It’s official! The long-awaited CD release party will take place at Vancouver’s ANZA Club on Thursday 6th March, 2014. Representing the cream of British Columbia’s music scene and joining me on stage will be album contributors John Ellis, Rob Becker, and Pat Steward, with others yet to be announced. Watch this space for more news and musical morsels leading up to the event.
My upcoming BFH (Bus Fair Home) tour will probably be the shortest tour in music biztory. My oldest brother turned 50 in September, so I made the impulsive decision to attend his party and “help with a couple of barrels of ale.” Of course, I’ll be mixing pleasure with business and have lined up a couple of shows at my two destinations of Isleworth and Burton on Trent, with a couple of folk club appearances thrown in for good measure. Here’s the itinerary:
I spent my late-teens/early-twenties living in Burton on Trent, and the Coopers Tavern was on the pub crawl into town. I have fond memories of the impromptu sing-alongs that often erupted there. The house guitar usually had no more than 4 strings.
We’ve just put the finishing touches on the new album and it’s now in the hands of ace mixing engineer, Sheldon Zaharko. And if you sign up to my newsletter (over on the right), I’ll give you exclusive access to preview one of my fav tracks. Also, John and I will be airing some of the new material at a one off show at Cafe Deux Soleils at 8:00pm Sunday 22nd September supporting our good buddies from Winnipeg, The Bros. Landreth (see Shows page for details).
I got to perform my song “Sailing from Nanaimo” to a sold-out crowd at the namesake city’s idyllic Dinghy Dock Pub. Thanks to Got Pop? Concerts for giving me a half-hour guest spot to kick off their “On the Dock” Acoustic Series.
