Well it's been a wild and beautiful ride this summer and I'm looking forward to finishing it off this weekend with Tambura Rasa at Quadrapalooza and the Sunshine Music Festival in Powell River. So many sweet moments this summer, starting with joining Quique Escamilla at the Vancouver Island MusicFest, where we got to share a workshop stage with Cyril Neville, Devon Allman, and Mokoomba. The next weekend we got to meet up with our buddies Jaron Freeman-Fox and the Opposites at the Harrison Festival of the Arts and then a whirlwind of Vancouver Folk Fest, followed by switching gears to play Island Music Festival with Locarno.
The Locarno tour continued with a stop in the Slocan Valley, where it felt like the 70's had never left. Swimming in the lake at midnight after our set was a real highlight! And then Hornby Festival, which was all too short of a visit to this remarkably beautiful island. Many thanks to all the lovely folks we met along the way. I'm already looking forward to next summer!
