IMPORTANT PANDEMIC UPDATE!!! Hi Folks, Given the ongoing situation and most recent extension of the lockdown, I'm compelled to cancel (and reschedule) all of my 2021 UK/Ireland tour dates (into 2022). I'm actively rescheduling this year's dates for next year: 2022 (see itinerary below). Rescheduled dates will be updated on this page as soon as they are confirmed.  Tickets purchased via my ticket providers Eventbrite and SeeTickets will be honored at rescheduled gigs or as credit on merch. Thanks for your patience during this crazy time. Be well, stay safe and take plenty of long walks to stretch your legs, breath fresh air and keep your head screwed on straight! Dean                 PS: Meanwhile, check out my monthly 'All Request' Virtual ZOOM Concert below!

August 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22 - Dean Friedman's 'American Lullaby' - 'Virtual' 6-Night Run at Edinburgh Fringe (8pm UK / 3pm NY)  - This is a TICKETED ZOOM EVENT (log-in required) ON SALE! order tickets below
DeanZoomDean Friedman performs songs and tells stories about all the surreal stuff that's befallen American - and the world - these past six years. The show, based on his new album, ‘American Lullaby’, is a ninety minute 'virtual' performance,  'livestreamed' to a Zoom audience - combining storytelling and song to explore the bewildering political, cultural and global health disasters we've just endured (and continue to endure and struggle to understand). Like all lullabies, the show is filled with tales of dark deeds and disaster, but couched in soft, gentle tones, leavened with humor and a healthy dose of silliness, meant to soothe and comfort the listener, while gently bracing them for the potential terrors that await. The show, structured around the album's songs (with a few familiar hits mixed in), touches on a broad range of topics, including: the calamitous pandemic, looming environmental disaster, racism, sexism, and an intractable culture war… all exacerbated by our inane and disastrous politics. In his inimitable way, Friedman explores these dark topics with a deft mixture of seriousness, whimsy and joy. The show is filled with optimism and faith – not in any god, but in our common humanity and the conviction that for those of us lucky enough to have survived the recent cataclysms, it’s incumbent upon us, to not just work to heal our wounded world but, to seize every chance we get to celebrate wonder… and propagate joy.    [NOTE: This is a ticketed online event, so order your tickets early to get your log-on and password!]
