First Ottawa show of the year, with Lesley from Bonnie Doon as she debuts her new project, GINNY. We’ll be at the Wellington EATERY (not one of the other Wellington-named places to eat on Wellington St.)
It has been too warm in Ottawa to feel like winter is really on the way (and who knows if it will be in January) but just in case, we have planned a very cozy tour of Ontario/Montreal to stay warm and to hang out with old and new friends.
I’m going to be doing my first ever acoustic tour, with Montreal-Ottawa based fiddle and banjo combo, The Noisy Locomotive. I’ve been a fan of these fellows for quite a few years, and am looking forward to hearing them play every night, and singing some songs together. I’m used to playing through a large amplifier, but this cozy tour will be a stripped down set-up, for house shows and we are even playing at the Wolfe Island Pub & Pizzeria for maximum winter survival carb effectiveness. Come join us 😀
Actually, there are a few….it has been a while since I’ve been to Moosonee or Sandy Lake, but I’m glad to be headed to the Soo, Sudbury and North Bay this week. I’ll be at The Townehouse on Wednesday, the 24th of June, and playing a house show on Thursday, the 25.
Playing Ottawa’s Bluesfest, July 17th, on the same night as Canned Heat!
Excited to be in Peterborough twice this month, to play, and for a harmonica workshop. First, I’ll be joining Blues in a Bottle for their Tuesday night March series. I’ve been a big fan of Dave Tough’s songwriting and style for several years, and I’m excited to hear live his band’s take on jug band classics. Tuesday, March 17th.
I’m very excited to announce that I’m part of the first ever Not Quite festival, which is showcasing Peterborough music. I’ll be giving a harmonica workshop and playing a show! Thursday, March 26th.
There are so many great people making Ottawa’s music scene one to be really proud of! Megaphono is shining a big light on some of the people that make Ottawa’s music scene so great, February 3-5th for their first ever festival. Amazing venues include the Diefenbunker, and my favourite, Raw Sugar Cafe, where I’ll be playing with the lovely Jill Zmud and Kristine St. Pierre!
Early show! (so you can catch the rest of the music later that evening!)
Kristine St. Pierre 4pm
Jill Zmud 4:45
