Have been home from N. America for around ten days now but will return on Friday for the Calgary Folk festival and ‘Woodsong’ in Washington State, USA. Stanfest in Nova Scotia was a great time. Played the mainstage on the Saturday night and a bunch of workshop stages through the weekend including one with Buffy St Marie.
It was also great to hook up with Martin Sexton again who was also playing and has just became a Dad again! So no sooner have I unpacked, than its time to get that big hockey bag out again and find some clean shirts and go again. I just didn’t want to be away for a two-month stretch besides there are festivals I’m playing in the UK as well. Crazy summer.
Nova Scotia was the one provence In Canada I had not been to before. It is really beautiful, though in a more rugged and desolate way to the West coast. Wonderful folk with big hearts and smiles to match. I look forward to returning.
