Well, it's been a busy and enjoyable start to 2018! Catching my breath back here on the Sunshine Coast after a lovely two week tour of southern Vancouver Island, I am left amazed and inspired by the folk scene there! Promoting my first Victoria concert, I visited a number of folk clubs, playing open stages, and listening to some fabulous music, all the while making new friends and fans along the way.
In addition, Anna and I spent several hours fine tuning the setlist, and rehearsing for our joint concert at the funky Spiral Cafe in West Victoria. Thanks to the support of proprietors Joy Kruger and Mike Raymer, along with some great promotion by Sharon Hazelwood, host of CFUV Radio's "Sunshine Breakfast", we were able to pull together a wonderful audience on an evening sprinkled with fabulous musical events across the city, not to mention Bruce Cockburn! (Darn it, missed my hero again!)
And so, it's back to work on the new album, and prepare for our next show on February 15 here in our home town of Gibsons. We will be performing a two hour concert from 2-4pm at the Zocalo location of the One Flower One Leaf Gallery's Sensuality Art Exhibition. The theme? Romance, of course! A Valentine's Day after party, if you will. Hope to see all you lovers and Beachcombers out there!
