In April, we take the bike on it’s biggest tour yet – starting off with two shows in North Carolina, followed by a two-week run at the Cultch in Vancouver, a night on Salt Spring Island, and then a week in the Maritimes. From sea to shining sea! I am so very excited to have this show stretching out across the country, it’s a dream come true. Thanks to the Ontario Arts Council’s Touring Programming for supporting us in our travels this spring.
Also very excited to also announce that we’ll be doing a week of performances around the Northwest Territories next fall - more details to come about that.
Speaking of the North – thanks to Tom Coxworth at CKUA radio in Alberta who played the (pre-release, burned CD of) “To Live in the Age of Melting: Northwest Passage Revisited” on his show last week. Thanks to all the nice responses I’ve had to that single play! The piece will soon be given a digital release. As of now, it exist only in the hands of Tom and a couple other folk DJ’s who happened to get it from me at Folk Alliance last weekend in Toronto…but soon, soon…. soon there will be a download for you. watch this space. for now, i’ll just tell you there is some seriously beautiful cover art by Elysha Poirier in the works…and if you are in Toronto, come to the house concert on March 22 to see some live video that we’re creating to go with the piece, first public showing.
