It has a been a busy couple of weeks. I spent a long weekend in the southwest part of Saskatchewan a couple of weeks ago where I did a show in my hometown of Shaunavon followed by a show in Swift Current. It was a privilege to do both shows.
The Shaunavon show was held in the Grand Coteau Museum and thirty people showed up along with some of my family. As I played the show that I had been preparing for a couple of months, I was pleased with the flow and the reception of the audience. My biggest pleasure was teaching the “fun” song of the night as I had been struggling with figuring out that part of the show. It continues to be a challenge to sing some of my most vulnerable songs in front of the audience.
There was a small crowd at the coffeehouse in Swift Current along with a couple of family members. I enjoyed the small crowd and was more comfortable than in Shaunavon, having set up my sound equipment once before, and having played through the whole show prior.
A reporter from the Shaunavon Standard contacted me following the show and wrote a lovely article about the show and my career.
Since then I have booked three shows in June. Two with a singer/songwriter friend, Scott Anthony, close to Regina and one on my own here in Regina.
I seem to always be thinking of the next thing to do, the next practice session, the next song to write or song to rework. I love all the ideas and occasionally get frustrated with how long it takes things to happen.
Until next time, be well!
