I can’t believe it’s August already and I haven’t booked a holiday! I guess when my work brings me so much joy and happiness, I forget sometimes that I’m actually working!
If you’ve never been to Westben, just outside of Campbellford, ON, please check it out. It’s a beautiful old barn converted into a theatre with sides that open to allow sunshine and fresh air through. It is a classy venue and set up.
The Mushy Peas and I played Westben last weekend and realized it was exactly 15 years ago, to the day, that we did our first ever show together at the Glengarry Highland Games! I am so lucky to have them on my team!
We are preparing for the Enterprise Jamboree this weekend and then on to the Shelburne Fiddle Contest after that to perform two shows. I know it will be a reunion of fellow fiddlers as always.
Cobden Fair and the Canadian Grand Masters’ Fiddle Camp will wrap up my summer schedule but it looks to be a busy fall season ahead too!
If you’re anywhere around the Kingston area in September, check out the Blue Skies Adult Music Camp in Battersea. I will be teaching there with Lynn Myles and Keith Glass. Should be a great new experience!
The International Plowing Match has us performing in Finch in late September. That’s always a fun and interesting event. Following that will be the Bereaved Families of Cornwall Annual Gala which is an incredible and magical evening for a wonderful Cause.
My busy season wraps up with my Induction into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame! I don’t think that has hit me yet!!!! It will SOON I’m sure!
Enjoy your summer and I hope to see you over the next month or so! Thanks for stopping by. Drop me a note any time. I will try to check in soon!
