Riding the Rails

We’re home from Halifax!

My Bruce Peninsula bandmate Matt Cully (aka EONS) and I went out to the East Coast this past week to play in Halifax. Our show at the King’s College Library was a total trip – a beautiful old building full of amazing things – they were even giving away free books! – and amongst the stacks there was a concert going on! Myself and EONS played with one of our favourite Haligonian bands Nick Everett and Everybody. This was the first time we’d seen Nick with his new band, and they were jaw-drop amazing.

Matt and I took the train to Halifax, but it was a slightly unusual journey because we also performed while we were on it! We were lucky enough to get accepted by a VIA Rail program that provides musicians with free long-haul travel in exchange for performances in the lounge car of the train! We played four times during our two trips, and there was even a singalong to I Can’t Help Falling In Love with You by Elvis. Movie-watching, book-reading, and window-gazing in our sleeper cabin, and breakfast in the dining car filled up the rest of our journey.
