We are feeling well chuffed after getting booked to play the Mariposa Folk Festival!!! It’s coming up soon – July 8th to the 10th in Orillia, Ontario!!

Thanks to Blair Packham for pinch hitting as a Shiner when we played at the showcase up in Orillia in April!  So proud of my band mates! And thanks to Mehreen Shahid of the Orillia Packet and Times, who shared some of the shots she took of us during the showcase.

Amazing feeling to go from attendee and audience to performer – saw many amazing shows at Mariposa back in the day: Kate and Anna McGarrigle with their then teen kids, Rufus and Martha, singing civil war tunes; Jackson Browne headlining in Barrie’s Molson Park, and John Prine, Lucinda Williams and the now late (great) Guy Clark down on the Island!

Just got the schedule and we will be playing all three days at the Fest, from Friday afternoon at the Downtown Orillia stage to Saturday and Sunday afternoon and evening gigs at the Mariposa Pub Stage on the festival grounds! There are gigs for both you day timers and night owls!  Worth staying to the bitter, with The Milk Carton Kids on the MainStage late Sunday night after our pub tent gig!

Hope to see you out at one of the gigs.  We will, no doubt, be posting pics on our Facebook band page during the weekend and I will have some more musings etc. for you all after the event!
