Scupanon at Swallow Hill in Denver November 14!

Scupanon will play Denver’s biggest folk music venue on November 14. We will play in the Cafe from 7:30 to 9:30pm. I think people who have been there will agree with me that it’s the best place to hear acoustic music in Colorado. You can buy advance tickets at the Swallow Hill front desk, or online at:

Swallow Hill Music is at 71 E. Yale Ave. Denver, CO 80210

Get your tickets early because we hope to sell this one out!

Paul’s last show with Scupanon

After 9 years of playing with me, violinist Paul Ermisch is leaving Scupanon. We are sad to see him go, but wish him the best. Paul’s last show will be this Friday, March 8, 2019 at Halfpenny Brewing in Centennial, Colorado. Denver-area folks, don’t miss it!

Paul’s replacement is Jim Hewitt, who plays both violin and mandola. Jim will also be playing at this Friday’s show.

Great Show at Odell in Fort Collins last week!

Our show at Odell Brewing in Fort Collins– our first gig ever in Fort Collins– turned out great! Unfortunately our violinist, Paul Ermisch, couldn’t make it due to a family emergency, but former Scupanon percussion, Sam Caston, joined Janet and I. The folks at Fort Collins loved our music. Two drove down from Wyoming to see us!

It was great to hear Sam laying down the beat for my songs again. Look for Sam at some of our future gigs, including Broken Plow Brewery in Greeley, Colorado next month.
