A few weeks ago, I found out I was awarded runner up in a Reverbnation competition, and got invited to attend the Roots Rock Reivival, up in Catskills, NY. it was a sort of master class camp for musicians who are superfans of the Allman Brothers’ Band. Drummer, Butch Trucks, and bassist, Oteil Burbridge hosted 4 days of workships, along w/ Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi All-Stars. They were also the house band and did shows every night. I got to attend the event for free, and get into some really fun jam sessions with them and the attendees. The setting, the vibe, the food, everything was spectacular, and I got to meet some really great people! What an experience!!
The day after returning from upstate i flew to WI for Steel Bridge Songfest 9. I’ve been attending this fest for the last 8 years but this year was truly amazing. I had some great songwriting collaborations (including getting to work w/ the amazing Louise Goffin), and had a bunch of really good gigs around town! AND, I had the great privilege of being invited to perform w/ JACKSON BROWNE at the fest’s finale (i had last performed w/ him at SBSF in 2008) Here’s a couple pics (more on my facebook page!)
Got a bunch of shows in NYC coming in July/August, including a special birthday show @ Rockwood Music Hall on Aug 21st–definitely the biggest area one of the summer!.. i put some details below (also check in at http://craiggreenbergmusic.com/shows/ for all the lasest) Hope to see you out there soon! -cg-
