The big bday show at the Lost Church was a huge hit. Thanks to everyone who came out - Mark Growden, surprise guest Jessie Antonick (Pony Hunt), and I got to play to a sold out crowd and woo all y'all with some lovely americana music. Personally it was a present to me to just watch folks I love perform - but then your response to my songs - aww it was a gift to my heart folks - for real. Since then (omg was it really just over a week ago?!?!) I've been getting myself together for the big tour back up to Canada. I'll be supporting Carolyn Mark at Wheelie's in Victoria for her CD release show, plus getting to play some music round the campfire up near Shawnigan Lake and of course and always at Logan's Hootenanny. Extra special news is that I'll be playing at Logans ON my actual bday - so if you're around come say a howdy and enjoy some tunes.
Later this fall (starting in October) my band Vagabondage will be bringing our balkan / Waits influenced stompy accordion music to Thrillpeddlers annual SHOCKTOBER FEST - so if you ever wanted to see showtunes WITH accordion - don't miss it!
Also stay tuned for info on a Kickstarter for the Secret Emchy Society's FIRST ACTUAL ALBUM - eight of ten songs are done, and the other five just need some more polish - so very very soon this is going to be rolling. WOO! Until then - you can always buy the demos album over at emchy.bandcamp.com or pick up tunes from the other bands I'm in at the sites below:
