Writing to you today from self-isolation land.
This is a time that we will never forget.
This is a defining moment in our society.
And though it seems like it will last forever, it won’t. Someday we’ll go back to life, some version of it. We’ll be able to gather with friends and go to work.

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 […]
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 […]

Today I’m playing the first of 4 Ontario dates. We made the drive up from PEI and have been enjoying the change of temperature… it sure was cold back home and here we are wearing t-shirts and wishing we had shorts. I packed based on the weather at home, but oh well… Tonight is a […]
Hello again, on this fine Wednesday morning… I’m sitting here sipping tea, trying to gather the motivation to get something done. Anything… I got the girl off to school and now have started the fire so perhaps by bedtime my house might be warm. It’s been a few weeks since my furnace fuel ran out […]
Hello all… I woke up today and realized that I am now waking after the sun has on a regular basis. Thank goodness. And the Canadian air is warming, ever so slightly… maple sugaring is about to begin and I just feel like there is more energy to get things done. Winter has gone by […]
Well, I am back from Ontario, Quebec, Ireland and Nova Scotia. I had an incredibly busy winter and now I’m excited to celebrate the first day of spring!!! Can it be true? It sure doesn’t feel like spring tonight in PEI. The snow is blowing and the ice keeps forming but the moon is out […]
