East me, baby...
October 25th, 2009Hi there folks. We are just finishing up a spectacular run around the colourful eastern parts. Fall glory through and through from Newfoundland to Brooklyn NY and here today in Bearsville NY by Woodstock where our Americana homies Jack & Daria Grace hold up. Carolyn Mark, Tolan McNeil and Diona Davies and I sure had a blast in eastern Canada. The roads were mercifully clear of moose for our epic drive across and back across Nflnd. What a great bunch of people they are down east. We oughta all just go there for personality enhancement retreats. Really, I mean it. En route we played the pirates place in St John NB (real pirate) and Halifax at the fabulous Company House. Both of them now my favourite venues anywhere. The Company House is a great addition to the trapline for the travelling bard . Super great sound on stage which I sometimes just really want, and that was one of those nights. Rose Cousins had left cookies for us. What else do you need except for a place to stay? And they had that right upstairs of the club. Carolyn, Tolan & Diona played and sang so great every night and were sporty enough to join me for a good portion of my set so let us just say that everybody won. My new van, Buck Rogers, did us solid too. Geoff and Allison in St J Newfoundland did us super solid on the nesting front as we had 3 shows in 3 clubs and wanted to see as much of the area during the day as possible. Day trips to Quidi Vidi, Signal Hill, Cape Spear (most easterly point in North America), and a few very local pubs rounded out our full bodied, every night more people, (divided by) gourmet, home cooked meals, eastern experience. It is all there for us. LW
East to the sea!!
September 24th, 2009Hi pilgrims, the van is getting pimped out in Ruebebn deGroots driveway as I write this (never been much good with the tools). I just sent the Rueben record off to get mastered yesterday. A masterpiece if I do say so myself. Next Friday I meet up with Carolyn Mark, Tolan & Diona at Pop Montreal and after a nice Mint records afternoon show and we head to Quebec City for the night show. Going to be great to be in the maritimes again. And look out Newfoundland! We will be there for 6 days of fun and shows at the Ship Inn and more http://www.lutherwright.com/tourdates.php Get home in time to be part of the Leonard Cohen tribute at Hughs Room in Toronto October 16 & 17 Then to NYC for a week of shows with the Jack Grace Band!
The CBC radio 2 plays our music!
July 7th, 2009That is right. Check them out all day and night. There is a link on the linky page plus a link to some live footage from a past Hootenennay. Thanks Andrew.
Love is life's great lesson
June 24th, 2009Great summer fun ahead. Check out the tour dates for new shows. Working hard to finish local sensation Rueben deGroots amazing cd. We have a probelm with the code on the website so I cannot use apostrophes. It does not mean I am dumb (er).
All is well on the Kingston front
May 25th, 2009Greetings pilgrims. Working away booking bands at Casey Fishers new club The Mansion. The music takes place in the Living Room and we have had some great bands come through so far. Music every night. And I am finishing up the finer points on Rueben de Groots new cd that we started recording at the end of the year. He is making a big splash on the local scene with his great music, search him out. I laid off chasing too many festivals this summer in order to get the new club off the ground, finish a few projects and get started on a new cd of my own but there is still a mish mash of shows to be played. Looking forward to having Jack Grace and his band back up to Canada at the end of July and we are heading down to NYC and Woodstock area in August to reverse the process. It is hush hush diplomatic work generally. I am staring across the lake at Wolfe Island where a gazillion windmills are just coming online. Hmmm, quite an ordeal for the community over there and we in Kinkytown do not get to keep the power even. I guess it is better than a nuke plant or being Brian Mulroney right now. In music news, I saw my friends band Meatdraw the other night and have already started to cover one of his awesome songs. I think ye next disc of mine will be packing a bunch of my buddies songs to round out my new hits. I cannot stop myself salut, LW
Western Canadian Spring 09 tour
April 15th, 2009Heading west with renowned mandolin player Dan Whiteley and banjo and bassist Jason Mercer. Jason has been out on the road on and off for years with Ron Sexsmith and before that Ani Difranco but we originally met back in his Bourbon Tabernacle Choir days. He plays banjo on every LW and the Wrongs cd since 1998s Rogers Waltz and we have done a series of shows lately in New York city that lead to this collaboration. We will likely feature the banjo, guitar and mandolin in the early part of the show and then move his over to bass for some rocking as the night goes on. Also joining the tour is Mitch Anderson doing Stomping Tom Conners songs. He sings them so well you can smell the potatoes. Check tour dates section and send word to any friends you have nearby. xo.
