Notes from the Road  
by Dennis Warner 2018

Bo Diddly-April 2018

Sold out show in St. Cloud with
the Granite City Folk Society.

April 7, 2018
St. Cloud, MN

We had all kinds of fun last night in St. Cloud, MN. The show had been sold out for a couple of weeks and the crowd was hot. Lots of requests, some dating back to very early in my career. True fans! There were probably enough requests to fill the night if I had let it.

I also included some of the new material from my forthcoming CD. It's very exciting to start playing out some of the new songs.

Thanks John Forsythe and the Granite City Folk Society for bringing me in.

Washington School Counselors Association 2018

Seattle, WA talking with the Washington School
Counselors Association about effectively using
"Beads on One String" in their schools.

March 9, 2018
Seattle, WA

I flew into town Wednesday to talk with school counselors from all over the state of Washington about Beads on One String and how to use it effectively in their schools. It's a great program for recognizing our connected-ness around the world, like beautiful beads on a necklace.

Of course, my favorite part is when I get to visit their schools, meet all of the kids (I really try to!) and sing for everyone in a special concert. These are really fun events for me.

I've added "Respond with Love" bumper stickers to the merch table at my concerts. They will soon be for sale on my website, but in the meantime if you would like one or more, send me an email and we'll see what we can work out. These seem to be very popular as I'm having a hard time keeping them in stock. I think it's a good message.

Now about those sunglasses! The booth next to me thought they matched my shirt. They also took the photo. Love 'em!

Grand Junction CO-02-2018

Hiking in Colorado's National Monument
Grand Junction, CO

February 24, 2018
Grand Junction, CO

It's been a great week in Colorado, and I'm happy I was able to spend some quality time with my friends Katharine and Jeffrey Zink. Mountain View Elementary (where Katharine is the counselor) was ready to sing with me when I showed up with the Beads on One String concert! Very fun.

After a relaxing day soaking in natural hot springs in the Sangre de Cristo mountains, I'm now in Grand Junction. Tomorrow I'll do music for the service at the Center for Spiritual Living, followed by a concert.

The weather is perfect with mostly sunny skies and 50 degrees. Gotta luv it!

Tom Chapin & Dennis Warner

February 16, 2018
Kansas City, MO

It was a pleasure to be in Kansas City with Folk Alliance International and to have Tom Chapin stop and chat for awhile in the hallway. I used to watch his Emmy winning TV show "Make a Wish" when I was a kid. Once in a while I still perform a song from that show, "All My Life's a Circle".

In college, I saw Tom and brother Harry in a St. Cloud concert shortly before Harry was killed in a car accident. Harry's death stunned me as I considered him a mentor, watching him engage the audience with his music and stories. I learned a lot about performing from that show.

I last saw Tom several years ago in Illinois, when we both performed at the same music festival.

From KC, I head to Colorado. Looking forward to some mountain time and hopefully a soak in my favorite hot springs!

RoundGlass Music Awards-New York City 2018

January 27, 2018
New York City, NY

I'm in town for the RoundGlass Music Awards. Some amazing people have put this together, honoring select musicians from all over the world who, in their words, "Create Music to make the world a better place." Wow! I'm so grateful to be included in this event with the other 150 or so other musicians.

The ceremony was held last night at the Edison Ballroom on Times Square. Ringo Starr has a new album that took the top award. I always did like him.

So I'm waiting at La Guardia airport for my flight back to Minnesota. Tired, but full of love from sharing space with these wonderful spirits from all over the globe. I'll sleep well on the plane.

Asheville NC 2018

Warming up In the "Green Room" at the famed
Isis Music Hall in Asheville, NC.  This is a cool theater!

January 10, 2018
Asheville, NC

Happy New Year, everyone! I've been on the road about a week now, with really fun shows in Wisconsin and Iowa prior to arriving here in North Carolina this afternoon. When this tour was booked, I expected a little warm reprieve from the midwest winter. Ha! While today was mild in the 60's, tonight it will be in the 30's and even colder in the days ahead that I'm here.

In a few days, I'll be in Atlantic Beach, NC where it snowed last week and the thermometer dropped to 15 degrees F. Normal for Minnesota, not so much here. Glad I have my winter gear in the van.

So after my show tonight here in Asheville, I'll head eastward across North Carolina over to New Bern, Morehead City and Atlantic Beach. Love it!
