Been a while since our last update and like most folky/trad bands we’re still winding down after a whirlwind summer. We had so much fun camping at Blue Skies, wading through the smoke in Yellowknife, getting up to our shins in rain back home in Newfoundland and shutting the bars down in beautiful Montana. Since then we’ve been taking a little time to ourselves. Matthew has been promoting and touring his (latest) tremendous solo record – Hearts & Heroes – that you can listen to here, Emilia’s back to school, Aaron’s nonstop playing in St. John’s with the likes of The Irish Descendants and Rum Ragged (and Aaron and Emilia’s album just went up on iTunes and is available here) and Rich is keeping the old fort safe working for Parks Canada at Cape Spear. As for me? Well I’m holding down another fort working on CBC Radio 2 and even getting to guest host Q for Jian Ghomeshi which was pretty cool.
Anyway, we’re looking forward to getting back at it – and we’re happy to announce we’re coming back to Toronto. On Nov 29 we’ll be playing the iconic Mod Club, opening up for Jim Cuddy Band for the Smiling Land foundation. This is a gig for a worthy cause, which you can read more about right here. The night before that we’re back at one of our favourite mainland haunts – The Sharbot Lake Inn. Shows at that wonderful venue tend to sell out super quickly so make sure to get your tickets soon.
We’re just finalizing details but keep your eyes to this page because in the next day or so we’ll be able to announce our big annual Christmas show in St. John’s. No rest for the weary!
