Hugh to guest with Gail Davies at the Station Inn 

Hi everyone-

Gail Davies has invited me to join her to sing a duet on Old Flames Can't Hold a Candle to You at the Station Inn in Nashville tonight, September 28. Details under “Shows” above.

We sang the song first together a “few” years ago on the New Country television show.

It's a great honor for me to join one of the greatest stars of country music on stage AND…it will be a great show with other guests (as if Gail needs any help!)

Hope to see you if you're in town!

See you down the road.


Guitar Pull in Kent! 

Hi all-

Yesterday evening John Peppard and I, along with Lizann and Mary, joined a song sharing event at the home of journalist Alan Cackett in Maidstone, Kent, in the UK. It never surprises me because I've come to expect it, but the level of musicianship and character present in the folk and country music scene in the UK is second to none. 

This music is now well into its third generation here, as it is in many places around the world. The roots stretch back to Scotland and Ireland but have been cross pollinated so many ways that it's truly a world music. As I have said before, they call it country music but they don't say what country!

I'm proud to be part of it.

See you down the road!

Great afternoon at Brown's! Next stop Dorset, UK! 

Hi all-

Wade, Jay, Brent, Doug, and I played for an hourat Brown's. It was really good. First time this group ever played together and as to be expected with wonderful musicians, everyone found their spot and settled in. Hope we can do it again!

But next – on to the UK! On July 21, I'll be playing solo, sharing a bill with old friend and GREAT COUNTRY SINGER, ALAN WEST, in Symondsbury, Dorset. Here's the info:


Hope to see you there!


Hugh Moffatt, Wade McCurdy AND FRIENDS! at Brown's Diner Saturday, July 8, 3PM - 4PM 


This Saturday will be Wade's and my last show for this summer as I am going to Europe till the end of August.

HOWEVER, we're going out BIG. 

We'll be joined on stage by Jay Patten (Saxophonist Superieure), Brent Moyer (on Electric Guitar this time among his many instruments!) and Doug Frame (Drummer, percussionist and glue that holds it all together.)

Mostly different songs from last month. Come give us a proper sendoff for the summer!

See you down the road!


Good time at Brown's last Saturday - next time is July 8 


We really enjoyed playing last Saturday. Wade and I did the first half of the set, then Jay Patten came up and made everything even better! Thanks to all who came out. It felt really good. It was a set of songs we love, most of which we don't do very often anymore.

We'll play again on Saturday, July 8, from 3P-4P. We'll have more guests with us. Then I'll be traveling the rest of the summer.

See you down the road!
