Hi folks,
All is going well here. I played a wild show on the weekend. I went back to the ski hill where I spent much of my youth, Crabbe Mountain, outside of Fredericton.  So many great weekends I had snowboarding up there.  It was great to go back.  The only catch was that it was freezing cold and raining like crazy (tropical storm Danny was rocking the Maritimes).  Anyway, everyone stayed positive (kudos to those organizing the festival, Folly Fest). We ended up having a blast. We rocked it if I may say so. Thanks to everyone who danced and sang along in the pouring rain.  Very impressive commitment to the party and much appreciated! I’m back now in Halifax for a few days.  Heading out to Prince Edward Island on Thursday for a show at the Trailside cafe in Mount Stewart. Then, on the weekend I’m heading to Ontario to play at Shelter Valley Folk Festival.  I’m really looking forward to it.  I’ve heard so many great things about this festival for the past few years so it’ll be great to check it out and be part of it. I think that’s it for now.  Once again, the photo I’m going to post is not from my most recent outing.  It’s from the gig I did at the Lieutenant Governor’s place in Fredericton on New Brunswick day.  It was taken by Rob Blanchard (thanks Rob) and he sent it to me last week.  I thought it was pretty cool so I thought I’d share it with you. Thanks for the visit.
talk soon,
David
