Hope this finds everyone well, enjoying summer. Time’s flying! Must get outside! 🙂
We had a great Canada Day show in Calgary where it was cookin’ hot. Calgary has changed so much… but they still have the best bike paths! Then we did several opening slots for Joan Armatrading. Here’s a fun little photo of the two us (what lovely smiles we have!). The woman is a legend! What a treat it was to do the shows with her and her band! The Calgary shows were hilarious — it was hot as Hades in the church venue but it was quite the religious experience 🙂 Joan had folks waving their hands and dancing in the pews!
Also, just finished playing at the Mission folk fest where I hung out with Annabelle Chvostek (who took my place when I left the Wailin’ Jennys). She too has left the band… amazing to sit and visit and share our experiences. We took part in a hilarious workshop called “Bailin’ Jennys, Outlaws and Fierce Independents”. It was a riot!
Also gearing up for a cross-Canada tour starting in September. Our first tour to the East Coast! In November! Are we crazy? 🙂 The new record is also being released this month in Europe with Rounder Records. We’ll be heading back across the pond in the New Year. Wonder if it will rain… ha ha
Wishing everyone the best. Here’s hoping we get to come to your community soon to share some good music with y’all!
Peace out –
