Last week, Ian Sherwood and I embarked on a week tour. “5 Days in May” we called it, though I actually only joined the bill for four, and we wove our way around beautiful British Columbia.
I was reminded of three things I love about touring:
1) Getting to hear other musicians. Ian is a fantastic songwriter and performer and I loved getting to watch and hear him four nights in a row. Here is is being marvelous at the Bluebelle Bistro in Kaslo:
2) Getting to visit beautiful places, via scenic drives (ok not always, but this tour in its well timed brevity didn’t have a grey day or bad view in it, from Vancouver to Kelowna, Silverton, Kaslo, Penticton, Ashcroft and back). Here I am in New Denver:
3) Getting to see family and friends I don’t see often enough. Here two of my beautiful cousins and I, in Kelowna:
The next tour will be in July – see you then musicians/places/friends!
