To all of the fans and folks in Port Alberni – we’ll be performing another show there on May 22nd at Char’s Landing.
I will be joined on this tour by Ken Cade (electric violin) and Ross Fairbairn (bass).
We hope to see many of you out for this one!
The only way to celebrate your birthday is to be surrounded by friends and family and this is what happened last Friday, May 10 at The Cottage Bistro. It was an awesome night of entertaining folk music with some of the best singer/songwriters in Vancouver joining me on stage – Chris Ronald, Harriet Frost, Ev Yngveson, Ross Fairbairn, Jason Lowe and many more joining in with a stellar “house band” made up of Ken Cade, Rob Boshaw, and Marke Andrews. We raised over $200 for the BC Crisis Center that evening thanks to the many friends and fans that contributed. Thanks also to Eugene, the owner of the Cottage Bistro, for his support, staffing and great food!
I’ve got a big band playing with me tomorrow night at The Heritage Grill in New Westminister.
Rob Boshaw – Lead Guitar
Ken Cade – Electric Violin
Pat Covernton – Keyboards
Ross Fairbairn – Bass
Marke Andrews – Drums
Come out and join us as return to this great venue….No Cover
Hello my dear Joyfest friends,
Yes, the rumors are true! Due to an increasing amount of demand and interest by so many, Joy Fest 2013 will be happening this summer! We had such a huge success two years ago, we were frankly afraid that we couldn’t pull it off again. Yet, here we are facing our fears and going for it!
So we will be accepting email submissions for the over twenty five openings that we have available for this event. Merely send an email to email@example.com with an attached EPK or Bio/photo/link to your music website for us at Soaring Eagle Music to peruse. Make sure you have JOY FEST 2013 as your Subject title. The submission deadline is May 30, 2013.
We will consider all submissions but, unfortunately, because of the number of limited openings, not all submissions will be accepted. I hope you understand. We have such a deep and rich community of musical talent here in Vancouver, it is impossible to showcase everyone that applies.
I will be sending out more information as the weeks build towards this great event.
Much peace and, of course, joy to you all,
Soaring Eagle Music
Last fall, I was approached by my good friend and novelist, Mark Boyter, who suggested a collaboration of my music and his newest novel, Crescent Moon Over Laos. He gave me the manuscript to read and a provided an old fashioned slide presentation which both together blew me away. From that inspiration, I wrote the “sound-scape song” with the same title.
I have been recording it with violinist/producer, Ken Cade, and it will be out on the novel’s website very soon.
This opportunity has given me a totally different change in direction of my song and music writing. I’m excited with the possibilities that abound from this collaboration. Stay tuned!
Looking forward to beginning a new tour in February 2013 with the wonderfully talented singer/songwriter, Sue Turner. As well as performing her own outstanding songs, Sue brings a magical and meaningful essence of harmony and lightness to my songs with her uplifting vocals and excellent keyboard and guitar styles.
