I’m in Canada and about a week into a five-week trek across N America. It’s been a great first week, catching up with friends, being fortunate enough to get to go to Vancouver Canuck’s NHL hockey games, and oh yeh, playing gigs.
Have played shows in Victoria, Vancouver, Bowen Island and Courtenay so far and have already been on six ferries to do so. The weather in this lower part of British Columbia is so mild compared to what I left behind in the UK. Not what you expect from Canada in the winter, though that will change substantially when I fly to Prince George tomorrow. Debuted a new song called ‘Seahorse’ at Vancouver show. Highlight so far was getting spotted at the Canuck’s game..fame at last! Hockey is of course a national institution here and the atmosphere in the arenas is amazing and they put on such a great show with it all. Of course it doesn’t compare to watching the Cardiff Devils!
