April tour

Happy New Year. And in all the years to come. New material, new instruments in the mix, new arrangements, and some new clothes. I’m happy, specifically, to tell you that our Spring Tour is falling into place nicely. It’s especially gratifying that people are still interested in live music, despite these hard times and and uncertain futures. […]

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 […]

Keep calm and carry-on

My recent trip compels me to remind all fellow travellers that these simple steps will make my trip much easier and more enjoyable. My trip. Security: Upon reaching security, try to be ready. Yes, please have your liquids in a bag  and ready to put in a tray. Burying them in your purse and/or backpack […]

To Italy from a changed world

On Monday, we return to the complicated country of Italy, paradoxically so elegant and beautiful while so politically rough and – well – less than beautiful. And yet it continues to charm. Rhythms change from region to region, customs vary – sometimes dramatically. Salted bread? Unsalted bread? Fork and knife for pizza? Hands? A fork […]

Star Island – The Isles of Shoals

Just back from the magical Star Island ( http://starisland.org/ )  part of the Isles of Shoals off the coast of New Hampshire. Writer’s in the Round – poets, songwriters – all meeting to cross-pollinate. It was my pleasure to be a facilitator – teaching is too strong a word. The great difference between this experience and previous songwriting […]

November 4th in Lucca

Today is the day Italians commemorate the end of WWI. Around the corner, a brass band plays patriotic music, and speeches are being made. It’s raining. The red tile roofs and the golden trees are a dramatic contrast to the grey sky. Very beautiful. The anthemic music, the handsome uniforms, the solemn faces and the […]

Coffee, gelato, bad book

We chose a new neighbourhood in which to stay in Rome this time, close to the Pantheon. I was hesitant, knowing that it would be close to a tourist site, packed with people and teeming with the sellers of cheap toys and cheaper umbrellas. But our apartment is six flights up, overlooking a quiet(ish) piazza. […]

Where am I?

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, […]

Where was I?

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 […]

Bow River Folk Club

One of those nights. Late start, sinus problems, throat of razor blades…well, we all have nights like that. The air here is so arid that the few bits of laundry i washed out yesterday dried during soundcheck..not kidding. Hung them up at 3:45, they were dry by 5:00. Crazy dry. On the way to Medicine […]
