Saturday, April 5th brings me to the 'prestigious' St Regis Tavern for Musical Chairs! along with my good pals Uncle Dan Henshall and Will Gillespie for some songs in the round. We haven't played all together in a while - so excited for this 'reunion'..! Starts about 9:00, Pay What You Can and yes, there will be a baked goods raffle (if all goes well, ginger cookies baked by me!)
Next up we make your Good Friday a little bad in the goodest of ways down in Windsor at Villains Beastro.. Friday, April 18th I take the stage again along with Will Gillespie, Uncle Dan and Vera Colley.. starts about 10pm, Pay What You Can
April 24th I'm back for my second time at Call The Office with Uncle Dan opening up for Black N' Bluegrass and the Slocan Ramblers, $5 dollars in advance $7 at the door, starts about 9 or so... Robocop loves Bluegrass so be sure and stop by.
I'm also thrilled to report I've been awarded a songwriting grant from the Ontario Arts Council's Popular Music program... so yes, that means there will be new songs this year. Lots of songs. Way more than ever before.
And yep - summer is exploding with festivals; Home County in London, Island Unplugged on Pelee Island and the very first Kingsville Folk Festival in Kingsville - more dates to be announced!
Talk about a springboard into the hot part of the year... see you out there!
