What a fantastic start to the tour. The woman in the above photo with me is Elizabeth Taylor. The first time I ever took the train was in the summer of 2013 with Nova Scotia’s Jen Miller when we were the duo – When Coasts Collide. During one of our on board performances, this woman came into the room with a violin, sat down, and ROCKED those strings like crazy with us! We had such a great jam…
We hadn’t seen or heard from each other since…until Friday night when I got on the train headed east. I was tuning my guitar, looked around, and saw Elizabeth with violin in hand! She opened up her case, and we played together for the passengers awaiting their journey. So awesome!!
Then….on the train, I bumped into a few other people I had met in previous years! Super cool!! It’s really neat to re-connect with people this way.
Just made it into Toronto, and am heading out to New Brunswick tomorrow! East Coast….I be coming for ya, and then the legendary Festival of Small Halls in PEI!!!
