Hey! I just wanted to send out an enormous thank you to everyone involved with the Hockey Day celebrations in PEI this weekend. It was truly an honour for me to be asked to perform, write a hockey related song and experience such a lovely weekend with some of the greatest talent this world has to offer. I met a lot of people this weekend and was so thrilled to be sharing the stage with Dave Bidini, Stephen Stanley ( thanks for the guitar!), Paul Linklater, Doug Friesen, Don Kerr, Chris Murphy, Lennie Gallant, Liam Corcoran, Kinley Dowling and of course the magnificent Sarah Harmer. I remember seeing Sarah years ago at The Birdland Cabaret in Halifax with her band Weeping Tile. I became and instant fan and I am pretty sure I can recite every word from her albums :) It is not very often that I am moved to tears by a performance, but she gets me everytime! What a golden voice and a lovely lady.
Thanks so much to Dave Bidini for asking me to be a part of this event, the CBC, Scotiabank and everyone involved that made it happen. Bidini Band did an excellent job and really brought it home with their after party performance at Baba’s Lounge. Thanks to everyone who celebrated until the wee hours of the morning. There was also a gentleman serving up some oysters and I am now officially hooked. PEI, you know how to throw a party! I’ll be seeing you again very soon on February 23rd at my beloved Hunter’s Ale House.
Much love to everyone I met this past weekend. Hopefully our paths will cross again sometime soon.
P.S. My song “The Old Rink Light” will be posted for you all to hear and share :) It’s just a demo for now, but I received some great feedback so a proper studio recording will definitely be in the works.
Love and Rock,
