  • A cover song for summer

    Just a quick note to share with you a fun cover I did two summers ago here in Montreal.
    Myself, Peter X and Loel Campbell got together at Matt Lederman’s one sweltering night during the peak of the student protests and knocked out one of my favourite Bob Dylan songs. Matt recorded the whole thing and mixed it much later. Thought I’d share it with you all. Enjoy!

  • Summer plans

    A little bit of news for you all.
    There are a few shows coming up for the summer, and more to be added throughout the fall and beyond, but you already knew that.

    New Podcast:

    In other news, I have posted a new version of the Mind Parade podcast. Thus Owls chatted with me about their new record and their process of making the music they do. Check it out!

    Julie Doiron & the Wooden Stars shows:

    Also, aside from the MF shows, there is something else quite special brewing. It turns out that this year is the 15th anniversary of the album we made as Julie Doiron & the Wooden Stars. It’s a great album, and we never toured it as such – most of the mass of touring that we did was done before this record was made. Anyhow, we are doing a small string of shows in August, and we’ll be very happy to see you if you can make it to any of them.

    August 20, Arboretum Festival, Ottawa
    August 21, Horseshoe Tavern, Toronto
    August 22, La Sala Rossa , Montreal
    August 23, Peterborough Folk Fest , Peterborough

    See you soon. Also check out the MF shows.

    In this episode you get to hear me have a chat with Erika and Simon Angel of Thus Owls, as they riff on everything from Peter Frampton to free improvisation. Their newest record, Turning Rocks, is available from Secret City Records and they are touring all over the place, so consider this preparation for when you go see their next show in your town. Enjoy!
