Outrageous October

October has been a world wind. Ode to Tennyson is nominated for Young Performer of the Year. This is my 4th year in a row to be nominated and given the amazing people in the category I feel truly honoured to be listed with them. This means I am off to Ottawa at the end of November.

The CD release concert at the Roxy with the Doll Sisters was amazing. The Roxy is such a fabulous venue with great people. Hopefully I will have some video up from the concert soon.

FMO concert in Toronto was an incredible marathon. It was my first time at a FMO type of conference. Learned a lot, saw a lot, played a lot, slept not so much and wish I could have talked more. Next time I want to get there earlier (not fly in 10PM Friday night), not have laryngitis (started getting sick Friday night), and talk with more random people (Fading voice left me the choice save it to sing or use it to talk). I can't thank Shelley Montreuil (Chicks that Rock), Grier Coppins (Highland Bro's), and Andrew Mason (Newbies and Oldies) enough for letting me take part in their private showcases. They were all very welcoming. Shelley even provided some medicinal beverage for my dad's sore throat. An unexpected surprise was being able to join in jamming and sharing songs with the gang at the Borealis Hootenany on Saturday night. While at the conference I had a live interview with Jan Hall (Folk Roots Radio) on CFRU. I had the opportunity to share some songs from Ode to Tennyson plus play some new songs I have started to collect. I also got to meet with Andy Frank who has enjoyed playing Ode to Tennyson on his show on CUIT.

A big hello to Kamloops BC. Ode to Tennyson has made it to CFBX where as of October it has reached #13 on the top 30 chart and #4 on the Top 10 Roots Albums. If I tour in BC this summer I will have to find a place to play in Kamloops. Anybody have any suggestions where?

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 back....it 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.
