Info & Setlist | Venue

One show with Steel Mill headlining and New Jersey folk singer Jeannie Clark supporting. This is the first of three shows played during a massive road trip from Richmond to Nashville and back. It has been mentioned in an interview by Robbin Thompson.

I rode down to the gig in Tinker’s truck. We stopped at a gas station and I bought a packaged cupcake with cinnamon crumb topping. Tinker made me look at the ingredients and he gave me a lecture about all the chemical junk it had in it. He seemed very ahead of his time to me with his California awareness of nutritional issues. I opened the show for Steel Mill at the University of Richmond standing on one end of the gymnasium, playing my guitar and singing to a crowd of students, all sitting on the floor. The music went well, but I was starting to get the sense that the lone, folk troubadour was not going to have as vast an audience as it had in the ‘60s. The times were changing again.
