Orrin Star: in Texas and throughout the Southeast soon; looking for things to do in Dallas, N.C., and Jacksonville.

Hi All:

I've got two big tours coming up - to Texas in January, and then driving to Florida and back from my
home base here in Maryland the month after that - and I'm looking for a few more places to perform
and teach during my travels. (Itinerary for both trips as they now stand is below.)

If any of you might be interested in hosting a workshop or house concert or such let me know.

Hope to see you at something.
