I made this recording at Easter time. It was originally attributed to African slaves who were sold in America and was first published in 1899.
I was so happy to be able to contribute some guitar and lap steel to the very talented Michael Hart‘s new album which will be released very soon. It is a long awaited release and is sounding so special. I have also been getting back into the pedal steel which is always good for my brain! I am experimenting with a few ideas with that in my home studio which I am happy to say is now up and running again after a flood last year. 2020 has already provided quite a few live shows locally and some new ones are being added to the site as they are being confirmed. I am excited to have a few dates in the spring with my Son Celtic harpist Aaron Ord. You can check the dates calendar for the details. Thanks for stopping by. See you at a live show I hope. Feel free to leave a comment here too.
So glad to be on the road again touring B.C. with the annual Christmas Tales tour with my friends Russ Rosen and Justyn Rees. This year we are joined by multi-instrumentalist and JUNO winner Shari Ulrich. We have got two dates under our belts so far (and two turkey dinners!) The music is sounding so beautiful with our vocal harmonies being something we have tried to feature this year. Justyn’s story telling is as humourous as ever and is also very meaningful.
For tickets and information you can surf to http://www.christmastales.ca we would love to see you at a show. Please come and say hi.
I am thrilled to announce that I will be touring BC, Canada this December with the fabulous Christmas Tales Show. The show features the music of Russ Rosen and the amazing story telling of Justyn Rees. It’s a journey back to the first Christmas story told with humour and in a modern idiom. Joining me in the band will also be the multi talented Stephen Toon. The dates are listed on my site under the calendar tab. If you can come we would love to see you there.
Had the pleasure of performing with Blues Harmonica Player Sherman Doucette this past week in Osoyoos BC. The sold-out gig at Elks Hall Blues series was described as one of the best shows of the season by the Osoyoos Times.
