August is on the horizon after a relaxing July here in Windsor... been working on a few things amid the lazy sweltering summer weather... updates to allisonbrown.ca! You can now listen to, purchase and download selections from my whole discography on the 'Music' page directly. Soon most of these will be available on I-Tunes as well.
Coming up in August I'll be playing three sets on Saturday, August 4th at the Roots To Boots Festival in Amherstburg commemorating the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. Lonesome Lefty is my special guest accompanist.. I'm on at 3pm, 5pm and at 8pm!
A busy weekend, Sunday, August 5th I'm back at one of my favourite outdoor venues at the Two Creeks Conservation Area in Wheatley for a concert with songwriter Glen MacNeil.. it's the fish fest weekend in Wheatley so we may reel in a few special fishin' numbers just for the occasion!
August 10th I join a fantastic lineup of local musicians for a fundraiser concert for Life Christian Centre Ministry in Aenon Town, Jamaica. Proceeds from "Workin' On A Building!" go towards a building a new church and helping youth break free from poverty.. tickets are $15.00 at New Song Church.
Thursday, August 16th brings me back to London for a benefit concert for Aeolian Hall..! It's my first London show since back in May - it's been a while so I hope to see a lot of my pals supporting one of Canada's most perfect venues..! It's a stellar lineup - I do a three song set with "Uncle" Dan Henshall!
And my last show of a slow but sweet summer is on August 25th for Art In The Lakeside Park in Kingsville!
Here's to the home stretch of summer - make sure and enjoy it !!
