'byeTunes.

Wednesday Child and Building the Railroad will no longer be sold on iTunes as of next month (January 5th and the 21st, respectively). The albums will still be available for sale on Bandcamp and (of course) directly from me via the post or in person at shows. This move away from what has become of Apple is one of several changes in the works for 2016, and I assure you it is the least interesting of them. Still, the public has a right to know.

Subtle Reminder: First Night Northampton.

Right, here you go. I'm playing an afternoon set this year, the 5:00pm slot downstairs in Lyman Hall at First Churches. The show is listed under my name, but it will be a Goodhue, Dines, and Murnane show, featuring new acoustic arrangements of our past and recent favorites.

Also, this First Night show will be the last public performance for the foreseeable future. Recording projects are taking priority, and it's unlikely I'll be booking any solo or trio gigs until March at least. So if you think you'll need a GD&M fix to tide you over, get down to Lyman Hall on New Year's Eve.

Music Night.

Here's a pic taken by Tom Adams during our performance this past Friday at the Williamsburg Grange Community Hall. The event, organized by Tom, was the first of four Monthly Music Nights happening through March.

Next Up: First Night.

The next performance will be during First Night Northampton. As always on First Night, it will be the Goodhue, Dines, and Murnane lineup. But for the first time, we put in a request during the booking process to play an afternoon show rather than one in the later hours of the night.

I'll be playing acoustic this time, too, which is another way we're changing things up a bit, and we're also playing a new-to-us venue. Lyman Hall at First Churches is one of my favorite spaces to see performances during the event, and this will be our first time playing the room. It's First Night, right? So we're making it a night of many firsts, and hope to see you there. We play one set from 5:00 to 5:45pm.

The December Double Single.

Take a glance at the top of the right-hand column, and you'll spot that December Surprise I was talking about: The December Double Single, featuring acoustic mixes of two songs off the Building the Railroad album. Like the Summer Singles, you can either download the tracks for free or send a bit of holiday cheer my way. Anyway, I hope you like 'em. Thanks for listening.
