  • Thank you to Momentum Productions

    Thank you to Momentum Productions

    A big thanks goes out to Steve and Astrid at Momentum Productions for putting on this gig at Parkside Art Gallery in 100 Mile House. I had a really nice time playing my songs, and was fortunate to be joined by Jack Keough on guitar and vocals, and Sean Keough on drums for a bunch of songs. 

    Momentum Productions was very professional to work with, and they even live-streamed the show all over the internet. I had to give a shout-out to "Dawg in Virginia"! That's cool!

  • Concert in church!

    Happy New Year to everybody!

    Here is part of a concert I did with the pianist, Paul Fraser, in the Parish of St. Mary Magdalene in Vancouver, BC. I play my original tunes, and Paul twinkles the ivory and puts out some classic 1920's tunes. Enjoy.

  • New music video for The Heart Of A Child In You (starring Kaylah Williams)

    Here's the newest music video from the Moonlight Poet Music Company! I wrote the song a few years ago and recorded it for The Green Lake Album in 2014. During this summer's (2016) cross Canada music tour from Vancouver to Newfoundland and back, I stopped in Bolton, Ontario to visit an old friend. It turned out to be a great visit, as it was his daughter Kaylah's birthday and we decided to film a music video for The Heart Of A Child In You with her as the "star".  Other locatations in this video are Gyeongju, South Korea, and Secret Beach on Koh Phangan, Thailand. I hope you'll enjoy and share it with others. Thanks for watching!

  • Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia

    Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia

    After making $90 busking on the boardwalk at Halifax Harbour, I went to Peggy's Cove and saw the Peggy's Point Lighthouse, an iconic Canadian image. Apparently it was constructed in 1868 and first lit in 1915. A long time ago! Lots of history here.

    It's also the best place on earth to be a seagull. I saw one chowing down on a fresh crab on the rocks. It was really cool to watch them glide along effortlessly on the strong wind coming off the ocean.

    And I bet both Stompin' Tom and Stan Rogers have both been here. 

  • Saskatoon radio!

    Saskatoon radio!

    Thanks to Jay Allen at CFCR 90.5FM Saskatoon Community Radio for having me in for an interview and to play a couple of songs before the gig at d'Lish by Tish Cafe. Saskatoon is such a nice town!

  • Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. J.R. Goodwin

    Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. J.R. Goodwin

    What a pleasure it was to meet and spend time with John Robert Goodwin in Quesnel, BC.

    J.R. has been on and off the road for decades, touring his own original country music. He gave me a few copies of his various albums, and I've been listening to them on the road across Canada. I'm blown away; he is a really great country style songwriter, and he has an amazing singing voice. He reminds me of all my other country music heroes like Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, George Jones, George Strait, etc.

    I've enjoyed hearing his road stories about his trips to Arizona, and someday I have to visit The Somewhere Bar, which he has written a song about. J.R. is a passionate guy and he lives for his music. He's won various awards through the years, and I see why. 

    Pleased to meet you J.R. and I'll see you again somewhere down the road.

  • First time to Newfoundland

    First time to Newfoundland

    Wow, Newfoundland! The place I've only heard about and never been to. Well, in a few weeks from now I'll be jumping onto the island to play a few gigs, and I'm definitely looking forward to this Poets & Pickers night at The Ferry Last Stop Cafe in Portugal Cove. I've heard many stories about Newfoundlanders and how they are such interesting folks, compared to the west coasters. Apparently I'm supposed to "kiss a cod"...or something like that, and chug a bit of "Newfie Screech". Guess I'll find out all about it when the time comes!
