November 2009

It’s beautiful out – but cold! Having settled back in somewhat after the tour it feels good to be home. I’ve managed to attend two wonderful jams in the past couple of weeks where there was plenty of music being blown.

One of the jams was for Marg Tatam’s birthday (I’m pretty sure it was her 30th again :c) and we had a blast and played some good music together with Pete and Mary and the Bergman clan.

Marg and I will be heading to Old Crow next weekend to do a concert in the Community Hall there. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go to Old Crow, so there it is – I can’t wait to see it and meet everyone. I’m sure we’ll have some good photos from that gig.

There are photos up on Facebook from my last tour and you can view them by clicking here.

As soon as I got back I played with Manfred Jannsen and Jim Votour on their collaboration “Land of Gold” which has become a Yukon Anthem over the years. Manfred and Jim and I have been friends for a long time but have never really got to play together before so this was a special gig for me. The gig was the Olympic Ceremony in Whitehorse and we performed outdoors.

I was lucky enough to be a part of the first MusicYukon Songwriting Circle last week and there was a good group of enthusiastic songwriters. It’s happening again in a week (Monday November 30th). If you’re interested in that – call MusicYukon at 456-8742 and Steve can give you more information on that.

Well, that’s it for now!
