The Latest

Et Voila! We are off.

Well shoot! It seems in my usual fashion I left for tour in a hurry. It’s the packing and repacking that always gets me in the end, especially when the weather’s been like it has and I’ve got to pack Spring Coats AND Winter coats for when we get to those Alberta Mountains.

Corinna Rose and I spent the first week of the tour running around Toronto playing multiple showcases for Canadian Music Week. We met some terrifically talented musicians and had loads of fun playing as a trio with Simon Honeyman. It’s magic on that stage when those two are both up there with me.

We said goodbye to Simon yesterday and now we’ve got two days off in Toronto before we get on the train bound for Winnipeg. I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve been working on some new cover tunes for the train folk. They won’t know what hit’em!

All the tour dates are posted here, below the music player, and I sure hope you’ll come out to a show if we’re in your home town.

Miss Rose and I have also just confirmed that we’ll both be playing at the All Folk’d Up Festival this July in Montmartre, SK. This year’s lineup is looking pretty sweet! Can’t wait! We’re going to start booking a little Saskatchewan tour around then to make up for missing it on this trip.

Voila c’est tout! More updates soon.

Spring tour dates, new website tweaks, and warm weather

Hello lovelies,

It was a balmy 14 degrees celsius here in Halifax today. Nice that my last day in Nova Scotia before I hit the road again is such a lovely one.

I’m heading back to Montreal tomorrow for 10 days to do some mega-rehearsing for multiple projects and then Simon Honeyman, Corinna Rose and I are headed to Toronto to showcase at Canadian Music Week (woo!). It’s also the tour kick-off for Corinna and I (if only we could take Simon with us, but someone has to run the bookstore!).

I’ve got a super show in Montreal that I’m really looking forward to. On March 13th I’m playing the Upstairs Jazz Bar with Roxanne Potvin and Erin Costelo. If you’ve never seen either of them play you must come. They are both fantastic, highly accomplished song-writers. I mean it.

You may also have noticed I now have a little widget to the right here that plays my music and allows you to purchase it too if you are so inclined. Exciting! Take that myspace! Below that is another handy little widget where I’ll be posting all my tour and show dates henceforth. This was installed by my amazing web designer friend Sean Yeomans. He is great.

Happy March everyone!

Love,
Gab
