Gordonsville, VA - Honah Lee Vineyard 9/27/17 songlist

Tonight's show at Honah Lee Vineyards, on a beautiful hillside near Gordonsville, Virginia, reminded me of why I love playing music. Several friends came out, dancing happened (rare for a solo-acoustic performance), and I played a few songs I've never played before. It was a beautiful autumn evening and a great setting for a mid-week outdoor show. I'm still buzzing. Thanks to everyone who came out tonight!

I didn't make a setlist for this one. It was a three-hour show, so I thought I'd just make a list of all of my songs and select covers so I could pull them out at will. In the past I've tried performing with no setlist or song list whatsoever, but in the heat of the moment I tend to forget what I have available. The song list proved to be very helpful.
