The Guitar Summit

This Saturday, March 7th 2015, I’ll be part of something called the “Guitar Summit,” which takes place at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts. It’s part of Soulpepper’s Cabaret series.

Ted Quinlan, Don Ross, Nick Tateishi and I will each perform some solo guitar pieces as well as some duets/collaborations. I don’t do these kinds of shows very often, so I’m just hoping I can keep up with these super skilled guitar players! 

Tickets are $20-$25, and you can purchase them HERE.

Tour Highlights – January 2015

It’s always nice to have a few recommendations from the locals when you’re visiting a city for a brief moment. My favourite day on tour was the morning I spent in Pittsburgh. Thanks to my friends Scott and Anne, I had a list of places to check out. Everything I love in one area: coffee, comics and Polish food.

The first day of the tour was pretty great, too. We played in my hometown, St. Catharines, ON. My dad made us a special pizza and brought it to us during soundcheck.

Other highlights from the tour:

-Playing Space Invaders in Louisville
-Hattie B’s in Nashville
-using my fitbit and reaching my 3 fitness goals every day
-eating a filet o’fish on the drive to Nashville
-Solo walk in Houston to coffee place in the hot sun
-watching HBO and drinking wine in bed in Topeka, Kansas – night off
-making a charcuterie board in the van
-eating room service and watching A Few Good Men – Milwaukee

…so, yeah, most of the highlights are food related. But that’s the stuff that separates the days. The shows are sort of one big blur!
