Happy Winter and Music Biz Tune-Up!

Happy 2017! We have been busy at home staying cozy and  working on our music space.  Yesterday, we went to the first of the Georgian Bay Folk Society’s workshop series on being a musician in the music business. There will be workshops held throughout the year on everything from performing to booking a tour, culminating in a conference in October. What a wealth of knowledge. James Keelaghan, Artistic director is really trying to develop this community as a place where musicians can live. We recommend that any musician interested, whether you are just into the open mics or pursuing gigs should take part!

Summer Solstice Mini-Tour

It has been a crazy spring! We have had to work a bit more at our “day jobs” lately, but it has worked out, because we became homeowners! Over the summer we are going to finally have a proper practice space. Stay tuned to see how our space transforms! We have also been playing with our other side project, the Great Canadian Swampstompers. Live at the last SOUNDS Owen Sound this June:
