After a bit of a winter rest, I’m looking forward to getting back on the road this week. My show in Toronto at Aioli Bistro on Friday is fully-booked but they are taking names for a waiting list.

After Toronto, I’ll be heading to my hometown of Ottawa on Saturday night, followed by an afternoon show nearby in Russell on Sunday. To cap off this mini house concert tour, I’ll be in Kingston on January 30 (email me for details about that one!).

I’ll have lots of CDs and paintings with me. Looking forward to being back in eastern Ontario!

Conference season

October 15, 2015

The weather’s perfect for biking. The leaves are at their height of crunchiness beneath hiking booted feet. There’s cider on the stove and stew in the oven. But I’ll be putting all that on pause for a few days to dive into the Folk Music Ontario conference in Mississauga. I’ll be performing in several showcases, […]
