Hi, friends. Good morning! I just finished some grapefruit and have coffee brewing in the French press. Bach is minding his own on the HiFi, and my morning visit with Senior Raul has given me an opportunity to take a few breaths of fresh air. Raul (one of the two featured cats on the back […]

Hello, friends There’s so many good things to tell you about. I have a CD release show and a Western Canadian tour coming up very soon.

In mid November, my musician friend Bernie Moffatt passed away due to complications following a heart attack. I first met Bernie about four years ago at the Brantford Open Stage and again at the Hamilton Folk Club.

I’ve recently done some house concerts that have been amazing experiences. House concerts are gradually becoming more popular and are a clever option for indy musicians and music fans.
