I’ve been rolling in and out of Toronto’s Union Station quite a lot in the past few years. In that time, the station has been under construction, gradually reshaping the busy central transportation hub.
A lot has changed at Union Station. This summer, there’s a vibrant market out front with an intriguing inventory of tasty treats.
On Monday, August 3 from noon – 1:00pm I’ll be playing a free outdoor show out on the plaza in front of Union Station to celebrate the revitalization, the market, the summer. The Union Summer series is presented by Osmington and Folk Music Ontario. Come out and have some fun in the city centre!
I’m thinking of starting my own “Train Station Set” bingo card – I’ll finally be able to add Toronto to the list that currently includes Vancouver, Jasper, Winnipeg, Montreal, and Halifax.
I’m currently in Nova Scotia, stuffed with freshly-caught seafood and freshly-picked strawberries. This past weekend, I had the pleasure of performing at the Harmony Bazaar Festival of Women & Song in Lockeport. Highlights include: An inspiring songwriting workshop with Melissa Ferrick, an intimate acoustic set of songs and stories at the local library, and a big finale on the main stage with Irish Mythen and friends to close it all off.
I spent many hours walking along the beach, breathing in the briny air, and listening to the waves roll in. We had perfect weather for the whole festival. What a treat to be back on the south shore!
Next up in August – I’ll be playing at the Union Summer concert series in Toronto, the TD Harbour Nights concert series in Owen Sound, and then a tour of British Columbia.
