Catherine and Chris headed West

I woke up this morning in the great Canadian mid-west, moving slowly towards my ancestral homeland of Winnipeg. There I’ll be playing a show at the West End Cultural Centre on Oct 18 with Matt Epp as he releases his new record. I’m so excited to be back out on the road with Chris. We’ve […]
