An Anniversary and a Wedding — Fall 2019 Tour 

Dear Friends, 

Even as I write this post it still seems strange to me that this the 10th year of touring Germany. 

It all began back in 2009, when a wonderful man called Michael Behr, from Rotenburg, kindly said he liked my music and would I like to play some shows in Germany. Michael also passed on my Sacred Lines album to Gunther Pauler at Stockfisch Records, who kindly asked me to fly over to Northeim and record an album with them.

Spring 2018 - Tour Blog #1 - Sunday February 25th 

Louise has just dropped me off at Halifax Airport. We spent last night watching a high school production of Heathers, which our daughter assistant directed at the school where she works. We drove from Bridgetown to Rothesay, New Brunswick (where her school is), which is about a 530 km drive.
