CD Release
Hi Folks,
The CD release at the Blue Chair Café went extremely well. We had a full house and have added another show on the 31st of March. Much thanks to Harold for making that happen. We had a surprise guest; my mother gave a beautiful rendition of Danny Boy in the second set for St. Paddy's day. She hadn't sung in years and had no idea I was going to ask her. It was a great treat. I had a great interview with CBC's Katherine Duncan of the Key of A, I should know soon as to when it will air. Also Peter North said some great things about the new recording in the Edmonton Journal recently. I have posted it in
Reviews.
Cheers,
Al

Well! The new recording is finished and available. I want to thank everyone who purchased the disc so far. It was great working with John Armstrong and Barry Allen on the production-end of things and of course the most excellent musicians, Cliff Minchau and Barrie Nighswander. I had some great special guests, Terry Morrison and Cam Neufeld, on two tracks also.

You can pick it up at
Megatunes, Southside Sound in Edmonton or CD Plus in Sherwood park so far. You can also purchase through PayPal on this site or if you come out to a gig, you could just pay Al.... haha.

I am currently working on writing for the new recording. I have decided to take a new approach writing without a guitar! I am exploring using my voice as the primary writing tool and it seems to be taking me in a different direction... what the hell, it's all about the journey!

Oh yes I have just started the ball rolling on learning some songs from the 30's and 40's. What a blast.... it is most definitely a stretch vocally and for my wee brain. Who knows what will come of it. Hope to see you out at the CD release on March 17 at the Blue Chair Café in Edmonton. (see schedule for address)
