Summer Schedule

We try to keep the top post on this page fresh with what’s up next, but to be honest, we’re bouncing around so much and so quickly this summer that it’s getting tough! The next few weeks see us visit Virgina, Nebraska, North Carolina, Delaware, Alberta, British Columbia for a mix of festivals, special events, regular concerts, summer concert series, string camps…

Celebrating Canada 150!

We are extremely excited to be headed back to Canada to help celebrate our nation’s 150th birthday. So many wonderful celebrations and events have been planned and will take place (all year long!) and we can’t wait to come together with you in honour of this very special occasion for events in BC, ON & AB through July & August!

Anti-Heroin Chic is a collective journal of poetry, photography, art work, stories, essays, interviews and more. In their words, they “strive for inclusion and a diversity of voices, not to disparage others but to lift them up.” Now THAT is a beautiful thing. We thank them for the feature & interview that went live today!
