First, let me say, work is still be completed on World Blanket’s 3rd album, Create/Roadshow.  It will be finished soon.  But there is still work to be done.

Meanwhile, unfortunately, we’ve gone from dozens of shows a month to nearly none at all.  So to fill that void, I announce “Baby Blanket.”

Late last year, I purchased a Little Martin Acoustic Electric to become my fulltime travel guitar.  The 3/4 size instrument is a little beast with surprisingly sturdy sound and I immediately found myself wanting to test it out live.

On Thursday, Febraury 3rd, I took it for a spin at Goodbye Blue Monday in the Bushwick part of Brooklyn — using it to play a cadre of World Blanket tunes past, present and future — and I had an amazing time.  Thus “Baby Blanket” was born.

Baby Blanket shows will continue during these times when the band is not playing (and possibly beyond).  They promise to follow two rules: 1) always the baby instrument, and 2) a focus on World Blanket material.

I’ve already announced Baby Blanket shows #2 & #3…

I’m going to be doing a rare solo acoustic show on October 27th at The Delancey in the Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York City. Start time is 7pm sharp. $10 cover.

I’ll be playing songs from the forthcoming album, Create/Roadshow, as well as a few classic TWB tunes and a number of brand new songs never played live before anywhere.

I would love to see anyone and everyone there.
