So excited to share this intimate stage with vaunted songwriters David Ray and Don Lowe at the Bijou Theater in Bridgeport Ct on Friday, July 16th, at 7:30pm!

This gorgeous little theater, with a storied past dating back to the early 1900's, seats about 200, with great acoustics and a great sound system. Its very early days having been devoted to presenting silent films and vaudeville acts, the now beautifully renovated Bijou is committed to restoring its former glory by staging an eclectic array of worthy artists and films, and has enlivened downtown Bridgeport thereby. The Storytellers (Bruce T Carroll, David Ray, and Don Lowe) are old friends and raconteurs with serious repertoires and significant "real life" experience, which they are pleased to have the opportunity to share with you, the live and streaming audience! (this show will accomodate a modest, socially-distanced live audience AND be live-streamed by Musae.ed). See the link provided below to buy tickets for either the live show or the livestream.

In addition to this great show at the Bijou, I am hard at work finishing up my new full-length album, recorded with members of the Restless Age (nee The Nightflyers) up at their studio in Marlboro, NY. This record is a real departure for me, with a significantly harder edge that brings new life to the music and greater meaning to the lyrics....very excited for what should be a late June release!

Until then, be safe and be well!
