It feels surreal, friends, but here I am writing you from the passenger seat once again!!! The Second Chances and I are headed up to Grande Prairie for a sold-out yard concert, and onward for a dozen shows away from home! It's still kinda hard to believe it's happening.

We're still playing it extra careful for now, since plenty of folks still aren't fully vaccinated, and we're going to be visiting a lot of out-of-the-way spots. I decided to write a song to break the ice about all that. I gave my Patreon followers a sneak-peek of it last week, and if you're reading this Travelogue in email form, you'll find a download code down at the bottom.
We'll be live-streaming the Prince George show so folks around the world can tune in. My Fellow Travellers on Patreon will get a link for free admission, and for the rest of you it's just a fiver to attend.
After the tour, we're headed back to the North Country Fairgrounds for the first-ever North Country Acoustic Music Camp! It's gonna be magical. We were just up there for a weekend with so many old pals, and I can't tell you how sweet it was to be back in a place so thick with memory among so many loved ones. If you're not a player, but you wanna come hang with us after the camp, the finale concert's open to the public!

At the end of August I'll be heading east on my own, playing shows across the prairies, in Ontario, and through the Northeast and Midwestern States. I'll be announcing a whole raft of dates soon, so stay tuned! And get in touch if you wanna set something up along the way.
Loveya, keep shining,
