After more than 2 months at home, I unpacked from last week-end's Foothills Acoustic Music Institute camp (where I was an instructor for the fourth year in a row) yesterday, and will pack when I finish this post for 4 shows on Vancouver Island. Joe's Garage in Courtenay tomorrow, Duncan Garage Showroom on Friday, a house concert in Campbell River on Saturday, and The Rendezvous Diner in Nanaimo on Sunday. Then home again until just after the Calgary Folk Music Festival, where I'll be appearing with The Hackamores (in addition to Mikey's Juke Joint July 10, The Blues Can July 12, and Carlsons On Macleod in High River July 20th). From August long week-end onward it's the Minstrel Cafe in Kelowna (and a visit with Josh, Heather, and new grandson Charlie;The Roxy on Gabriola Island ; Pier Street Market in Campbell River; Arts Wells Fest; Blue Loon Grill, Clearwater BC; Central Alberta Music Fest; Edmonton International Blues Fest; and a projected tour of Spain before starting work on Alberta Theatre Projects' "Intimate Apparel" as sound designer in the middle of the month.
A deal is in place for the next cd, which awaits some new tunes from me (I'm writing, I'm writing...), and there will be a new post post-Island. Come on out to a show !
