Hi folks,
It appears that summer is finally here on the east coast.  It has been a sweet week.  Lots of sun and chilling going on.  I was in Fredericton for the long weekend.  It was great.  Didn’t do much beyond relax on the banks of the Saint John river and chip away at the new tunes.  On New Brunswick Day, which was Monday, I got to play for a great crowd at the Lieutenant Governor’s backyard party.  He opens the backyard for people to check out tunes, drink lemonade and eat birthday cake.  Good times.  The highlight was getting to sing "When It Comes My Turn" in French.  The song was translated by his Honour, Hermenegilde Chiasson, who is a celebrated Acadian poet and New Brunswick’s current Lieutenant Governor.  It was an honour and it was really fun to sing.  I unfortunately didn’t have a camera there to capture the event so I can’t include a photo.  But maybe I’ll attach a photo of me playing tunes at my main man, Old Man Luedecke’s place last month.
Thanks for the visit.
Talk to you soon,
David
