Day 33 and this particular Canadian tour comes to an end! It’s been the best Canadian tour I’ve had yet, in both the practical, concrete ways and the intangible and magical ways.

Upon getting home, I sat on the couch and played ukulele covers of all the tour/homecoming songs I could think of. There are so many good ones, I’m not sure I’d ever need to write another. Here’s a bite of Brandi Carlile’s “What Did I Ever Come Here For.”

My heart is full. My body is tired. I’ve given and received so much.

Now that three wintery months have passed, it is time to take this show back on the road!

In a couple weeks, the CD release tour for The Living Record will resume. I’ll return to a couple of familiar places, and then head east to the Maritimes to play shows in Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland for the first time ever.

I am SO looking forward to taking my west coast self to that east coast to share these tunes with the good folk there. Between now and reaching the Atlantic, I’ll be performing at Sâkêwêwak Festival in Regina, getting my folk on at the International Folk Alliance in Toronto, and performing in Toronto and Montreal.

Before I leave town in 7 days for 6 weeks, we’re filming a music video! It’s been a blast planning and pulling it together with director Kate Kroll. We spent all day shopping for wardrobe – here I am getting my vintage on at Burcu’s off Main Street in Vancouver:
