August 2018 Update

August 2018 Update Hello All There – I hope that everyone’s summer is going along swimmingly…probably not the best metaphor seeing as how we’ve been hit with vats of liquid sunshine recently – at least in my area of what now qualifies as bogland. My nose tingles in anticipation of the smell of burning peat as the wife cooks supper. I know, I know… that sounds a little chauvinistic and more that a little dated. Ah, just calm down - she won’t go for anyway it since we have an electric stove. But I can dream, can’t I? OK that’s enough already. So to sort of start again: I hope you’re all hale and hardy and hearty and well met and looking forward to school starting back up. Now this may come as a surprise to my son, Jared – but he’s the only one to whom it will – I’ll be performing at Kevin Barry’s Pub, 117 W. River Street, Savannah, Georgia (912-233-9626) 13-19 August. That’s Monday through Sunday. Monday – Saturday I go on at 8:00. Sunday, I go on after the Savannah Ceilidh Band-hosted open session. The session usually runs from 6:30-8:30 or in that neighborhood. On Thursday the 16th, we’ll make it a special point to do some Ronnie Drew material. That should be a snap since yer man with The Dubliners seem to have done every song in the Irish Songbook of Knowledge. I think you all know most of them. Right now, I’ll finish this off by reminding you that you can catch some of my stuff at Youtube and also at Spotify, Apple iTunes, Google Music Store, Rhapsody, Deezer, Amazon, thru CD Baby or even at my website: www.frankemerson.com. Incidentally, copies of “Frank Tells Tales” are still available at the gig ($10) or by mail ($11.50). 790 E. Spiller Street Wytheville, VA 24382 I guess that’s about it for this chit chat. Drop a line via email femerson@embarqmail.com or snail mail (see above). Please make yourselves known if you come to the gig; we’ll share a few songs, stories and laughs. If I don’t see you in person, please keep good and well anyway. Join me in keeping out men and women in harm’s way at home and over seas in our thoughts and prayers. All the best for now, Frank
