May 25, 2016: Hey friends, I'm writing you from my soon-to-be-former home in East Vancouver, where I've been enjoying an unprecedented amount of uninterrupted downtime. It's been so good that I'm kinda wishing I had another month of it. Who knew staying in one place could be so much fun?...

Go Long World Tour

Fri-Sun   July 29-31   Clarendon, ON   Elated to be joining the beautiful people at Blue Skies Music Festival! I've heard about this festival for years, and it's always stirred my imagination. Even better, this year the lineup includes two of my favourite songwriters, Corin Raymond and Jonathan Byrd. Why don't I let Corin tell you about it in his own words? "Blue Skies happens on land that is collectively owned by the 100 or so folks who run the festival, and the only thing that land is used for - aside from being home to all the wildlife that lives there year-round - is Blue Skies. Nothing is left behind. Everything is recycled. The outhouses are made of timber and built right into the earth. There's a barrel of peat outside each one. They've got recycling stations with 12 different containers - for everything. The stage, the structures, everything on the site is made of canvas, timber, and rope... Children are raised there, year after year. It's the most genuine community I've ever experienced at a fest." Camping passes are sold out, but there are still day passes available here. I'm on Main Stage at 8pm Saturday, and hosting a workshop on the Hilltop at 1pm Sunday. It's gonna be magic.
