Two videos of my beautiful family singing!

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

On January 3rd (the only cold day we’ve had this winter so far!) the incomparable Mitch Fillion of came and filmed kith&kin singing two unrecorded songs: Cool of the Day, by the Appalachian folk singer Jean Ritchie, and Thousands or More, a folk song we learned from a version recorded by the Copper Family. Enjoy, and happy new year!

Feel Me Closer

Monday, October 24th, 2011

I’m five days from the end of my 3-week tour with Bruce Peninsula and Toronto is in sight! Be sure to greet us at our homecoming and CD release party at Lee’s Palace.

We had an amazing time at the Halifax Pop Explosion this weekend. I played my first solo set in many months, and it felt so good! I must say that HPX fans are something else – the Bust Stop theatre was positively buzzing by the time I went up at the fashionable hour of 8:30PM!! It’s not too often that you meet such a punctual audience, and one that actually listens no less! Halifax is the best place! I’m reminded a little more each time I go.

Toronto is now in my sights, and the first thing I’ve got to look forward to is a very special show at Hugh’s Room on October 29th. The show features Latent Recordings’ finest Cowboy Junkies, Finlayson/Maize (of Skydiggers fame), Cootes Leland, and myself. I’ll play the show as a duo with Matt Bailey on electric guitar and mandolin. I’m so excited to share the stage with musicians who have been such an inspiration and source of guidance to me in this crazy creative business! A few months ago, I covered the Skydiggers song “Feel You Closer” for Mitch Fillion’s website A tribute to my Latent family!
