Spring Things: MSNG 2013 & Opening for Amelia Curran

March 13th, 2013

The ground swells, the trees loosen, the stones push their stubborn foreheads up through the yellow grass. The birds eat salt-stained debris from the streets. The snow crawls back to where it came from. Spring.

One of my favourite projects happens each Spring: Music Shapes New Glasgow Concert Series. It’s when I get to go behind the curtain and help organize a great concert series of musicians I love. And this year, I get to play too!

Opening for (the amazing) Amelia Curran
April 5th – 8pm at the Celtic Circle Performing Arts Centre
New Glasgow, Nova Scotia 

Tickets: $20 + fees. Get tickets here

I’ve got a full schedule of showcasing and business to keep me out of trouble all week. But I highly recommend you get in as much trouble as possible: see as many shows as you can, meet as many new friends as you can, dance a few jigs, and have a Scotch or two for me while you’re at it.
