JRL This Week: May 13-17

Tuesday night: house concert with Andrew Kreider, quirky, intelligent songcrafter. We’ll split the gig. He’ll have an upright bass player. I’ll mostly play solo, some new songs and stuff from Now and past projects. I may have a guest musician or two show up. I love the personal connection at house concerts.
7 PM. 1726 Roys Ave, Elkhart, IN 46516

Wednesday night: Concert with Jerimae Yoder at the Beanery in Mishawaka. We’ll split the show. He’s a good guitarist who does some interesting atmospheric stuff with loops. I’m excited to push out the Americana feel of what I do.
7 PM. 117 S Main, Mishawaka, IN 46544

Friday night: I’m going to be in downtown Goshen enjoying the new band Nate Butler (drummer on several JRL records) has put together, Frequency Theater. They cover a JRL tune and asked me to sit in on it, so that’s exciting.
7PM. Goshen Theater, 216 S Main St. Goshen, IN. Doors at 6:30 PM, $5 Cover

Saturday afternoon: Songwriting Seminar at Lifespring Community Church. This is open to anyone who currently writes songs or is interested in songwriting. I will do some reflection and teaching as well as some creative exercises. Should be fun. No charge.
12-2 PM. 116 S 3rd St, Goshen, IN

Saturday night: The Electric Brew. This is one of the best places for JRL. There’s always a crowd of young and old friends of the band, and the energy that’s there when some people really know and love the music is amazing. I’ll do some old favorites, some stuff from Now, as well as a bit of experimental, improvisational stuff. The band will be eclectic, hopefully including a bit of brass. If you can be there, come, it’s like a quirky musical family reunion that’s actually fun.
7 PM. 136 S Main St., Goshen, IN. $5 Cover
