Had a lovely time last night doing a solo set in the picturesque town of Williamstown, just north of Cornwall, for their town social. It's a very cool step back in time for sure - met some lovely folks, and got to take my time and enjoy a scenic drive along the 1000 Islands and Long Sault Parkways. Thanks so much for having me!
It was a pretty terrific musical weekend. Tom Savage Music, Tony Silvestri, Richard Piche and Gary Barratt killed it this past Friday night at Joel Stone Park. Tom is the real deal - all original tunes, and it was great to have a night off and catch those guys! Saturday night at The Cove we helped June and Don celebrate their Golden Wedding anniversary on the patio. There were a couple of birthdays too - A lovely lovely busy night. Sunday, the weather was being its unpredictable self...but great time was had in the lounge nevertheless. THIS WEEK - a mini road trip.. FRIDAY night down Hwy 2 to Kingston at DOX Restaurant Bar & Patio , Holiday Inn Waterfront - 6 to 9pm. SATURDAY Night we head to Belleville to Capers (food is dynamite by the way!) 8-11pm, and SUNDAY we return to The Cove Country Inn to wrap up the weekend 12:30-3:30! Hope to see you along the way! In the meantime, Stay Cool and Keep Warm!

Looking forward to some good fun this week, starting Thursday night with the Bob Robertson Trio at Pan Chancho Bakery & Café for their Backyard BBQ series. Always a good night.
I'm especially excited for Friday night when Head over Heels and the Bob Robertson Trio will be joined by two of my favourite musicians - Danny Artuso will be sitting in and bringing some pedal steel and lead guitar magic, and my dear friend the wonderful Henry Heillig is coming up from Toronto to join in with his jazzy bass grooves. It's going to be a really fun musical mash-up at Joel Stone Park in the Town of Gananoque starting at 7:00pm.
Sunday, Miss V and I return to The Cove Country Inn for another afternoon of music, great food, and wonderful hospitality - as V calls it; her happy place. Hope to see you somewhere along the way. In the meantime - Stay Cool, and keep warm!
