happy folk fest weekend vancouverites! remember that thing we did last year, where i wrote songs based on people’s festival memories and then performed them live with a band and choir? well, we recorded it. and you can get it right here. thanks to our grand team of singers players and engineers. see you at the beach!
ps last night i dreamed about a Specialty Rittersport: Lobster and Gold. i think this bodes well for the upcoming berlin time.
this is what my husband likes to do after work: imagine himself as a happy forest creature.
in other news: our dec 12 concert at the vancouver east cultural centre is ready to listen to at cbc online. some songs with the old quartet, some songs with the current 9 piece extravaganza. some clapping. you know the type of thing.
what else has been going on? i just finished a little piece for the standing wave ensemble, a 2 minute remembrance of parks from my childhood. that will premiere on may 10 in vancouver. i’m working on music for the new theatre replacement show Greatest Cities in the World, opening march 9 in vancouver and travelling to montreal, ottawa, and kitchener. i have to start collecting complaints for a song for the vancouver complaints choir: send them in! and we’re still working on the new fits record, aiming to get that out for the summer time. and peter panties carries on, new songs coming without my even asking for them. ok, i think i need a nap.
