THANK-YOU! for coming to the shows – more coming up in July

I wanted to write a BIG heartfelt thanks from me to you!—to everyone who checked out a show over the last 3 months while I toured across Canada & into the USA. Thanks to everyone who ordered a CD, bought some music on iTunes or supported what I do in any way: it means a LOT. My recent shows across the maritimes, into Indianapolis Indiana (photo), and then Alberta and Saskatchewan in Canada have been great and audiences have been so appreciative. I feel so revved up about touring this new album of mine. After a few private shows in Toronto over the next few weeks, I’ll head out to the West Coast mid-July. Check the calendar on this site to see if I’ll be performing close to you (Vancouver, Abbotsford, Port Alberni, Parksville, Victoria). cheers! Jeffery

Nova Scotia, New Brunswick & PEI

I’m looking forward to the upcoming shows in Nova Scotia, PEI and New Brunswick. Last time I was on the east coast, when I wasn’t making music I was eating seafood – so. much. seafood. Glorious stuff! I’m looking forward to a repeat of that. If you’re in the maritimes I hope to see you at a show: June 5-Antigonish NS (with Jenny MacDonald), June 6-Hunter River PEI (with Jenny MacDonald & Brian Dunn), June 7-Fredericton NB, June 10-Halifax NS (with Jenny MacDonald). Details and ticketing are on the UPCOMING SHOWS PAGE of this site. I took the attached photo when on tour in Ottawa last week (did a show there with Glenn Nuotio). I stumbled upon 1000 people doing yoga on parliament hill – pretty cool!!
