A Mariposa to Remember

MariposaAlmost 10 years after making their Mariposa debut, Amanda and Sheila took to the main stage at this year’s festival, playing a moonlit set right before Roseanne Cash. It was truly a weekend to remember, with Gordon Lightfoot himself making a surprise appearance during the Gordon Lightfoot workshop.

Best Day








Aloha from Maui

Amanda and I made it safely to Maui after about ten and half hours in total in the air. I don’t mind the time difference here, as it means I get to watch the sunrise during my early morning run. I could have sworn that Lance Armstrong rode by me this morning. We did the respectful nod in passing, and then I did a triple take. However, the next cyclist who passed me also looked a lot like Lance Armstrong…I was really dehydrated.

Tomorrow night we perform at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, and then on Saturday we grab a flight to Oahu to play the Sufer Bar at the Turtle Bay Resort. Our final show will be in Kauai at the Kauai Community College Performing Arts Center. We may or may not perform all our songs on ukulele.

We’ve only been on the island a few days, but I think my breathing has already slowed down to match the sound of the waves. Amanda is currenly doing yoga by the beach, and we’re planning on meeting up for morning Mai Tais. I think it’s 3 o’clock in Toronto.
