Fall tour wrap up

November 28, 2017

The fall Forest Fire tour came to an end on Friday night, with an intimate show in a beautiful space. Thanks to Chris White for taking this photo from the back of the room at allsaints Event Space:

It was the perfect ending to a hectic tour full of long solo drives and tight flight connections.

Thanks to everyone who supported Forest Fire with pre-orders, radio airplay, newspaper articles, concert tickets, and encouraging words. It was particularly special to share my Toronto CD release with an excellent band made up of Kev Corbett, Bret Higgins, and Rosalyn Dennett. It’s an honour to make music with you.

Here’s a clip from that night. Thank you, again. New adventures are waiting in the new year.

Tickets are on sale now for my Ottawa CD release concert at allsaints Event Space.

Ottawa Life previewed the show with a feature and in-depth interview in the latest issue. I talk about working at Rasputin’s Folk Cafe, buying my first acoustic guitar at the Ottawa Folklore Centre, skating on the canal, and running around backstage at the National Arts Centre.

This week, I’ll be in Connecticut to showcase at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance conference. Then it’s Ontario all the way until the end of the month – including the FULL BAND show coming up in Toronto on November 16. Hope to see you out there!

In the wake of the #metoo hashtag wildfire and the stories of survivors surfacing now, then, or never, I’m posting a reminder that my song Not So Silent is available as a free mp3 […]

Where the tall trees grow

October 13, 2017

After spending much of these fall days driving across the United States, it’s been really nice to spend some time back in Canada in the land of the great big trees – Vancouver Island. If anyone truly knows Forest Fires, it’s the province of British Columbia. I have a couple of house concerts remaining on […]

Midwest month

October 2, 2017

Had some wacky weather last week in New York and Massachusetts – it started in the sweltering heat, then dropped 30 degrees. Kind folks and radios led the way this time. If you missed my performance on the Folk Revival on WICN, it’s available on the podcast online until October 12. Or read Geoff Wilbur’s […]
