NEWS ON A NASTY NOVEMBER NIGHT
Here we are on a rainy day, but this month has felt almost like summer in NS!
November has been fun-filled so far. Music Nova Scotia Week was last weekend, and it was a blast! Had such a fun time rocking my Rodd Grand showcase with the boys, Jared Farney on drums and Peter Bull on bass, talk about adrenaline rush!
Now I’m gearing up for the next big November event: a songwriter’s circle with Joel Plaskett, Ian Sherwood, and Mo Kenney. This is a fundraiser for Invisible Children, an organization that helps child soldiers of the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda, defect and be rehabilitated into society. It’s an amazing cause, and I’m really excited to be part of organizing it with my friends Heather, Rachelle, and Reily. If you’re in Antigonish (or a drive away) on November 26th, please come support this important event and hear some great tunes. It starts at 8pm in the McKay Room on STFX Campus, $15 for students/unwaged, and $25 for adults. I really hope you can make it out!
Looking ahead to December, I’m very excited for the Canadian Folk Music Awards weekend. I’m nominated for Young Performer of the Year, alongside some really talented people, you can check out all then nominees here: http://folkawards.ca/awards-night/nominees/
It will be nice to get back to Toronto, I’ll be there a lot next month. Getting very excited to hit up the studio with John Angus MacDonald again just before Christmas, maybe Cone will stop by for a visit? You never know!
I hope all of you out in cyber-land are well. See you on the 26th!
