This blog started out giving you posts of the songwriter’s notes, lyrics, and music for my original songs. As with many things, it has gone in new directions. So, if you just started reading my post and are interested in my original material, here is a link to mySongwriter Notes.
If you want to listen to me and my partner, Siobhan, Practicing, here is a link to ”Livin’ Small,” an original song on my YouTube channel.
On Thursday, 12/1, Kerry Regan of Watkins and the Rapiers will be our guest in the Side room at Buffalo Bill’s. “Mr. Watkins,” as he is known by many, is the band leader of Watkins and the Rapiers. Like the rest of his band mates, his song topics are filled with an irony that often elicits a smile, chuckle, or gut laughter. Rather than telling you more about this great songwriter, here are some videos of Kerry’s songs from a previous show in the Side Room:
”In the Finger Lakes”
”Maybe This’ll Be the One”
”My Mother Never Learned to Drive”

Hope you can join us for the show!
The concert is free, but we do ask for donations to support our performers. Siobhan has created four CDs, one for each of our four seasons. Each CD contains songs of the performers who appeared during that season. The requested donation for each CD is $10, and the proceeds go to the performers who are playing on the night of the donation. The CDs have gotten good reviews, and we hope they get passed around to let others know about the great talent we have appearing at this venue.
The concerts take place on the first and third Thursdays of every month in the side room of Buffalo Bill’s Family Restaurant and Taproom, 19 Main Street, Shortsville, NY. The show runs from 7 to 9 PM. To learn more about Buffalo Bill’s, check out their site right here:
