Dear Friends, we hope you are safe and well in these uncertain times. I just did my first every digital concert! The rain stopped and the sun came out and our first live digital Family Concert went dulcimerrily down the stream May 17 and you can watch it here , it's 1 hour 1 minute long!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdQUF-rfUMQ&t=113s 

For big folks, Nico and I did a 90 minute ROOTS & GROORVES live stream from the Duncan Showroom in July, see that for free here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kIgratVwGs Take care, stay home and be safe and well.

Nico and I have postponed all live shows until fall 2021 due to virus risk and are home self quarantining and festivals are rescheduled for nextsummer. We'll post other dates as we confirm them. 

Meanwhile here's a video of Nico and me with PIED PUMKIN in the finale of the concert celebrating my induction into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame last July! An old song still rings true after 45 years, PEOPLE I LOVE YOU!   https://youtu.be/KNNAhwFQtx8 

Here's a link to my musical acceptance speech THE PROMISE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwrWjSFhEjY and an excerpt from TRAVELLIN AINT SO BAD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rN7vLHtHAQY.  

Remember ANGELS DO, the song and video from 1995 with my 5 year old granddaughter Mielle? Well now she is 29 and here we are doing the song together at SpiritBar in Nelson, during our ROOTS & GROOVES tour of the Kootenays in October.
