three things…

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

February is coming to a close, and we're through the longest nights of the winter now, and I can feel some good spring things coming! 

In this post I want to tell you about three very different things I'm involved with right now.

The first is that I'm thrilled to be playing with my band this coming Friday March 1st at Hugh's Room, opening up for Andy Maize (of Skydiggers), in a special solo performance. Andy has for many years been a close musical friend and a great supporter of mine, so I am so excited to share the stage with him this week. The show will also feature a set of music by Michael Johnston, who plays keys in Andy's band. For tickets and info click here

The second piece of news is that I'll be calling a squaredance as part of the annual Trinity Bellwoods Ice-In, an awesome winter event that takes place in a small enclave on the western edge of Trinity Bellwoods Park in Toronto. The event is a beautiful celebration of art, music, ice, snow, fire, and community and will feature films projected onto ice, a fire-spinning show, hot drinks, ice art of many kinds, and of course, a squaredance called by me to warm everybody up! More info is here. And it's free! 

And my third piece! My good friend and collaborator Rene LaVice has just released his debut LP on RAM Records. I sing on two songs on the album, including the title track, Insidious. Rene makes drum'n'bass music, and I always enjoy how completely different it feels for me to sing over that kind of music. Listen to Insidious below! 

See you this weekend!

Andy Maize / Ivy Mairi next Friday

Friday, February 17th, 2012

I am so thrilled to be opening for my good friend and great supporter Andy Maize at Hugh’s Room next Friday February 24th. Andy will be playing a rare solo show, though he’ll still be joined by his Skydiggers bandmate Michael Johnston, as well as Derrick Brady, Glenn Milchem, and Devin Cuddy – who will also be playing a solo set! I’ll be backed by a full band that night (I’m just about to run off to rehearsal right now), so it’s sure to be a wicked show!! To reserve tickets, click here.

The following night I’ll be playing in Waterloo for the first time! Matt Bailey and I will play an intimate set at the Branches, and we’ll be joined by a bunch of other artists. For details, see my tour page.

At Hugh’s Room, Andy will be performing songs from his beautiful solo album, The History of Forgetting. Isn’t the cover amazing?! …………………………………

See you this weekend!
