Monday, Feb 4 6-8pm. The Cameron House I'll be joined by the both laughably great, Sean Cotton and Christina Hutt. They're coming a long way for this one so I hope some of you make it out for them. Fact: contrary to marketing minds that believe everything is exclamatory, not all #SadMondays are created equal - this one will be especially memorable.
Beautiful news: No One Travels Alone just made NPR's Global Village 'Best Albums of 2018' list! Yeah, yeah, yeah, I just used an exclamation mark - but I needed some good news after last night's saddest Sad Monday of all time. The NPR show airs tonight at 7pm and they'll be playing something from the new album for my American brothers and sisters. Thank you Global Village, this means a lot. You are loved. http://www.kmuw.org/post/best-18-allen-toussaint-folk-golden-age-middle-east-cool-covers
Yes, beautiful individuals, the new album is formally out and available. No One Travels Alone, (Borealis Records, 2018), is a meditation on the atomic, the digital, the animals, the migrants, the stars, and the Gods; and, more essentially: on the interconnectedness of all life - hence, the title and the linkages between the songs by last and first lines. John Showman and I will be highlighting songs from it live at The Cameron House, Monday October 1, 6-8pm. Neil and I will also be doing cd release shows in Dundas, ON Carnegie Concerts on September 29 and Manitoulin Island, @ Cafe In The Woods October 13.
