Deep, deep roots

What a great Festival, this Deep Roots in Wolfville. Here we are on the mainstage Friday night. Fun, but for me, the highlights were the workshops and the Sunday morning tribute to Ron Hynes. Lennie Gallant, me, Cindy, Jill and Matthew Barber, Kim Dunn, and Jamie Robinson lending a helping hand on guitar. Emotional, funny, […]

ROCA House

Thank you all who came out to ROCA in Thursday night. We were knocked out by the numbers and the incredible response. Robert Campbell and Cailin Marie Green are heroes. What they bring to the arts scene here is welcome and necessary. Folks give the artists applause, but places like this give artists their livelihood. Bravo, […]

The end of the affair. Sort of.

Too much

After my recent tour with Cindy Church, I repeatedly heard that I should keep up my blog. I seldom get a response, so I figured: why keep doing it? Seems self-indulgent. But, I’m willing to try again. So…what’s been going on? Our tour was great. Several sold-out houses and really great audiences.We’re looking forward to a reprise […]

Gearing up for April

Just to let you know that our little tour starts a month from today….check out the dates and places. As for the photo here, that’s Cindy with the sax. I’m the one with the hat. The guy grabbing the sax is our opening act who just will not give up.
