Phenomenal Shows, Workshops, and Walks

It has been an incredible week in the Okanagan!  I have thanks and shout outs for many:

-To all the folks at the Artists for Creative Alliance for having me last Wednesday for a beautifully intimate show.  All the open mic performers were incredible!

-To Silver Star for having me play at The Saloon, and to Jim for making the drive :).

-To Tiger Moon for a wild western show on Friday!  Listen to their wonderful music and beautiful harmonies.

-To Darren Beattie, Jenny Brook, and Matt Langill coming down from Vancouver to come play with me full band for a huge Fernando’s show.

-To all my workshop participants who seriously rocked it and gave it your all.

-To the Songwriter’s Stewdio for having me as a feature and producer last night!

-To my family and new friends that joined me on walks these last few days.  Below are a couple of cool moment pictures from these walks.

You all rock!  I am over the moon with excitement from this week.  Can’t wait to come back!!
