Supernatural British Columbia

September 21, 2018

How lucky am I to spend time on the west coast, not once, not twice, but THREE times this year! The weather was perfect in British Columbia as I toured and hiked my way from Vancouver to the interior and back.

I’ll admit the outdoor gig in Olympia, Washington was a bit chilly! But the post-gig trek through Snoqualmie Falls Park was a sweet reward.

Next up are two shows in Pittsburgh this weekend, followed by four days in a Toronto hotel, showcasing at the Folk Music Ontario conference. Angel points to whoever keeps me constantly hydrated with nutrient rich smoothies!

My summer was filled with music and travel and friends old and new. I’m gearing up for a fall filled with much of the same, only maybe with longer sleeves and multi-coloured leaves.

For the home base crowd, I’m playing at one of the best rooms in Toronto, the Burdock, on September 8, just before I fly out to BC. I’ll be opening for Australian artist Glenn Skuthorpe at his album release show. Tickets are on sale now.

Forest Fire just turned one year old and I am so grateful for all the support I’ve received for this project. Stay tuned for new songs and new adventures.

Festivals are the best of all

Thanks to everyone at the ArtsWells Festival Of All Things Art for the opportunity to perform amid such talented and creative people in a unique setting. I even got to sing […]

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 […]

Shout out to home base!

Hey Toronto, I’m playing a rare local show tonight at the Painted Lady with some of my friends. I’d love to see you there before another interstate steals me away.

Bergy Bits

June 12, 2018

Every once in the while, the road gives me one of those awesome firsts – like the first time I saw the Rocky Mountains, or Lake Superior off of Highway 17, or the Badlands in Alberta. I’m still waiting for my first Northern Lights sighting, although I did get to see a moose close up […]
