This Saturday (March 5th) I’m going to be playing in the house band for the Joni Mitchell Tribute at Hugh’s Room. I’ve played a bunch of tribute shows at Hugh’s – Gordon Lightfoot, John Prine, Tom Waits – but this one is extra special to me.
This is music that I know inside and out from years of listening, even though I’ve rarely attempted to actually play any of it.
The show will feature performances by Mia Sheard, Lori Cullen, Matthew Barber, Dave Matheson, DK Ibomeka, and Michelle Willis.

Dafydd Hughes and I play duets every Monday night at The Tranzac (7pm – 9pm). We go by the name “This Is Awesome.”
Our repertoire consists of my tunes, his tunes, our tunes, some Beach Boys, maybe some Hall & Oates.
Here’s a recording of Dafydd’s “Giant Things By The Side Of The Highway” from a recent Monday:
March has 4 Mondays. We’ll be there for all of them.
Opening for Peter Elkas (x2)
The first one is at The Dakota on March 8th.
The second show is in Guelph at Ebar on March 10th. (Sisters Euclid are also on the bill!)
Oh – and I’m going to be sending out some free downloads tomorrow in my monthly email. Are you signed up for that?
