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.

Calgary Folk Festival 2013

What a weekend! Only five weeks after being devastated by unprecedented flooding, the city of Calgary came out in full force to celebrate music from around the globe. Amanda and I played in workshops with artists hailing everywhere from Australia to Hamilton. We danced to the insanely joyful sounds of The Cat Empire, joked with Royal Canoe, and caught up with friends like Danny Michel, Treasa Levasseur and Corin Raymond. But I have to say that the biggest rock star we met all weekend was none other than the Mayor of Calgary himself, Naheed Nenshi, who came to our concert on Sunday afternoon. Can you tell I’m starstruck in the photo?

You can’t keep a great city down. We love you Calgary!

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.
