This is just Howlin’ and his ukulele. And maybe a kazoo or so. This act is best as an opening act, a house concert or as part of a varieté or burlesque show. With house concerts this act will be two 40 to 45 minute sets. In all other circumstances it’s best as an hour or less.
With A Duo
Currently this is likely to be Peanut Envy, but if salamandir isn’t available it’s Hobbit and either a bass instrument (tuba? bass? bassoon? etc.) or a soloist (fiddle? clarinet? melodica? etc.), hand selected from amongst my amazing friends. Great for clubs, coffeehouses, house concerts, private parties, etc. We like to keep these appearances to two hours or less.
Here you can find my Official Howlin’ Hobbit Electronic Press Kit™, easily downloadable so you don’t have to wait for the mail! (All documents are in pdf format.)
- Howlin’ Hobbit 1 sheet
- Howlin’ Hobbit promo photo. It looks wonderful on glossy photo stock, even from an inkjet! Perfect for printing out and hanging in your lobby. (If you prefer an 8×10, this version is designed to be printed out to standard 8.5×11″ glossy stock and with just two chops on the paper cutter, voilá! An 8×10 glossy.)
- Howlin’ Hobbit PR photo (same as above but in high-def jpg format, perfect for print media, no text on this one)
- B&W Howlin’ Hobbit PR photo (black and white version of above for use in print media who require b&w)

For An Old Man, written by my friend, Jim Nason.
Moonglow, an older recording, but still pretty representative of my “old school” stuff.
Also, there’s a video of me performing For An Old Man on my Music & Video page.
