Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, this brilliant bearded codger has been singing and strumming his head-spinning repertoire of blues, folk, novelty, kids' songs, and palindromic originals since 1964 in a voice that blends Mississippi John Hurt, Popeye, and your favorite Tuvan throat singers. You can catch his thoroughly entertaining hippie-vaudeville magic at least four times this week at as many venues.
