Back in the USA -> New shows, new adventure

Having settled in at home base now, I thought I would give an update on what's in the future for me.

First, I have two shows coming up.  They are at the Bluebird Café in Nashville on MAY 13 and at the Buttonwood Tree Cultural Center in Middletown, CT, on JUNE 20.  Details are on the SHOWS Page.

NOW - I want to reveal a major new adventure in my life that I haven't taken time to fully explain before. 

As many of you know, I was employed by Schweitzer Engineering Lab, Inc (SEL) starting in 1999 in Pullman, WA.  I moved back to Nashville in 2008 still employed by SEL, most recently as business manager for their central US sales region, which is headquartered in Franklin, TN.  I left SEL as of January 1st of this year to pursue music and writing full time again.  I loved the company and the people and the purpose, but it's time to get back to what I do best.

Shortly before that, in November of last year, I started a program to get an MFA in Writing (Playwriting and Screenwriting) from Spalding University in Louisville, KY.  It's a brief residency program which means most of the time I am working remotely with a mentor on writing.  I was working on this during my long train rides and periodic stopovers during my two months in Europe.  Very busy time, but very rewarding.  Here is a link that explains the program.  http://spalding.edu/academics/mfa-in-writing/

In future updates, I will keep you informed on what I am doing in writing and performing OTHER than as a singer/songwriter.

Much is happening!

I hope everyone is well, and to those of you who attended my shows in Europe after so many years, it was wonderful.  Thank you for remembering me and coming out to see me again.

See you down the road!

- Hugh

    It was great to see you again and enjoy your songs after so many years. We went to two of your shows (Borger and House-concert at Lambert's house) and we had a great time. Hope next time it won't be so long before you come back to Europe.
