Even a rainy Saturday couldn’t bring down the audience at Summerfolk last weekend. The hearty crowd in Owen Sound was rewarded with a festival-perfect day on Sunday. Here’s a photo from the dynamic “Six Strings and Truth” workshop on Sunday afternoon with Adam Crossman, Olivier Rondeau, and Tim Edey.
Next week, I make my way to northern Ontario, with shows in Barrie, South River, Richards Landing, and Thessalon. The last time I was up in the Soo area, I got to hike to beautiful Aubrey Falls. I later wrote an instrumental guitar piece inspired by that hike, which can be found on Apartments for Lovers. Here’s a painting of the falls, which I’ll have for sale at the merch table, along with my new album.
What glorious days they would be. Thank you for an incredible start to the month, Blue Skies Music Festival! Here’s a snapshot from my main stage performance under the stars:
This weekend, I’m at the Summerfolk Music & Crafts Festival at Kelso Beach in Owen Sound. My performance schedule includes:
Saturday, August 16: noon – Under the Willows Wine Bar (solo concert)
Saturday, August 16: 3:00pm: Gazebo Stage (dark songs workshop w/ Jon Brooks, Oh Susanna, and Leela Gilday)
Sunday, August 17: 1:20pm: Homemade Jam Stage (guitar workshop w/ Tim Edey, Adam Crossman, and Olivier Rondeau)
I sold out of paintings so I made a few new ones to bring to Summerfolk. Here’s the festival site, from a photo I took in 2012:
If you snap that one up, it can be festival season on your desk or mantle all year long. See you under the big tents!
