CD Release Concert!!!
Our official CD launch will be held in downtown Brampton. Beaux-Arts is a very appropriate place for our concert, as we hosted many “Open Mic Paint Nights” there over the past year or two.
The concert will be part of a two week “SesquiART” exhibition that includes the artwork that was created during the filming of our video for “Hey Canada!” View the video on YouTube…
We’ll be doing two full sets from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. featuring many songs from the CD, as well as several other Canadian originals and covers. Jamie Reilly will also be along to play a couple of his wonderful songs and join us on a bunch of ours.

Canterbury Folk Festival
This may well be the musical highlight of a very busy summer for us. The Canterbury Folk Festival is one of my very favourite folk festivals, a free event with fantastic community spirit. I’ve played there many times with Les as part of Brown Ale.
This year, they are celebrating Canada’s Sesquicentennial by bringing in artists to represent each of Canada’s 10 provinces. Keith and I are extremely honoured to be representing our native province of New Brunswick, as part of an amazing line-up that includes Valdy, Ian Thomas, James Keelaghan, Lennie Gallant, The Once, Pierre Schryer and many others.
We’ll be playing the Friday night mainstage (check out their famous “Swine and Wine” pig roast!) at 5:30 p.m., then are back playing 3 workshops throughout the day on Saturday.
All the festival details, including a full schedule, line-up and directions can be found at www.canterburyfolkfestival.on.ca/index.html.
