Me and Hank

 

This summer I opted out of the fifty songs in 90 days 50/90 challenge to focus on practicing the heck out of my instruments using yousician.com, and to start pre-production on my long time coming, and still a long time to come next album, with my friend Nick Howell, who is just about to release a brilliant debut album.

While my own album remains mired in procrastinati… — I mean pre-production, I keep showing up on other people’s projects. My FAWM 2015 co-write with Daniel Jun Kim, Search For Spock, is on his Pop Mythology and Friends album.
Earlier this year, I had a co-write with Stephen Wordsmith on his delightfully eclectic album, Tinnitus.

It has been a summer filled with music.  Earlier this summer, my family went to an annual favorite, The Canturbury Folk Festival in Ingersoll.  Later my mind was blown by a screening of the Frank Zappa documentary, Eat that Question at the TIFF theater.

We have just returned from a 2 week east coast vacation.  Amongst the great scenery, the seafood, and the good times, we took in some amazing music.  Highlights included the Lunenberg Kitchen Party, where I played a couple tunes and Old Home Week in Charlottetown which featured a nightly showcase of PEI musicians organized by the amazing Eddy Quinn.

 

 

A personal musical highlight came half unexpectedly at the Hank Snow museum, in the old train station in Liverpool NS.  As expected, the museum houses a retrospective of the life and career of Hank Snow, but also is home to the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame.  I recorded 2 versions of Hank Snow’s Fool Such as I in liverpool, one in front of the hank snow museum, but the wind noise is overpowering.  The other, on the shore turned out much better.

 

We capped the holiday off in Kingston with 25000 people for the telecast of the last Tragically Hip concert.
