30 August 2007 - Bruce will be doing two shows in Utah at the The Moab Folk Festival on November 2 and 3rd. Other than those two shows the rest of the year will be spent traveling and writing.

He will be in Buenos Aires, Argentina until mid October (he's on his way there now). It's a personal trip with the only agenda being to learn to speak some Spanish.

After the Moab Folk Festival he will be going to Nepal. This will be on the 20th anniversary of his first trip to Nepal. This trip is being done with the USC (Unitarian Service Committee) who he has worked extensively in the past as you no doubt are aware of. He will be in Nepal for around 3 weeks and will be reporting back on what he sees there via the USC.

The only shows we have confirmed for 2008 are both in Alaska:
May 9 Anchorage
May 10 Fairbanks
More details will be available on both of these dates later but they are both Bruce solo concerts.

Two recent covers of Bruce's songs that I've been enjoying lately are:

Paper Rival doing Pacing The Cage
Donavan Frankenreiter doing Wondering Where The Lions Are

Bruce is in great spirits and had a very enjoyable and productive tour and is now looking forward to some down time.
Beyond that we aren't certain of what else may be happening in 2008 at this moment.
