Welcome to my digital home! It needs an over-haul with some new pics and a bit more razzmatazz. I am getting there.
It is now July 2021, wow. In late March of 2020 I started a live stream that came to be called ALL THE FRIDAYS and have had over a year of performing music out of my apartment. There are many of us who just jumped aboard the live stream and went with it, learning technology and the art of digital connection in a crazy crash course none of us signed up for. I have had a delightful time and wondered how long I would continue in the way I have been doing. I am now ready to wind things down and around.
I have a few more live streams left in July and will then take August off, read the tea leaves and come up with some strategies to continue living as I do. I shall return. In September, ALL THE FRIDAYS will reconvene but the name will lie- it will be one of the Fridays, a monthly show. It is time. It takes a strange amount of time to put on a show in your living space and the weekly-ness of it has been so much fun but it is time. I am looking forward to scaring up some IRL shows. I am very excited to keep one show a month. It just thrills me to play for friends, fans and family- in Toronto, Timmins, North Bay, Barrie, Montreal, Guelph, Hamilton, West Virginia! Florida! Mexico Germany! and, of course, Australia! Zowie, as absolutely nobody says.
The pandemic took much away and gave much. I am not up to making a list, which is kind of funny for someone who has a song named just that. Enumerating all the craziness of the last year and a half just gives it the power to define the way forward and that's not for me. I am interested in the 'blueberries after the bush fire' phase. New growth. We have all changed and one thing I will say I have learned in the last little while is that predicting where this is heading and how it will affect us is a time waster. So I am just going to take a little breath over the summer, get out and play wherever the music is being supported and enjoy blueberry season.
Thanks for stopping by!
