ON THE MEND
I’m happy to report that, after a harrowing six weeks, my medical situation has been resolved and I’m recuperating nicely. I plan to be back on the music circuit in mid-September.
On July 15, I had emergency abdominal surgery and there were complications that delayed what should have been a two- to three-week recovery. But that’s water under the bridge and I’m very happy to be playing music again. My updated schedule can be found here.
Thanks to everyone who sent get-well wishes, either by email, text or Facebook. I appreciated every one.
Of the 16 gigs that had to be cancelled, 13 were Knock on Wood shows. Several of them will be rescheduled so check the calendar for updates.
Our next show is a return engagement at Appleton Farms in Ipswich on Sunday, Sept. 17, 12-2:30 p.m. We had a lot of fun doing this concert last year and are looking forward to it.
Our show is part of Farm Days, a family-oriented event that features barnyard animals, farming demonstrations, games and activities for all ages, face painting, children’s crafts and food trucks.
The cost is $20 per car ($15 for members). Advance tickets are available by clicking here.
WAIT … THERE’S MORE
There are three more KOW shows on the docket: Oct. 29 in Norwood, Oct. 30 in North Attleboro and Nov. 6 in Beverly. For details, visit www.howienewman.com/knockonwood
ONE MORE BASEBALL SHOW
The final Musical Baseball Show of the year is Tuesday, Sept. 19, at the Leicester Senior Center (1 p.m.). Next year, I plan to do a revamped show with some new songs since I’ll be releasing Baseball’s Greatest Hits, Volume 3. For updates, visit www.howienewman.com/baseball-show
I was rolling along at a record pace for CD sales (nearly 100) when I was hospitalized in mid-July. I haven’t sold too many since then, although streaming and digital downloads have provided some revenue.
I’d be much obliged if you could find it in your heart to purchase some of my music. I have a new album out, It Sure Beats Workin’, which is available as a physical CD or a digital download. For more info, visit www.howienewman.com/workin. You can listen to all the tracks at www.howienewman.com/workin-samples
I also have five other albums available. If you’d like a physical CD, the only place you can get one is from me. Visit www.howienewman.com/buy-cd for more info. You can order digital downloads from all the traditional outlets, like iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc.
Thanks in advance for your support.
It’s great to be back. Hope to see you soon.
