As summer starts to wrap, I’ll send out a huge thank you to the festivals, people and places that have hosted me over the sunny season: Home County Folk Fest, Regina Folk Fest, Sunshine Coast Festival of the Written Arts, and the Refuge Cove Gallery. It’s definitely been a summer to remember. This weekend I’m bound for the annual Peak Performance Boot Camp in Princeton BC where I get to work with 20 of the best bands in BC for career development.
The fall season is shaping up to be a busy one as well, as I have the honour of once again co-hosting both the Polaris Music Prize Gala in Toronto, and the Western Canadian Music Awards, this time in awesome Whitehorse, Yukon. I’ll also be making a return to Word on the Street Vancouver, and am very excited to be announcing a book tour of the Kootenay region of southeast BC, where I’ll be making stops in Nelson, Fernie, Invermere, Cranbrook, Rossland, and possibly other towns. In November, I hope to be back in the prairies.
You can see all of my upcoming dates here.
For all those wondering what the hell is going on with me and CBC, I’ve spent the summer doing a lot of work for CBC Radio 1, both guest hosting the BC afternoon show All Points West, and doing a weekly nationally syndicated column called Cross Country Cottage. As of Tuesday September 6, I’m excited to be back in the hosting chair at CBC Radio 3 for my daily live show and weekly podcast.
