God Speed, Ron Hynes…

I had the most wonderful time at the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival in Nova Scotia. I was there with the Eastern Belles and I was struck again by how truly this is a folk festival. The audience loves old folk songs, loves to engage and sing along and also is genuinely interested in each act […]

Pies, Small halls, and Habitat…

Father’s Day Pie Off and Musical Extravaganza!                 It’s been a rainy last little while, but I KNOW the sun will come back into our hearts and onto our skin and dry things out enough for the Pie Off on Sunday. My annual Pie Off and Musical Extravaganza […]

Little Rabbit Barn

It’s hard to believe I spent less than 48 hours in England, what a short but very sweet time. After my flight from Halifax was delayed by 14 hours, I arrived at Heathrow and was met by the lovely duo Terry and Vicki who were my gracious hosts in Sevenoaks. Saturday morning, we took the […]

Let’s Talk, Juno Nods, Touring…

Hello everyone, It has been a busy last little while for me, plus a very snowy time. Finally winter is here in her full majesty! Today is Bell Let’s Talk Day – a campaign in support of mental illness and aimed at ending the stigma that surrounds it. By accident (or not so much), I […]

20 years gone by…

I write today on the 20th anniversary of my father’s death. It’s a always a hard time every year, but this year it hit me like a ton of bricks. 20 years since my dad, Gene MacLellan, was here and yet it still seems like just yesterday. His music is still with us and I […]
