Calling all friends and folk fans…all my appearances through April 12th (at least) will be rescheduled for a future point in time. I’m sure you understand why. Stay safe and healthy. And when it IS safer, kindly continue to support live music every chance you get. I’ll be out there.
Germany’s Stockfisch Records at last releases “Meet You Where You Are”, my 15th studio recording (and fourth on this European label). They’ve done another amazing job with my songs (and one by the late great Phil Ochs). The other version? The Irish trio Iontach on their new CD “Cuan”. I wrote “Until…” in an Irish pub on my first trip over there in 2014. This is a great honor, and they do a sparkling version that would make any songwriter proud. Thank you Jens, Siobhan, and Nick!
8 of my 15 CDs – Rising in Love, Digging Through My Closet, Nights at the Chez, If You Can’t Fly, Another Side of David Roth, Irreconcilable Similarities, Think Twice (double CD), and now Rhubarb Trees (duo CD w/Anne Hills) are reissued on a wooden 8 GB flash drive ~ 133 songs, lyrics, and liner notes (for the exotic price of $40 on my website, $30 at shows). ALSO included on the drive are other out-of-print items – the 12 tracks from my 1988 cassette May the Light of Love AND BOTH DR Songbooks, Volumes 1 and 2, forty eight selected songs in PDF form. As we say in New England, “a bahgain”.
Oxford University Press Worldwide has just re-upped for the use of my song Nine Gold Medals in yet another Indian textbook called Satthwa A Value Education Course 5. The licensing fee? 17,851.5 rupees. I got excited! Then I went to the currency calculator. Still, all these kids in India hearing about this story of courage and selfless-ness is worth every rupee and all of the two hundred dollars 🙂
