Tour with Kim Wempe: Canada & USA from November 2nd to 30th

October 28th, 2012

Kim Wempe and I have logged a lot of road miles together. In 2009, we teamed up for our first ever cross-Canada tour that took us from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island. It seems like a long time ago now – as wide-eyed and energetic as we were. Since then we’ve each released two solo albums, toured non-stop, won some awards, and gained some wisdom. But that doesn’t make us any less excited to be hitting the road together again!

You’re in for a high energy, laugh/cry/stomp your feet kind of show. There will be folk, there will be blues, and there will be some “Take me to the River!” gospel all wrapped up in a sweet Americana package. Are you ready? Bring your friends. Bring your family. Bring your date. Don’t miss these shows:
