Summer Touring & Recording A New Album!

A pre-show gondola ride in Wyoming.

Hey everyone,

Exciting times ahead…I’m heading out west in a few days to join up with the boys again and play at The Hornby Island Music Festival. I can’t believe I’ve never been to Hornby – after all the wonderful things I’ve heard about it I’m so thrilled to finally be making the trek up there.

On the following weekend I’ll be singing some songs with The Fretless at Folk West, in Victoria. I recently sang the title track of their beautiful new album, Waterbound, which was so much fun. Waterbound is one of my favourite songs of all time, written by the great Dirk Powell. It was a true honour to sing this song. Check the band out here, they are fantastic.

Next, the boys and I will be flying out to Ontario to play shows at Folkway Music in Guelph (August 24th) and The Windsong Music Festival in Powassan (August 25th). You can find details for these shows here.

And finally, after this, we will head to Toronto to do some recording with the wonderful David Travers-Smith, which will be phase one of the making of a new record! We are so excited!

More touring and recording news soon. Until then, I hope everyone is having a great summer.

Ruth
