I recently returned from another action-packed Canadian Country Music Weekend in Edmonton where I am always happy to reconnect with my fun and friendly dysfunctional family:) I performed at the Songwriters Series out there for my fourth time. It's one of my favourite things - to be in the round with other writers as we swap songs and stories in front of such an attentive audience.
When I get the chance to travel across Canada, sometimes different provinces can feel like entering another country with its own geography, history and culture and I love the adventure of it all. Naturally you'd think with my accent I would be drawn to the east. However, over the years I have actually been to western Canada a lot more than the east. Indeed, next month my road leads me back to Alberta for some dates.
I'll be playing the Uptown Folk Club in Edmonton on October 3rd, a house concert in Peace River and the Fish Creek Concert Series in Calgary on October 10th, with some inspiring songwriting dates sprinkled along the way. If you're in the vicinity of any of these shows, please come on out and say hello.
Thanks as always for listening and reading. See you down the road.
