LIVE @ The Griffin (Bracebridge) • Sat. May 4

Cherry picking. I can’t say enough good things about The Griffin (Bracebridge, ON). My inaugural performance here on Friday April 5thwas magical from my end. There’s a certain energy to what I do, as there is with any artist, and when like-minded people are in attendance, there’s a synergy that happens. This particular show was …

LIVE @ The Burleigh Falls Inn (Burleigh Falls) – Sun. May 12

Rite of passage. Mother’s Day always feels like the start of the summer to me. I’ve performed on this day for almost a decade, always close to home in the Kawarthas. From my vantage point, it’s a very communal celebration. I see faces that I haven’t seen since Labour Day. Everyone emerges from their winter …

LIVE @ The Griffin (Bracebridge) – Fri. Apr. 5 – Sat. May 4

Blow at high dough. Had a great show a couple of weeks ago in Peterborough. I’m performing a lot of new material—everything from the Tragically Hip to new original songs. It’s fun to take risks, be they with audience favourites out of one’s comfort zone, or with new material altogether. I’ve always had a great …

Kings and queens and guillotines. I’m pleased to announce a public, and rather spontaneous, new show. I’ll be performing this Saturday at Castle John’s (Peterborough, ON). The show will be from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. Music will span the usual realm. I’ve been watching a lot of Black Crowes live performances lately, so transitions …

Is this love? I’m looking forward to returning to the Burleigh Falls Inn on Thursday February 14, 2019 for Valentine’s Day. I’ve been performing here on Valentine’s Day for a number of years.

3 birds – 2 shows – Jan. 16 – Feb. 14

Spotlight: Three Birds live-in-studio recording. Back in March I recorded a live-in-studio version of Three Birds by Bob Marley. For any of you that follow my work, you’ll know that this is not an obvious choice. It certainly is not in my instinctive wheelhouse, chock full of open tunings and unresolved chords. I added a …

Highlights in the private event space included a wedding with Ashley Pigott Events on Lake Joseph, a corporate event at Chateau des Charmes Winery, and a near brush with …

Upcoming Shows – Kawarthas – Muskoka – Toronto

Life in the music business goes from the sublime to the ridiculous, traversing just about every shade and hue in the process. There have been some really nice private events over the past couple of weeks. There was blue-bird day with phenomenal natural acoustics at the Holland Marsh Winery (Newmarket, ON), followed by similarly expansive …
