Extroverted introversion. That's Dawn Pritchard and her music.  A Metis Wakefield transplanted from Saskatoon, Dawn released her second album, "Catch Me if You Can" November 2016.  Introspective lyrics, intuitive music and melody.  Ambient, beautiful, yet groovy.  Solid guitar playing.  Dawn animates emotions by putting them to music.  Influences of Regina Spektor and Suzanne Vega.  Bicycles, PTSD, a lament from the perspective of a caribou and a bilingual story about a sweater are topics of Dawn's songs you will hear and remember.

Dawn is available to play events, festivals, house concerts and parties either with a full band, solo or as a duo.  Also, please feel free to contact her if you need a guitar player or backup vocalist.  She is also available to play guitar or sing backups with others.  You can contact Dawn here, through this website for bookings. 

One more day... 

I am so excited for the show tomorrow!  I feel like a kid waiting for Santa on the night before Christmas. 

Dave, Pat and I had our last rehearsal last night.  It has all come together, and I am pretty happy about how we sound .  Those two worked hard to learn the longs: Pat had to learn them from scratch, and Dave had to condense all of the ambient sounds we did on the recording into something we could do live.  I think we succeeded.

Tom Werbo of the Lowdown wrote a great note in our local paper.  Thanks Tom!  

Mark M. of the Kaffe 1870 is getting ready to do sound.

Jamie Ferguson is practicing for his opening set.

And, last Friday, Anne-Marie Brugger of CHUO 89.1 fm hosted me on her show "Hop the Fence".  She played "Not Even Flowers" and "Nadia's Song" and we had a great chat.  You can check out past episodes here: http://www.hopthefence.ca/past-episodes.html

I really appreciate all the support that people are offering.  What a great community!

Thank-you, and see you tomorrow!

Hop the Fence on CHUO fm today 5:30 

Anne-Marie Brugger, host of Hop the Fence of CHUO fm has asked me to be on her show to chat about the new CD "All Tied Up".  Hop the Fence features "great Canadian indepenedent bands".  Needless to say, I am both excited and a wee bit nervous.  The show airs from 5 til 6 today, and I go on at 5:30.  Anne-Marie's husband Marcel faciliated this, and I am pretty thankful for this great opportunity.  (The cycling world is small and great!)

Tune in to Hop the Fence today!

Newsletter, apology and Hampsey's House Party 

Well, I finally drafted a newsletter.  I sent it out to the people who had signed their names to my house concert book and added a few friends.  However, I neglected to mention the fine musicians who played on the album. They are Andree  Prefontaine on cello, Jill Zmud on vocals, John McAlpine on harmonica, David Draves on keyboards, guitars and bass, and Malcolm Pritchard who is the voice on voices.  

I also thanked people who have hosted me at their house concerts and for some reason, I missed thanking Robbie O who has supported my music all along. Thanks Robbie O, and please accept my apologies for failing to mention you at the outset.

Finally, our songwriting group played at Hampsey's House Party last night. Once again, thank-you Paul Hampsey, Ian Tamblyn for organizing us and teaching us to write better songs, and the Kaffe 1870 in Wakefield.  As for me, I played 3 news songs: Lament of the Caribou, Living Room, and Shell Shocked. People seemed to like Shell Shocked quite a bit, even though it is about war.  Some people were hoping it was on the album that will be released on December 6, but it is much too new.  I plan to record it on the next album though.

Thanks everyone.
