Sorry for the late post, sorry for the brevity, sorry for the pared down writing. I’m in the Halifax airport on my way to Rome, wondering how the last days of our tour slipped by so quickly. After Virden, we forged on to Pinawa, and then to Manitou. in Pinawa, we stayed in the comfortable, [...]
I’ve missed updating on a few shows because of time limitations and this almighty cold. This morning, I’m in Virden, Manitoba – Jays Inn, precisely- having a coffee in a styrofoam cup. Sunday took us to Medicine Hat for a show at the Medalta Clayworks Museum. More on that later. For now, let me tell [...]
