Festival season begins…

It’s only March, but for folk singers, that means the summertime is starting to take shape.

My festival season officially kicked off with a mention in the Owen Sound Sun Times yesterday, and a post from Sumerfolk Artistic Director, James Keelaghan announcing an amazing lineup.

What a lucky guy I am to find myself among that stellar group.

Back in the early nineties, when I was attending folk festivals as a volunteer, a gate-crasher, a busker and a wannabe songwriter, Keelaghan was one of those musicianss I really looked up to. A guy who was actually DOING what I dreamed of: writing great songs, playing for audiences who appreciated his work, and working the ‘one warm line’ of this country’s vast, inspiring landscape.

It’s an incredible thing, two decades down the trail, to be invited by someone of James’ stature to join the lineup of one of my favourite events again this year.

Thanks, Summerfolk. Here’s to a great festival, and a great festival season!

Watch this space for more announcements soon.
