Set List - Orange, VA - The Light Well

Had a great time at the Light Well. Since I’ve been playing out again in 2013 or so, I’ve been relying on my lyrics perched on a music stand (in the grand tradition of Michael Stipe and others). This show was the first where I haven’t done that; I was crossing without a net, so to speak. It went pretty well and I feel it was an important step to being a better live performer. The crowd was wonderful. It’s always nice, in a restaurant setting, to have folks elect to stick around for the whole evening.
