Howdy Folks - got lots cookin' up for a busy and musical 2013..!
But January will have me mainly in 'planning and booking' mode... looking to book some mid-Ontario shows in April, so if anyone would like to host a house concert or has venue suggestions in your town please let me know...!
Getting some new photos taken this week, and will be doing some major site updating over the next few weeks to freshen things up here on allisonbrown.ca.
My next show is coming up at Taloola - a special birthday show featuring some surprise special guests... Friday, February 8th..!
Gearing up for performances at WINTERFOLK XI happening at the Delta Chelsea Hotel in Toronto from February 14th to the 17th. Stay tuned for workshop and concert times and locations. Also on Sunday, February 17th I'll be playing a special church show at Emmanuel Howard Park United Church in Roncesvalles at 10:30am, Monday, February 18th I'll be special guesting with the Hamstrung Stringband at The Local.. and on Wednesday, February 20th I'm doing a song-swap show with Manitoba Hal and Shawna Caspi at The Tranzac...!
This all before showcasing in Will Gillespie's Old World Romance Suite at Folk Alliance International - also happening at the Delta Chelsea... so I'll have about a week and a half in Toronto in February - hope to reconnect and visit with pals in the big smoke...!
In the meantime I'm looking ahead to gigs in Mid-Ontario in early April, my first trip to Nashville in Mid-April and starting a NEW RECORD in May. Yes, new record. With new songs on it.
Thankfully I still have a job as a motorcycle mama- still selling raffle tickets for the United Way Harley Davidson, you can get your ticket for the draw on February 11th online at http://www.weareunited.com/harley.
Gearing up for a big year - see you all soon!!
