From Shawn himself:
There have been rumours that I have quit the music busines - that I no longer do shows or work on new material. I would like to assure you that these rumours are entirely unfounded.
My new booking agency, Folklore Inc. (FliArtists), is booking my 2014 tour. Mr Mel Puljic of FliArtists, represents me and he is currently working on bookings at theatres and clubs across the USA and Canada. As soon as the bookings are finalised, the tour schedule will appear on the ONLY OFFICIAL Shawn Phillips web site - www.shawnphillipsmusic.com. This is the only web site which is wholly endorsed by me. I completely disclaim the old shawnphillips.com website. Any and all use of that site is in the control of Arlo (Gary) Hennings, of Ubud, Bali, with whom I no longer have any kind of sanctioned business relationship. I dissociate myself from anything to do with the site, including any comments and endorsements attributed to me, and any solicitation for money.
Should you wish to get in touch with me, my agent,or resprersentatives, regarding bookings or information, please do so using the officially sanctioned web site, www.shawnphillipsmusic.com - or via facebook on "Shawn Phillips" or "Shawn Phillips Music Fans". You can tweet me on "ShawnPhillipsMusic".
On a lighter note (G sharp), I love doing house concerts - it gives me a chance to get to know y'all better. If you would like me to play in your living room this tour, give me a holler via www.shawnphillipsmusic.com . And if you would like to hang out with me, The Moody Blues, Roger Daltrey, Carl Palmer (ELP), the Electric Light Orchestra (and other great bands) for 5 days on a gorgeous ocean liner in the Caribbean, check out www.moodiescruise.com . We leave Miami April 2nd and we're back April 7th.
I really appreciate your ongoing support. I am most thankful to have such good people as my friends and fans.
Health, Love and Clarity
