JOSH JOINS THE TEAM

Josh Berlin is the latest member of the Knock on Wood ensemble. He debuted at a concert in Mansfield on April 26.

 

Josh is a terrific fiddler who plays a funky-looking electric fiddle. The instrument basically has no body but it sounds great and Josh can really play. He’s been entertaining audiences in the Boston area for more than 20 years with a sound ranging from country and Americana to folk-rock and blues. Josh brings passion, energy and spontaneity to his playing.

 

He joins Joe Kessler and Dave Talmage as members of the KOW team.

   

WHOA, ONE MORE

Just when I thought my season of baseball shows had come to a close, another booking came my way. As the hardball postseason is in full swing, I’ll be doing a Musical Baseball Show at the Lunenburg Public Library on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 6 p.m.

 

You may recall that the live version of “Way Past My Bedtime” was recorded at this venue back in 2022. OK, you probably don’t recall it but that’s what happened. It’s on the It Sure Beats Workin’ CD. If you’ve missed the 2024 version of the show, here’s one last chance.

SAVE THE DATE

Knock on Wood’s fourth annual community fundraiser is less than a month away, so please make plans to join us on Sunday, June 23, at the First Baptist Church in Melrose, 561 Main St., from 6-7:30 p.m. This is a free outdoor concert. In the event of rain, we’ll go indoors at the church.

 

This year, we are partnering with Pantry of Hope, a food assistance program run by the First Baptist Church. We’ll be accepting donations at the show, with a portion going to the food pantry.

OUTDOOR CONCERTS BEGIN JUNE 12

The KOW outdoor season begins June 12, 6:30 p.m. at Lafayette Park, 9 Storer St. in Kennebunk, Maine. This is a beautiful park and we’ve always had a great turnout and a terrific time. It’s a rain or shine event. The indoor venue is the Waterhouse Center, 55 Main St., in Kennebunk.

 

We have four more outdoor shows scheduled for June. See www.howienewman.com/knockonwood for details.
