Coming Events

Fall 2023 Tour of Denmark and Northern Germany!

Paul kaplan & rod sinclair – October 2023

This Fall I will be performing in Denmark and northern Germany with my old pal Rod Sinclair. Rod, from Fife, Scotland, has sung his songs and played guitar and 5-string banjo all over the world. He contributed to every Tønder Festival, from 1985-1990 as artistic director. With some of Denmark's leading young musicians, Rod provided original music and songs for the Royal Inauguration of Denmark's biggest national park, the Wadden Sea. He’s toured Denmark with Dick Gaughan, fiddle player Brian McNeill and with Danish guitar virtuoso Christian Alvad and now will be joined by New England's own Paul Kaplan! And, just in case you'll be in Europe this Fall, here are the Tour dates:

On Sunday, November 5, at Ye Olde Rose & Crown Theatre on Hoe Street in London, I will be doing one or two songs as a floor singer before the main act, which includes the magnificent Jeff Gillett. Jeff will be joining me on a duet of my song “Let’s make a toast,” singing the part John Roberts sang on my “We Shall Stay Here” CD.

I also plan on being a floor singer at Unity Folk Club(10/30), Islington Folk Club (11/2), Cellar Upstairs (11/6), and Sharp’s Folk Club (11/7).
