October 4th, 2017Well, autumn is here in the hills after a super fun summer. We have slowed down the performing as the empty tour dates section shows, but that is all good in the grand scheme of things. I have really never taken any time off of playing live since the pre Internet days so the strange sensation is oddly pleasing, yet bizarre. I recently came into possession of a fine new Martin acoustic guitar though and could not be happier about the current line up of the band with Tara Dunphy and Kelsey McNulty in the ranks. So it is a stable foundation to leave fallow while I see if I can come up with something worthy of your attention. Hugh Christopher Brown has got Wolfe Island Records chugging along and I am going to continue my collaboration with him and many of the other musicos I call family. So stay tuned for future magic!
May Day yay!
May 1st, 2017May first has arrived and the list of fun things to do is growing! In some sort of order here is what is on deck. Right some soon is the first festival of the season, County Pop Festival at the wonderful Crystal Palace in Picton on Prince Edward County. Hello good times! The fest features a slew of fine talent including bill & Joel Plaskett and Terra Lightfoot. I am part of a fantastic Leonard Cohen Tribute up in Chelsea/Wakefield, Quebec. We held one spectacular, sold out event already and are set to do another night in Chelsea on June 9th. I will be ranting out a version of The Future as well as countryfying The Chelsea Hotel. Fun! Hugh Christopher Brown is kicking off Wolfe Island Records to unite all of the great albums he has been recording and producing on the island including our Hearts and Lonely Hunters album. Other artists on the label and appearing at the two day event are David Corley, Suzanne Jarvie, The Openhearts Society and more. We may even do a Butterfingers show for the junior chipmunks. And our drummer Wrong Casey Fisher is launching his brewery the same weekend, hic... The Skeleton Park Arts and Music Festival is back for its 11thyear and I will be hosting the days in the Park with Fred Penner as well as appearing in the Hootenanny Revue. The line up is just our now and features our girl Sarah Harmer as headliner on the Saturday night as well as Yuka, Old Man Luedecke, Justin Rutledge and more. What a spectacular event to be involved in yet again. And the wheels are in motion for a very special weekend event I will be curating at the fabulous Opinicon Lodge in Chaffeys Locks in the heart of the Rideau system. I will post more specifics when we get closer to the JUly 7 and 8th date.
And let the spring begin, please...
