Last long weekend of the summer but what a summer it was. I had my first trip to Canmore and I played at the Canmore Folk Festival. It was an amazing experience, the volunteers and sound people were fantastic. Then before my feet came back to earth it was time to play the Edmonton Folk Festival. An amazing event with a dedicated army of volunteers and a sea of people out on the hills. A completely addicting experience......I know I want to go may take a while but I definitely want to go back. Then there was the small but friendly and warm Come By the Hills Festival in the Battle river valley. The perfect desert after a huge Folk Festival meal. I met so many people, musicians, and fans this summer.

Ode to Tennyson has spread its wings and landed at various stations and desks around the country. Here are links to a couple of reviews.

 Stay tuned for my big CD release concert announcement coming soon.......

Time flies when you are Having Fun.

Wow I can't believe it is July already. As you can see in the banner I have released my latest CD "Ode to Tennyson". Barry and Gord and all of the musicians made the whole project so much fun and I can't wait to share it with everyone. I was just at the Volunteer party for the Heart of the City Festival. I played the festival in June on a beautiful sunny day. The old Strathcona Artwalk has come and gone with the School of Song (including yours truly) providing musical entertainment. I played at Alberta Beach and the Grain elevators in St. Albert after which I headed down to the legislature to enjoy the great sights, sounds and fireworks. I spent a couple of days in Red Deer playing at the Ross Street Patio as part of the Best Summer Ever. The first day was so hot I thought I would melt and the next threatened thunderstorms but nothing deterred the crowd and the fun had by all. The Gallery House Concerts gave me a great welcome in Calgary. They even fed me homemade soup. I met some great people, sold some CD's and got to make friends and meet fans. I have been taking a sound recording class and believe it or not a rap songwriting class. Maybe I will try performing one of my rap songs accompanied by my banjo; rap folk. Now I have rehearsals with violinists and other musicians getting ready for the Canmore and Edmonton Folk Festivals along with the rest of the School of Song gang. Thanks to CBC, Kaos radio and CKUA for playing my music. 

bye for now
