How did it get to be December?

Okay, so I’ve been meaning to make this blog entry for quite a while.  You know how it goes, long to-do lists, and limited internet time on the road…  These posts get pushed back sometimes despite my best intentions.  And now when I finally got around to it I checked the date of my last entry and I can’t believe that was only a month ago and how much has happened and how many places I’ve been since that tour!  And that it’s nearly Christmas!  And it’s nearly 2010 already!  This year has flown by.  And it’s been a great one.

Since my last entry, we finished our crazy busy tour of the south – something like 12 shows in 10 days!  It was so much fun.  Then we played the Canadian Folk Music Awards in Ottawa which was a real honour!  I spent a couple of days in MN with Bill & Kate Isles (not long enough but at least I got a little Bill & Kate fix!)

I’ve spent the last few weeks on the road with Bowfire.  It’s been a blast playing in so many interesting places, and having days off in places like New Orleans & Vegas!  We’ve been performing a brand new holiday show which was challenging to get together and fun once we got it down! 

Right now I am excited about finally getting home for over a week.  And I am trying to keep up with getting everything ready for our winter tours.  It’s going to be non-stop from January through to the summer months, and we’re hoping we’ll have a bunch of festival stops lined up soon for then!

Since this may be my last post of 2009, I want to take a minute to thank my agents: Mike Green & Associates and Near North Music for their devotion and hard work in keeping the AVB going down the road.  I want to thank Clay & Cody – they rock so hard.  I thank my husband and my family for putting up with me and this crazy schedule (252 days on the road this year).  And I thank you for your support!

Happy Holidays everyone!
