CD Release Party and 2014

Well, it's been a long time since I wrote!  I meant to write the day after the CD Release Party, and somehow this was delayed til now.  I am a bit embarrassed about that, so embarrassed that I put it off and off til  now.  But better later than never.  

The CD Release Party at the Kaffe 1870 inWakefield was a huge success!!  Dave Draves and Pat Maher played with me.  It sounded great and I had such a good time.  The place sold out, and the doorman thought that ticket sales were close to a record for a Friday night.

I was so happy to see so many friends and family there.  Friends of mine were present - ski friends, running friends, cycling friends, work friends and music friends; friends of my son, Malcolm were present; and my dad and brother came to the show from Saskatoon, and they were thrilled.  Friends of Jamie Ferguson who opened up for me, were present.  Thanks Jamie for opening.  You sounded great.  And, thank-you everyone for coming.  It meant so much to me.

I have to say, there is nothing on earth like playing live with a band.  Nothing.  And, Dave and Pat are real pros - excellent musicians.  I love playing with them.  I am hoping for more gigs (and house concerts of course) in larger venues so that I can play again with Dave and Pat.

Thank-you everyone for your support in 2013. Thanks for buying CDs, hosting house concerts, and coming to my CD release party and generally cheering.

I look forward to 2014.  I finally, finally, got my music onto CD Baby so that you can download it.  It will also be on i-tunes in a matter of days.  CD Baby will be sending me some download cards that I will be bringing to shows for those people who no longer play physical CDs.

Happy 2014.  I hope to see you soon, and to play some music for you.
