About

Hi Folks and Welcome to the ride we're about to take together.

When COVID-19 told us all to sit down, shut up, and figure out how to do things differently, it was at an opportune time for me.  After nearly 50 years of touring I was ready for a more grounded life, one that helped me stay home more than I had in decades.  One that allowed me time to continue writing music and books, teaching other artists and songwriters, organizing a lifetime of field recordings, and assorted other activities without having to jump on an airplane every weekend.  And you can help that happen.

Your sponsorship will not only allow me to deepen my creative endeavors, it'll afford me an opportunity to share the many projects I've mounted with you.  Whether it's premiering new material, workshopping a new story, taking you through the process of writing/editing/re-writing/re-editing a new book, playing recordings I made of some of my Appalachian mentors back in my 20's, it'll be a surprising and fun ride to take together.  I'll do some live-streaming concerts, only for my Patreon partners.  Videos, audio outtakes, visits with friends and guests, come see what's in store!

When it finally is safe to be touring again, I'll relish spending an evening with you in a concert hall.  But this next chapter in my life will be tempered by not only my age, but by whatever the new reality looks like.

Patronage is an old and honorable way to support artist.  In times of old, it was the wealthy and institutions like royalty and the Church that served as patrons.  And artists walked a narrow line to maintain their patron's approval and assistance.  Patreon offers a way to democratize this ancient form and, at the same time, helps artists like me maintain both independence and integrity.  So take a look at the video, check out the tiers of support, and then click on the big orange button over on the right to join in.  It's easy, it's quick, and it's something I'll do my best to make you proud to be a part of.  Thanks!

John
