August is trailing off and cool breezes are in the air - bringing along Uncle Dan to round out the summer with a mini-tour with my pal Ali McCormick, and the Shelter Valley Folk Festival!

We kick off the mini-tour with a stop in Guelph at The Cornerstone for a Wednesday night show on August 30th with our pal Max Marshall - don't miss this first time quartet appearance! PWYC, 9:00pm!  Ali, Dan and I go from there to a special house concert at Amherst Island's Topsy Farms on Thursday, August 31st - email for details

Labour Day weekend brings us to the Shelter Valley Folk Festival near Cobourg where I'll be doing some stage hosting through the day and singing a few songs!  It's the finale of the 13 year festival history so be sure to be there!

Holiday Monday, September 4th brings us to The Old Church Theatre in Trenton/Quinte for an afternoon concert beginning at 2pm! Perfect way to wrap up your Shelter Valley weekend just 35 minutes on your way to Kingston from the festival site.  Tickets are $15 in advance/$20 at the door - don't take a chance, get your tickets in advance here:

Taking a 'gig-break' for September where I'll be living on beautiful Pelee Island working for the whole month at the Pelee Island Winery.  I'll be off the radar for a while, working, writing, and enjoying all this magical southern Ontario island has to offer!

Then, in October I hit the road with the Queen Of Vancouver Island, Carolyn Mark! We'll be performing in Waterloo, Hamilton, London, Toronto, Peterborough, Wakefield and more - stay tuned to the concerts page for updates!

See you at Shelter Valley and along our road to the festival !

August is already rolling along and I'm just back on the radar after a magical weekend at Pelee Island Unplugged, fantastic music and still feeling the island vibes!  This weekend I'm on deck for some stage hosting throughout the Kingsville Folk Festival weekend August 11th to 13th at Lakeside Park in Kingsville - I'll be joining the always fashion-forward Magoo as a co-host for Friday night's mainstage!

On the flipside of the KFF weekend, I'll be headed right to Stratford to play a few songs from back in the Perth County Conspiracy days at the Black Swan Coffeehouse Revival Fundraiser on Monday, August 14th!

Later on in the month I'll be performing at Leamington's Sip And Savour Festival on Friday, August 18th for a solo set beginning at 8:00pm, and I head to Amherstburg the following weekend for a noon set in the craft tent at Fort Malden on Saturday, August 26th at Art By The River.  .. great gigs in my Southwestern Ontario stompin' grounds to round out August.

I'll be heading out on a mini-tour with the 'Lioness of Lanark County', Ali McCormick at the end of the month, up in Guelph at the Cornerstone on August 30th with our pal Max Marshall... 

and then to Amherst Island for a special house concert at The Wool Shed at Topsy Farms on August 31st before heading to the Shelter Valley Folk Festival near Cobourg where I'll be doing some stage hosting and workshops!

Labour Day brings us to Trenton for an afternoon concert Monday, September 4th at the Old Church Theatre!  Tickets are available online - so get yours in advance here:

Here's a few photos from my recent summer rambles; see you at home and on the road!
