Good people of Winnipeg, and other places too…
It has been spring, summer, and now winter again all in the space of one week but I love this town to pieces and I am so happy to have been home, even for a little while.
On Thursday I leave for Ottawa to meet up and SING with the girls at the Junos! I can’t wait – Nicky, Heather and I have not sung together since September! It’s gonna be so great.
Before I go I am singing with Rose Cousins at the West End Cultural Centre on Wednesday night for her CD release – can’t wait for this either. And I think JP Hoe will be there too and my good friend Austin Nevins…how could this be better??
Not only that but Rose’s new record – We Have Made a Spark – is seriously breaking my heart (in the best possible way). Go out and get it.
Also in my player – Declan O’Rourke‘s CD Mag Pai Zai. Beautiful singersongwriter from Ireland… And lingering in my brain – Half Blood Blues, by Esi Edugyan. Exquisite novel by a great writer from Victoria.
More from me soon. Love and happy Seasons, Ruth
