BBC says “hello”. Plus, one cat, halfway out of a bag

So, yesterday I had a mailing list email all written out and ready to go, and was about to send it off when I got a message with this little link.  Notice anything interesting? For those that don’t feel like clicking, or need a little background, none-other than ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris, presenter of the classic BBC TV music series the Old Grey Whistle Test played a PBS track on BBC Radio 2 last month!


Now, on with the old show…

…just a quick update to announce some upcoming shows across Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec and Newfoundland.  I can’t release any of those cats from their respective bags I’d told you about before, but will announce the first one next month, and it has to do with a new release coming in April!!!

4 Nova Scotia Shows THIS WEEK!

There will be a bunch of PBS sets this week, including three 7-piece band shows in Halifax!  First off I head down the South Shore for a solo show at the site of the recording of Paper Beat Scissors:  the Old Confidence Lodge, on Wednesday, March 6.  The space we recorded the album is an old Odd Fellows’ Lodge, complete with balconied theatre.  After that it’s back to Halifax for some shows during the East Coast Music Awards Week at the Seahorse and the Khyber.  The Khyber show is part of a Forward Music label ‘revue’ – tickets are a hot commodity and we’ve already sold-out of the 7pm show and have added a second show that night at 10pm – get your tickets in advance if you don’t want to miss out over here!!!

March 6: Riverport, NS – Confidence Lodge, 3831 HWY 332: email for advance tickets
March 8: Halifax, NS – the Seahorse
March 9: Halifax, NS – the Khyber get tickets here!!!

Upper Canada, Hello Soon!

I will be in Toronto for a solo show during Canada Music Week at the end of the month. I’m sad to announce that this will be industry-only – I’m working on a public show during that week and will let you know how it pans out.  Happierly for those in Montreal, I’ll be back at my home-away-from-home Casa Del Popolo for a show April 3rd with Backward Music label-mate Josh Van Tassel.

March 22: Toronto, ON – CMW, the Rivoli, invite-only
April 3: Montreal, PQ – Casa Del Popolo

Newfoundland, I’m Coming Back!

I’m very proud to announce I’ve been asked to perform at the wickedcool Lawnya Vawnya Festival in St. John’s, Newfoundland in late April.  Although my last visit I did manage to eat me some cod cheeks and scruncheons (spell-check!?) I didn’t make it up to Signal Hill, so I have unfinished business to attend to!

April 18-21: St. John’s, NL – Lawnya Vawnya Festival
