This is a little Public Service Announcement (because knowing is half the battle). I’m taking the rest of October off, musically. I have outstanding recording projects, jam sessions, commissions, co-writes, open mics, and gigs to prep for, but my body is insisting I take some time off.
Following the stellar Sinderella gig at the Moonshine last week – which included me, Deborah Linden, Adam Hill, as well as the wonderful talents of Devin Melanson, Garry Pomeroy, Chantelle Okel, Carlos Parra, Lee Vickery, Dave Falco, Dave Toms, Mike Langevin, Lorne Allan, John Marlatt, John Das Binky, Eric Distad and James MacKay – I came down hard with an illness that has attacked my throat and just knocked me out.
So, I’ve decided this forced hiatus will feed into a beneficial one. I have so many things to accomplish before the end of 2013 that I need to be 100% ready to tackle them all. I need the rest.
Some of the excitement over the next several weeks includes:
– 3 Copy Red Leader gigs with Devin
– 2 release shows at the Moonshine with friends (Marc Pettigrew, and Ron Baumber)
– folk gig at the Wee Folk Club just before the solstice
Not to mention all the off-the-book and behind-the-scenes projects on my plate. See? I really do need a break.
Great things are coming; great things have been. Thank you all for being a part of the journey this year. It’s been a whirlwind and I’m loving it. See you all again in a couple weeks..
