Musicians for Musicians

I’ve got goosebumps thinking about all of the amazing musicians who are donating their time to perform at our Musicians for Musicians 2017 concert to help raise money for AFM/CFM Local 820‘s NL Musicians’ Emergency Relief Fund. Tune into CBC TV’s “Here and Now” tonight to hear me speak about why I helped start up this fund as well as checking out these articles in The Overcast: https://theovercast.ca/jam-packed-line-up-for-nl-musicians-emergency-fund-show and The Muse: http://themuse.ca/2017/10/19/support-st-johns-musicians-show-at-the-ship-helps-musicians-in-need

New Brunswick Tour / MusicNL Award Nomination

Home sweet home in St. John’s after driving 6400 km. From St. John’s to Fredericton to Saint John to Evandale to Sussex to Bathurst to Lameque Island to Cheticamp Island to Stephenville to Burgeo and the long drive home. 2 awesome mechanics for the flat tire and cranky muffler, so many beautiful sunsets, inspiring music, my lovely Acadian family, delicious food and so much more. To top it all off? Arriving at home to discover a MusicNL nomination for Instrumental Recording of the Year for SUNSET SUNRISE! It feels good to be home with this warm heart and so many wonderful memories. To all of you who I was so fortunate to spend time with on the road, THANK YOU. Sending a special thanks to Floodstock and Third Shift – Art Works After Dark in Saint John for such amazing performing experiences. I can’t wait to tour through New Brunswick again.
