Normally, most of the music played on Across the Pond is from Scotland, Ireland and England, with a few American additions. The August 29 show, however, will feature American songwriters, singing about Ireland….Tom Paxton, Tim O’Brien, Si Kahn, Joe Jencks along with several Texas singers.
It breaks my heart to have to cancel next year’s Folksong Tour of Scotland. However, because of the stupidity/selfishness of so many people in the country, especially Texas, there is always the chance that the COVID infection could mutate into other forms and be an ongoing problem. Because of that, along with the bad memory of taking a big financial hit over the cancellation of the 2020 tour, guide Charles Hunter and I have agreed not to take the risk of a repeat.
