I'm back in Whitehorse after a fantastic tour of BC, Saskatchewan, Manitoba & Ontario with Grant Simpson, releasing our new CD "Beneath the Yukon Moon". The tour started out in BC with a gig on Thetis Island. We had such a warm welcoming from the folks on Thetis - what a thriving community of like-minded people! We stayed with friends in a house right on the ocean with a view out to many small islands.
We played our first 'condo concert' (like a house concert, but in a condo) hosted by Grant's brother & sister-in-law, as well as a show on Gabriola Island. It was neat to spend some time on Gabriola and meet the arts community there. Here are some photos from a bike trip we did around the island with a stop to hike along the ocean....
Here are some shots from hiking in Riding Mountain National Park (north of Brandon on our day off), a wildlife preserve north of Winnipeg, and a sunflower at Ft. Garry historical site.
Here is a shot from our show in Kemptville with my pal Derek up helping out with actions for my Sled Dog Song!
Now we're back in Whitehorse, basking in the balmy zero degree weather, getting ready for minus 30 this weekend..... good ol' climate change keepin' us on our toes.
We've got our CD release concert here January 21st and then..... fantastic adventures lurking around every corner!
