June is upon us and summer in Southwestern Ontario will soon be in full bloom!  Got a few shows coming up in June and July that keep me down here in the stompin' grounds and up to the big smoke for a rare Toronto show!

This weekend I team up with the one and only Lonesome Lefty for a night of songs at the Bridge House in Kingsville from 9:00pm to 1:00am on Saturday, June 3rd! Holy Smokes! 19 Main Street E., Kingsville.  No cover!

Saturday, June 10th brings me up to the city for a rare Toronto show as part of the Distillery District music series where I'll be joined by a surprise special guest!  2pm to 4pm!

Later on in June I join up with Lauren Baillargeon and her band of family and friends for a special fundraiser in Amherstburg for Kids Curing Cancer on Sunday, June 25th! 2:00pm at St. Andrew's Church, donations all towards helping these super kids fight cancer!

Thrilled to be working for a few weeks through July in Exeter as a Production Assistant for The Bach Music Festival of Canada, where I'll be helping with setting up and helping organize this fabulous festival of concerts celebrating the music of Bach!

Friday, July 7th brings me back to Pelee Island Winery for an afternoon of music with Karen Morand from 4pm to 8pm... and later in August I'll be back on Pelee to play as part of the Pelee Unplugged Festival!

See you out in the summer sun!

Spring is springing in Southern Ontario and it's time to plant seeds and ideas for another great summer of adventures...

Just added some new videos to my Youtube Channel from two shows at The Duncan Showroom, one solo, and one with Sweet Potato Brown... here's one for "Your Enemy":
Two Gillian Welch covers along with Shelley Brown and Paul Morelli (Sweet Potato Brown), here's Miss Ohio:

I'm spending most of May and June here at the homestead hideout devising schemes, searching for work, doing some freelance projects and planning out some adventures... June 25th at is my next performance, part of a Kids Curing Cancer Fundraiser in Amherstburg featuring Lauren Baillargeon and her band of family and friends! St. Andrew's Church, 2pm! On July 1st I'll be celebrating Canada's 150th Birthday in Utopia for a concert along with String Bone at the Utopia Hall..!

Super excited to be part of this year's Pelee Unplugged on Pelee Island where I'll be bringing along Uncle Dan for a Sunday afternoon set.  Mark August 5th and 6th on your calendar and get your tickets, camping and ferry reservation for what promises to be Southern Ontario's best weekend ever!

Later on the horizon in August I'm booking a few shows with the 'Lioness Of Lanark County', Ali McCormick around the Kingston area, we have two on the books - we'll be playing double shows on Amherst Island and at the Old Church Theatre in Trenton. Sandwiched between, on Labour Day weekend I'll be doing some stage hosting at the Shelter Valley Folk Festival!

Summer hasn't started yet and I'm already looking at an exciting fall tour with the one and only Queen of Vancouver Island, Carolyn Mark in October in venues around Ontario - if you'd like us gals to stop in your town for a house concert or party, give a shout!

Keep tuning in Thursday mornings from 10:30 to Noon on CJAM 99.1fm,, for "Border City Roots".. lots of interviews and festival previews coming up including Ian Foster, Richard Garvey and more!

Happy gardening !!
