Fall 2012

Wonder Dog Recording has recently joined forces with award-winning Winnipeg television producers Linda Nelson and Norm Lussier (Yayo Productions) for an ongoing project I’m really excited about. We have started filming and recording a series of house concerts featuring Manitoba artists. The program will be called House Concert on Kingston. I’m looking after the audio recording, and the results will be ready for broadcast in 2013. Based on the first two shows it’s going to be impressive. So far we’ve presented concerts by Oh My Darling and Dry Bones. The audiences and bands were fantastic, as was the catering by The Grove Pub and Restaurant. Tasty!

I was honoured to be asked to perform at a special concert celebrating the 25th anniversary of the West End Cultural Centre in October. A terrific assortment of Manitoban musicians gathered to sing songs by other Manitoban musicians. My choice was “Wage,” a killer song by Colin Bryce (Dub Rifles), made even better by the talents of Sam Baardman, Daniel Roy, and Don Benedictson who performed it with me. We kinda rocked. My song “Gardens” (written years ago after the death of my father Norm) was given a beautiful reading by Nicky Mehta (Wailin’ Jennys) and Nancy Reinhold (former Wyrd Sisters). Big thanks to Jason Hooper for the invite. Please keep supporting the West End people, it’s a gem.
