Just a quick note to say that I’ll be playing three locals shows in the next week. They’ll all be intimate acoustic concerts featuring brand new music and three amazing iterations of my quartet, two of them with one of my very favourite musicians in the world, Ron Miles. Check tour dates for details and tickets.
Feeling refreshed after a fews weeks off the road. The late-summer harvest has had me cooking up a storm and I’ve otherwise been spending time with my three-year-old daughter and sitting on the porch learning to play the tenor guitar. Off to Toronto now to play a grand show at the Music Gallery on Friday with Rob Mosher (woodwinds), Kevin Turcotte (trumpet), Andrew Downing (cello), Joe Phillips (bass), Nick Fraser (drums), Aline Homzy (violin), Jessica Deutsch (violin), Kathleen Kajioka (viola) and special guest Miranda Mullholland (voice) from the Great Lake Swimmers. Then over to the Guelph Jazz Festival on Saturday for a quintet set plus an intimate duo performance with Joe Phillips (bass) at 2am as part the festival’s Nuit Blanche program.
Earlier this week, we stopped in at WNYC in New York to play three songs on Soundcheck. Click here to listen to or download an intimate performance of two songs from the new album, The Other Side of the Air, and a spontaneous rendition of Sister, a tune that is so-much-like-bluegrass-you-won’t-believe-it-isn’t from my first solo album, The Utmost. The latter features the amazing Rob Mosher on oboe, english horn and soprano saxophone.
