Summer Festival Appearances

It’s that time of year again – when all the songwriters shamble across the country to hot hay fields mowed down for camping and pop up outdoor stages and big top tents and stilt walkers and henna painters and some of the best live music you’ll hear all year. It’s folk festival season! And I’m happy to be a small part of a few great ones. See you in the sun!

Carmel Mikol with special guests The Modern Grass – Annual Spring Concert Events!

Hiya Folks!

BIG concert announcement here: I’ve lassoed the incredible bluegrass/folk band The Modern Grass to join me this year for my special Spring Concert Events. I’ve been coming home every spring to play shows and always promise to bring some good friends with me as a special treat for you. Well, this year I’m really delivering on that promise (if I do say so myself).

If you haven’t heard The Modern Grass before, check them out here:

They are so, so goo
d. We’ll be working up some great collaborations and Dobro player Andrew Sneddon will be joining me for my set as well. Oh, and did I mention this will be The Modern Grass’ album release in Cape Breton? They have a wonderful brand new record to share! 

I’m so excited to play this wonderful show for all of you! Let’s hope all the snow melts in time.
p.s. To really top it off, Otis Tomas will also be joining me for a guest appearance.

Vote for “Never Promised You Nothing” for ECMA Award

The East Coast Music Association celebrates the hard work of maritime artists every year. I love to see my friends doing well and it’s fun to have a small part in helping them do great work.

This year two good friends are up for ECMA awards for projects that I contributed to. Rachel Davis, of late a world traveler with the band Coig,  put out a gorgeous solo album this year called Turns. She was kind enough to record my song “Over the Mountain” and sang her heart out on it. That album is up for Rising Star Recording of the Year and Traditional Instrumental Recording of the Year.

I co-write three songs for Kim Wempe’s 2013 release Coalition and she recorded two of my songs as well. She’s up for Pop Recording of the Year and Fan’s Choice Video of the Year. The video that’s up for the award is a song I wrote a few years back called “Never Promised You Nothing.” You can  watch the video then VOTE once a day for that video here:


Thanks for your support folks!

See you at a show real soon:
