C.B. Heinemann: Home

Hello and welcome to the C.B. Heinemann website! Here is where you can find out about upcoming gigs, recordings, tours, and even where I'm having articles or short stories published. Over time I'll put other bits in here to entertain those who come. My new CD, "Conspiring With Persons of Questionable Character," has finally emerged, and is available from,, and Right now I'm already finishing up the next one with the tentative title, "Found Pictures and Loose Conversations."

I haven't been keeping up with the website lately--it has been a rough year. Between the passing of my dear sister and the end of J. Patrick's...well, you get the idea. I intend to made more of an effort now that the initial shocks of have faded a bit.

My latest short story, "The Price of a Toilet in Oldenburg," can be read for free at If you goggle my name you'll find many other stories that can also be read online. Go ahead! It might be fun!

By the way, I'm the guy in the middle of the photo of my band, Dogs Among the Bushes.

And don't forget! Every Tuesday evening, from 8:00-11:00 at McGinty's on the semi-pedestrian zone in Silver Spring, MD, Doc Botzer and I host an Irish seisun featuring some of the best musicians around, and frequent international guest artists. It's all free, and if you play traditional Irish music, bring an instrument and join in. You'll always receive a warm welcome, the craic is mighty, and the Guinness excellent!

Special note: The great Joe Byrne of J. Patrick's in Baltimore passed away on July 7, 2012. Joe was a great supporter of Irish music and dance, and helped many of us over the years. I played in three consecutive bands at J. Patrick's on a monthly basis--Reeltime in the late 80's, The Irish Edge in the 90's, and The Hedgerows in the 2000's. The Hedgerows have been playing the first Fridays and Saturdays of the month, and hope to continue. Joe Patrick Byrne will be deeply missed.
