We’re excited to be playing at The Horseshoe Tavern this coming Wednesday night, August 9th. Opening the show is our good buddy Graham Nicholas at 9pm and closing the night are Big Tobacco & The Pickers celebrating their 10th anniversary round 11. We’ll be handling the middle set at 10pm. Hope to see you out! Only 10 buckeroos at the door.
A cool new lyric video has been put together for the tune “Forged Check”, I thought it was some fitting footage to go along with the words and feel. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWUaXLhfJqU

That was a fun string of shows that took from Eastern Ontario to Prince Edward Island. Thanks to everyone who came out. Please keep checking the TOUR page for what’s on the way, there’s a bunch already posted.
Didn’t get a chance to post it but I had a great conversation with Ken Kelley to promote my Moncton show last Tuesday. Ken also just received an Atlantic Journalism Award, congrats!

Lastly, it’s been nice hearing about all the CBC radioplay some of the new songs are getting and the album continues to climb different College radio charts including Halifax, where it’s sitting in the Top 5. I’ve always been hanging around in the “obscure” section, so it’s nice seeing a bit of attention being made, means a lot.
Here’s a shot by Craig Northey (Odds) taken at the sold out Halifax show Friday.
