BACK IN BUSINESS

As many of you know, I’ve had some medical issues the past several months. My most recent surgery was Jan. 26 and I’ve fully recovered so I’m back on the music trail once again.

 

Knock on Wood, my folk-rock duo, kicks things off with a show on Monday evening, March 4, at the Richard Sugden Library in Spencer. We’ll follow that up with two shows the next week in Sudbury (March 11) and Bridgewater (March 15). For our full schedule, as well as other assorted propaganda, visit www.howienewman.com/knockonwood

   

FIRST BASEBALL SHOW MARCH 27

I’ll be doing my first Musical Baseball Show the day before the regular season opener on Wednesday, March 27, at the Burlington Senior Center. Then I’ve got eight baseball shows scheduled for April. I guess the strategy is to hold the concert before the Sox fall too far out of the race.

 

I’ll be doing new songs from my latest baseball CD, Baseball’s Greatest Hits, Volume 3, as well as selections from Volumes 1 and 2. Volume 3 is slated for an early March release. There will also be trivia, stories and a few surprises. So check it out. There should be one near you.

FOOD PANTRY FUNDRAISER

Knock on Wood will be holding its fourth annual food pantry fundraiser on Sunday, June 23, 6-7:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in Melrose. It will be held outdoors on the church lawn. In the event of rain, we’ll go inside the church.

 

This year we’ve decided to partner with Pantry of Hope, a charitable program that is run by the First Baptist Church.

 

Pantry of Hope, which works with several other local organizations including Stop & Shop and The Greater Boston Food Bank, provides food for nearly 100 individuals and families per month. In addition, the program offers resources for those in need, such as information about food stamps, the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and area thrift shops.

 

As we’ve done in years past, we will collect donations during the concert, with a portion going to Pantry of Hope. If you are unable to attend the concert, donations will be accepted before and after the event.

Spring is just around the corner. Woo hoo!
