I am booking my calendar for the rest of the year. Right now, I'm hoping to line up a bunch of Celtic festivals, as well as do some mini-tours in various parts of the country. To find out where to, I use two things: one, my personal mailing list, Marc's Musings. You can sign up to it at However, I also use Eventful. You can make a demand there, and right now, when I see 20-30 people on eventful demanding to see me perform, I will do my best to find a way to fly to wherever you are and setup a show.
