New album on the way - LONG WIDE OPEN ROAD 

Hi all- 

I’m in Nashville finishing the recording of a new album. The album will be titled LONG WIDE OPEN ROAD and consists of 11 songs of mine that I’ve never recorded before. I'm working with the legendary Nashville musician (and longtime friend) Biff Watson as co-producer. I'm very excited about this. I expect to have the CD available around the end of May. Musicians who play or sing on the songs are Biff, Martin Delray, Jay Patten, Brent Moyer, Eddie Bayers, Susie "Suchi" Waters Benjamin, and Wade McCurdy. This is turning out really, really well. I can't wait to have it in my hands! 

BTW - I have added the lyrics to the songs on my album ONLY ALONG FOR THE RIDE to the lyrics page.  Lyrics to the new album will also be available at release. 

My fall European tour is about to add some more dates. I will post when confirmed. 

In the meantime, I add to my Pencils blogs regularly. Check them out. If you want to be notified when a new one posts just follow me on Twitter @hughmoffatt. 

See you down the road!

UK and European Tour coming in the Fall (and report on a play reading) 

Hi again-

A few of the dates are set for my tour in October-November.

Please see Shows link above for details. More coming soon!

Also, on November 4, 2017, the very talented Michael Ofori directed a staged reading of my full length play Restless at Boston University with a wonderful cast of BU students: Nick Walker, Oreine Robinson, VonDerrick Taylor, Dani Palmer, Christian Scales, Conor Paradis, and Tatianna Jackson.

It was well received with very helpful comments from both the cast and the audience. I have revised again and keep on towards a full production somewhere someday!

See you down the road!

Happy 2019 

Hi everyone-

Please take time everyday to wish someone well or help someone out. Nothing moves the world out of darkness more than each one of us doing something daily to be better, to make someone else's life a little better, maybe someone who irritates you. We all have to get along somehow.

Even if you're doing other things for the world, do this too!

Looks like I'll be back on the road in 2019.

One date in Worcester, MA in March and then a tour in the UK, Ireland, Switzerland, and Germany in the fall.

Watch for dates!

See you down the road
