I will be playing the ” Double Tour Event ” with the Bombadils, a joyful , 4 piece folk ensemble out of Montreal , QC, that unite an eclectic variety of influences to present a unique , modern interpretation of traditional music.
Easter saw/sees me spending quality time with my family in Vancouver. What a BEAUTIFUL time to visit this province! Rehearsing is just a joy as I look out of my wee apartment window onto the small , as of yet green garden. Perhaps a new song will emerge this week .
Only one more week here and then off for the whole month of May to the Eastern Canada leg of my tour…starting with London, Ontario. I can see why people call it the ‘gift’ of music.
My heart is full. And so was the room…ha ha ! What an incredible evening we all had last night. Sold out house, tight band, great sound again from my daughter, Emily Loewen, and the most supportive, wonderful audience. I still can’t believe that I am even living this incredible dream of creating music …and that people are finding some joy in it all. The Holy Spirit moves in amazing ways and I am so honoured to share this gift . I think everyone had a good time . I KNOW I did. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend and to those who couldn’t…you were missed!
O.K. this is SO odd but you would have to GUESS how to find the ticket link . There is obviously a glitch in the website but here is how it works every time :
Click on the April 5th date and the address should appear for the show. Then scroll your cursor down a couple of lines and double tap/click the blank space underneath the address and you will go straight to the ticket link for YEGlive.
Man! It is SO much fun to have a job like this. I feel so blessed to be able to share my music with others and to be able to play with such talented friends and family members. Had a fun rehearsal last night….getting close now to my home town concert.
Tickets are flying away for this exciting event in my hometown . The show will be filled with many of the new songs from Hope Is , at least one from my first album, Waiting, and even a brand new, unrecorded song.
The Edmonton band is made up of 5 of the best local talents you could hope to hear ( surprises for you) as well as many of my own incredibly talented family members : my husband ( funny and fun opening act) and electric bass/vocals, my sisters, Paula and Pamela ( all the way from Ontario) on harmony vocals, my brother in law , Albert – alternating on piano and djembé drums, his daughter, Natanielle, will arrive from Winnipeg to play a sultry cello . And our own daughter, Emily , will be making us all sound good!
It is such an honour to share my music with you. But , honestly, I don’t really view it as ‘my’ music. ( Thank you to The Holy Spirit who gives me an occasional nudge or two as I strive to create uplifting , Spirit filled, inspirational music.)
