It's been a while! Longer post/update will be coming soon. But I just wanted to let you know that I am playing some summer dates around Ontario, check out the dates HERE
Yesterday I watched a documentary on Nick Drake and I am inspired to get to know some more open tunings...So that's what I am doing a lot of this summer. As well as working on a NEW RECORD. And I am starting a very exciting collaboration theatre project with amazing storyteller Ivan Coyote. We have support from Nakai Theatre in Whitehorse and Canada Council and I'm really excited to widen my horizons creatively. Keep an ear and eye out for this in the upcoming year.
And more exciting announcements and updates on the new songs coming in the near future.
Until then, I hope to see you at the shows...next one is Home County Music Festival in London, ON XXX Sarah

I'm still reeling from the last 6 months. It's been pretty crazy now that I'm thinking back on it. (Good crazy!!) It started in the US with a Eastern tour with writing stops in Nashville and House of Songs in Austin. Then I got to attend the Grammys and visit my good friend who just moved to LA. From LA to Kansas City and the Folk Alliance Conference and then shows in New York City. Then onto Calgary and a show at the Juno's (Canada's grammy's). Then I continued with 5 weeks of touring in Europe. This tour was overwhelmingly great and I want to thank all of you who came out and packed the shows and all the promoters and people who helped. We love you and can't wait to come back!! I'm feeling energized and excited to work on some new songs. I always want to develop, learn more and get better. I love being in my studio. It's very rare these days. I'm appreciating this time!
This summer I'll mainly be working on new material but I'm playing a couple of festivals in Western Canada and some shows as well. Check out all the dates HERE.
And YES I am going to be coming back to the UK and also Ireland in the fall for 2 weeks only with my good friend and crazy talented songwriter Ben Kunder. Check him out www.benkunder.com
I'll also be heading back to the US for a tour in the fall as well. More on both of these tours a bit later on.
Stay inspired, enjoy the summer.
