Goin' Where Them Chilly Winds Don't Blow

The middle of November and Calgary braces for its' first taste of autumn/winter weather. Cooling off and snow in the forecast. The gigs have (for the most part) been going so well I am deeply humbled...thanks to everyone who came out to share in the music. My gig at the Nickelodeon Folk Club here in town Saturday night was the stuff dreams are made of...John Reischman and the Jaybirds remind me of why I play music, and what it can be when you take away ego and flash, leaving only chops and commitment. Summer festivals are trickling in, as are the instructional camps, mostly from B.C. That's fine, the only summer I enjoyed this year was while touring out that way.

Home for most of the rest of the year, with gigs at the Blues Can, CBC Calgary's "Homestretch" show, Rusty Reed's House Of Blues (Edmonton) and my usual Tuesday solo spot at Mikey's Juke Joint. There will be more shows announced shortly, plus several more summer festivals/guitar camps, so keep on checking in !
