underhill, David Childers, Tim Easton, Drunken Prayer, and many other great musicians.

See me with Nashville's Smoking Flowers on Thursday 

Thank you to all who came to the 4-20 gig at the Grey Eagle with Southern Culture on the Skids!  Big welcome to the new folks who signed up for my list there.
Want to let you know about a few things. First off I'm energized to be playing with my Nashville pals Smoking Flowers at Sly Grog Lounge on May 23. If what you're after is Americana music with a poetic punk-rock kick, then check out this duo. The Zealots are gonna rock out! The next night I'm playing solo in Pittsboro at City Taproom, so come on out Chapel Hill friends!
We've got several new videos up on my newly styled Youtube channel. Check these compilations out: the Zealots and George Trouble. Subscribe if you like them, more on the way, including from 4-20.

Full Circle 

Hey friends - I just uploaded two new videos from my gig at Rockwood Music Hall in Brooklyn last month (top left column on this page). Have a listen. Also just sent out my latest newsletter, which includes an excerpt of the David Wojnarowicz piece I've been working on for months.

New Paintings and a Duet with Ed Jurdi!  

I finished the "Legend of Tom Dooley", and "Mt. Pisgah" paintings at last! "Snake Handlers" and two others are getting close. You can see them all on my instagram. I'll be uploading them to my art site this week so you can buy prints of them, along with many old favorites. You can also find prints in person at Zapow in Asheville. 
I'm starting a series of monthly duets with musicians I admire at the Bywater in Asheville, called Monthly Monday Troubadours. November 12 is the first one and I am delighted to welcome Ed Jurdi of Austin's Band of Heathens to join me!

Heading Back to Nashville  

I'm heading back to Nashville next week, after a great time there last week at Americana Festival. I'm playing with Anna Joy Harris, a talented songwriter, who I met at Cafe Rooster. 

I've got some paintings hanging at the space too. Nashville friends, please come see us!
