Although being on tour is never a holiday, there was definitely something vacation-y about our time in BC. If you can imagine, we fit all sorts of things in between our shows including climbing Mt Erskine on Salt Spring Island, sailboating on Pender Island, swimming several at lakes throughout the province and in the ocean, and it was a berry extravaganza with blackberries, raspberries, blueberries and thimble berry bushes following us everywhere, offering us their fruit as a snack.
But there was much music to be played, and especially Campbell Bay Music Festival was fabulous, full of other musicians we know and love, great food and great vibes. There are fewer photos than usual from this tour, but here’s a couple:

So, when we got back from the west, we got to do a fun outdoor gig in Toronto’s historic Distillery District. The folks at Snap’d Toronto took a few pics. It was a super windy day, so i’m surprised that they even captured a single shot without my face eclipsed by hair!
So, for Toronto folks who want to know when to catch us live in action next, we will be doing our next of the quarter-annual residency gigs at Castro’s Lounge in the Beaches next Wednesday, July 27th. Show starts 8:30pm and runs ’til 11, and the cover charge is simply a donation into the ‘generosity jug’. (Ha! You like that name? Works for me. ) After that, there will be a rare solo set at a house concert in Toronto alongside local muso (Australian term for musician!) Mike Evin. Click here for more info.
Thanks for reading, loves. Stay hydrated, and hope to see you very soon!
