Odd Songs Tour
My Fall 2018 'Odd Songs' tour has concluded! The final show, at the lovely Al Whittle Theatre in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, was a perfect ending to the trip. 2016 ECMA Nominee Jeff Jodrey was phenomenal in his opening set of original fingerstyle guitar. Sound was done by Graham Colwell, who was a breeze and a pleasure to work with. My Mum and her friend, Grace, put on a fabulous buffet of snacks and drinks in the lobby. My Dad and Aunt Joan saved the day for box office duty. And my brother helped me video the concert - see my video page for some footage!
The Halifax show, at the Scotiabank Stage of Neptune Theatre, was called 'Odd Songs and Tea Party', and was catered by Certainly Cinnamon catering. Jeff opened there as well, and it was a fun afternoon! Another really lovely theatre.
The Canning show, at Sea-Esta, was yet another gorgeous venue - a 55 seat intimate in-home venue that overlooks the Minas Basin and has a grand piano. Brenda Johnson was an awesome host, and there were snacks and drinks partly provided by her, with some brought by generous guests.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this tour happen, and huge thanks to everyone who came out and listened to my odd songs!
Other 2018 Shows
Before I took 'Odd Songs' to the East Coast, I had a great time playing a full concert at the Heritage Playhouse in Gibsons, BC. This is a beautiful theatre, yet another one I'd love to play again someday. I also played the Sechelt Summer Music Series, the Gibsons Music in the Landing series, the monthly Pender Harbour Coffee House and a night at the Mad Park Bistro before I left, trying out some newer songs and honing the rest.
In February, I played the Pender Harbour Concert Series at the gorgeous School of Music - a full afternoon concert to a wonderful audience, where I had fun with their grand piano!
In January I put on an Album Release concert in Vancouver at the lovely Havana Theatre, for my album 'Hopscotch'. It was also the debut of my full concert of original songs and the stories that go with them, which became 'Odd Songs'.
