Handy, Spook Spook Handy In Concert History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Spook Handy in Concert is the most popular show I do. Instead of being theme oriented, this is just simply me, my trio or full band showcasing mostly original songs from my 4 CDs. Sprinkled with occasional 60s and 70s folk songs or an obscure original, this concert engages audiences of all backgrounds and ages. An excellent program for Libraries, Arts Centers, Churches, Schools and other meeting places. Pete Seeger covers some of Spook's songs and the two perform together several times per year.
