June in Edmonton

What a month June is turning out to be. I am excited today, just came home rom rehearsing for The Extreme Edge Ice show. The band and I are performing Everybody Matters and In a Perfect World to choreographed skating! Piles of gigs in Edmotnon this month, can’t remember ever being this busy in Edmonton. Coming up in addition to all the shows listed, I am headed to a few festivals this summer Northern Lights Festivals Boreale in Sudbury, Islands Folk Festival in Duncan, BC. The Filberg Festival in Comox and Trout Forest in Ear Falls.

The night before Sudbury I head to Serpent River First Nation the one time home of Leo Sagissige (Day) the character in my book ‘The Boy who walked backwards’ published by Manitoba First Nations Education Resource. I will be presenting the book to family and friends of Leo, many of his children and grandchildren will be in attendance and I am not sure hat to expect other than a lot of emotions! The event is being organized by Janet Day Leo’s daughter.

Also while on tour I got to sample a brand new chocolate made by artisan chocolatier Cocoaro, the chocolate is inspired by me and my ‘Used to Have a Raygun’ song. We are putting the finishing touches on the what will be the design of the wrapper. Needless to say I am pretty excited to have my own chocolate! it is yummy. You can check out www.cocoaro.ca
