After the craziness of the summer it was nice to have a little bit of time to straighten everything else out before we hit the road again playing jams. We’re pumped to return to the Roots, Rants, and Roars food festival in Elliston with some of our best pals (Fortunate Ones, The Once, Amelia Curran…who frankly could use the number one in her name). It’s a food festival where some of the top chefs in the country and our province come together to show their stuff, and we’re excited to be there to play music and aid in the consumption of said food. It’s already sold out, which is a bummer, but there’s always next year!
Then we’re off to Ontario for a run of dates in some of our favourite rooms. The first is a big night for Newfoundlanders (specifically Memorial graduates) abroad in Toronto – the Toronto Affinity Celebration. Then we’re off to a new venue for us, the Stonecroft Folk Club. We’ve never played it but some of our friends have told us it’s one of the best venues in Canada for listening to folk music. Then to Sharbot Lake, which is the undiscovered crown jewel of venues in this country – a venue run by Newfoundlanders in the middle of Ontario – sure whaddya want? Jam on it? Then we’re off to the grand church of folk music in Ontario, Hugh’s Room, for what will be a fun night in the big smoke. We’re excited to have Devin Cuddy (yes, of those Cuddy’s) opening for us at Hugh’s.
Then we make our first major inroad into the US at the Richmond Folk Festival in Virginia. We’re spreading the doctrine, folks! Try and stop us!
Then lots more going on. Aaron and Emilia are getting ready to release their debut side project, Matthew is getting ready to release his sophomore effort and Rich is working hard crunching the numbers for all of it. I’m flat out at CBC doing the morning show and Deep Roots…but expect something very special for the new year, including our first ever European tour.
And new music! Where does it stop? Here!
