Cliff Westfall/A Tree With Roots at Nick-a-Nee's

Nick-a-Nee's, 75 South Street, Providence, RI

So I've never been to this legendary dive bar, but everyone else in my band has played here at one time or another, and they assure me it's gonna be the night of our lives. I'll be ready to rock for this one... No cover.

And following my performance, A Tree With Roots will be performing the music of Dylan and The Band. (Worth noting here that A Tree With Roots is basically the guys in my band plus several other hotshots, and they make the Dylan/Band stuff sound amazing.)

 —  —

Union Hall, 702 Union Ave., Brooklyn, NY

Cliff Westfall -- Friday Night at the Arnold House!

 —  —

The Arnold House, 839 Shandelee Road, Livingston Manor, NY

A night of country music at this gorgeous country hotel and restaurant. The Arnold House has been written up in Travel and Leisure and other major publications -- definitely worth checking out even if we weren't going to be rocking the joint. Music and bonfire begin at 8 pm.

Cliff Westfall w/ Graham Norwood at the 11th Street Bar

 —  —

11th Street Bar, 510 E. 11th Street (b/w A & B), New York, NY

Playing the 11th Street Bar again, this time with none other than my hotshot guitarist, Graham Norwood, doing a solo acoustic opening set. People throw around terms like "not to be missed" a lot, but if you haven't seen Graham doing his own material, let me assure you that you really owe it to yourself.

 —  —

The Dancing Cat Saloon, 2037 State Route 17B, Bethel, NY

We're back at the Dancing Cat for a Friday night honky tonk bonanza. And opening up the show, A Tree With Roots (including three members of my own hotshot band) will play a bunch of Rolling Thunder Revue-era music of Dylan and the Band. Should be a great night!

Come early to get dinner (I'm partial to the mahi mahi myself).

$10 cover also enters you to win a bottle of house-made Wicked Whiskey.
