Home County Music & Art & Folk Festival is coming up super soon in Victoria Park here in London on July 18th, 19th and 20th!
I'm kicking off the festival with the first set of the whole weekend at 6:00pm sharp on the Bandshell Mainstage. Joining me on the Mainstage is Jedd House on upright bass, Vera Colley on accordion and harmony vocals and the ultimately talented Uncle Dan Henshall on mandolin. Stick around for Trent Severn, Jenn Grant and headliners Whitehorse! I'll also be playing as part of the Bluegrass Bonanza tribute to Ken Palmer at 3:00pm on Saturday, leading the Gospel Workshop with Sweet Alibi, The Schotts, Cold Specks and more on Sunday at noon, and Sunday afternoon an all-gals song swap at 4:30. This Tuesday, July 15th at 7pm on 94.9fm CHRW's Southern Ontario Comfort I'll be interviewing Saturday headliner Ashley MacIsaac! Check out the full mainstage and workshop schedule at:
