« A Visit to Manitoulin Island Onward to Manitoulin Island »

Summer Music August 12th, 2011

I’ve just returned home from a trip to the Yukon, where, among other things, I found myself entertaining a group of Australian river-rafters at Antoinette’s Restaurant in Whitehorse.  These Aussie “raftafarians” had just returned from a 12-day trip down the Tatshenshini River.  They were up for some boisterous musical fun, so we sang with gusto until the wee hours.  A few days later, after a spectacular drive through the coastal mountains and a 15-hour ferry ride down the Inside Passage from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy (where we saw Orcas), I found myself on the banks of Vancouver Island’s Cowichan River where, between dips in the river pools, I jammed with my good friend Ric Munro, the former leader of reggae bands Azad and the Cultivators.  Too much fun!  On September 17th I’ll be opening for Pat Harris’s band The Bonespurs at the Reid Lake Fall Fair, where I’ll have a chance to try out some of my new songs (more details to come)…
