Adam's gigs + booking information

These days I work primarly as a duo with Alan Gross, as The Blues Doctors.  We are willing to travel to where the work is, including overseas.  If you'd like to book us for YOUR festival, club, or private party, please contact me via email: 

As an experienced teacher and lecturer, I'm also delighted to offer my services for harmonica-related teaching events:  clinics, workshops, and the like; the OMB format, in such cases, lets me deliver a self-contained, concert-ready set of music to complement the instructional portion of the event.  (In other words, you don't need to hire a band to back me up.)  I'm ready, willing, and able to travel, within the confines of my nine-month teaching appointment at the University of Mississippi.  If you think you've got a gig for me, please don't hesitate to ask!
