This will necessarily be a quick note. Your humble correspondent has been on the road for nearly 6 weeks and have been having great fun and adventures. I'm sitting in the foyer of the Outer Space in Hamden, CT doing a quick update while waiting for sound check for the gig.
Last weekend was my first attendance at the North East Regional Folk Alliance Conference (NERFA) in Kerhonkson, NY and it was a great experience. Thanks to the NERFA board for all the organization that goes into putting on a conference of that size. I met a number of people during the weekend and as soon as I get home next Sunday, I'll be updating my e-mail list and a putting in a much longer blog entry with some stories from the road. I've been pretty good about keeping a journal so I can remember all the details of the Finger-Style and Fall Colours Tour.
The tour so far has included Montreal and Missisauga, Williamsport and Lock Haven PA, Hopkinton and Westborough, MA, Tiverton, RI, Kerhonson and Hyde Park, NY, Montpelier, VT and soon-to-be the afore-mentioned Hamden, CT. Still to come are Morrisville, VT, Framingham, MA, Lubec, ME and Breadalbane, PEI. Details of the remaining dates are on my website Performance page and I'd be honoured if you get a chance to come out to one of them.
Many thanks are due to a load of people we've met along the way. Aside from new fans, I have a load of new friends. One of the benefits of playing in new places is meeting new people and when those people make me their friend it's a additional plus.
Keep watching this space for more details. One of my favourite places is coming up - Lunenburg, NS. I won't be playing out but it's my own home and my own bed and my sweetie, Julia. And we've just added a date in December at Fundy Folk at the Evergreen Theatre in Margaretsville.
Hope to see you on the road and wish you safe travelling wherever the music takes you.
