Just finished visiting my Auntie Sylvia in Dartmouth. I love her! She’s living in a retirement home now. She’s my Ma’s older sister. I’m happy to announce that at the tender young age of 86 she met a guy and found new love. His name is Ches (yes Ches) and she introduced him to me as her “boyfriend”. She’s a widow and this makes my heart extremely happy for her. She has a spring in her step and she’s sharp as a needle. What a great visit. Sigh. It’s never too late.
I have a lot of unread emails. One day I’m going to hole up in a hotel room for a month and weed through them and make some room for a vintage coffee table, bureau and chesterfield I recently purchased at a flea market in Annapolis Royal. Until then I will live with this madness.
“Calling Dr. Bombay, calling Dr. Bombay. Emergency! Come right away!”
One time I stood in front of a garage door and I yelled things at people as they walked by. Sometimes people yelled back and other times they just walked away faster. Eventually I was chained to the fence and told to be good but I ended up going on a hunger strike until my neck got skinny enough to slide out of my leash and I was free. Now I’m back to barking and yelling things at passersby. The moral of the story is that spots don’t change their lions or something like that.
Thank you Mount Stewart, Prince Edward Island. Great crowd last night at The Trailside Inn. I love when people rally on a Tuesday night. Place was at capacity and the food was so good. They must grow potatoes here because my potatoes tasted like the best potatoes I’ve ever had. Fresh from the womb potatoes. This place is beyond pretty.
So now I’m fixing to leave PEI and head over the bridge to Nova Scotia. Specifically Truro. I play The Marigold Theater tonight Aug 27 at 7:30.
Then? My final Nova Scotia show is Thursday Aug 28 in Halifax. I play The Carleton for Halifax Urban Folk Festival. That’s tomorrow night.
Friday night Aug 29 I’ll be in Norwalk Connecticut along with Toad The Wet Sprocket at Norwalk Concert Hall.
Saturday and Sunday Aug 30 and 31 I’m playing Fayetteville Arkansas for Fayetteville Roots Festival.
That’s all I can remember for now. Did I mention how friggin pretty PEI is? So pastoral and peaceful with lazy breezes.
Gotta shower. Later gator.
I’m here! Prince Edward Island. Show time 8pm tonight. Food starts at 6pm and it’s good!

Thanks Newfoundland! I loves ya.
This is where I store my guitars–> Burlington Newfoundland. A hamlet in a bucolic setting with a silence to end all silences. Even the dogs are chill. They just meander down the gravel roads and look at you with one eye open and ask for biscuits in a very non-aggressive manor. Life is easy and slow and rush hour is plush hour. I don’t even have to lock the doors of this storage unit. It holds 38 guitars and two parakeets and 4 fleas. I think I’ll stay for a month or until I run out of fish cakes.
