Chasing the longest days

July 13, 2018

It was an honour to kick off the first show of the Earlville Opera House’s new summer Courtyard Series last weekend. Extra thanks to the brave folks who came out to the afternoon fingerstyle guitar workshop!

The weather was perfect and I had a great time exploring back country roads and hiking along the gorge at Watkins Glen State Park.

I’m about to head out on a whirlwind tour that starts in the northeast USA and then flies to the remote ArtsWells Festival in northern British Columbia, before finally landing back in Ontario at the Kingsville Folk Music Festival. I’m loving the clear roads and the long stretches of daylight. Summer is in high gear.

May 5, 2018

Biscuits, hush puppies and strawberries in May. I’m heading down to North Carolina for the first time in two years. Looking forward to playing in Asheville, Wilmington, and Greensboro. May I be reminded of the roll of the mountains, the sound of waterfalls, the sight of the colour green. Let’s meet in the BBQ queue. […]

What a trip!

April 17, 2018

Spring touring in Canada meant snowstorms in Wells, BC, in Saint John, NB, in Dartmouth, NS, and now as I catch up at home in Toronto. It was a whirlwind five week trip that began in Florida, followed by tours in British Columbia and the east coast, with a cross-country train ride in the middle. […]
