The very best for the new year ahead to all.
What’s happening….hmmmm….Lynn Miles and I are doing several shows over the next while – check the SHOWS page or Lynn’s website for details.
I’ve completed production on a new CD for Ottawa songwriter Howie Hooper, and he’s planning a release date January 27th (details on his website) at which I will be joining him on guitar and mandolin. I’m now working on recordings for songwriters Ken Foster (check out the Christmas song Ken and I did: http://cdbaby.com/cd/kenfosterband) and Erin Driscoll, and The Keith Glass Band.
Also doing some shows as the Keith Glass band (or KGB) – with Alistair Dennett on drums and Mike Turenne (Sue Foley Band, Drew Nelson, and many more) on bass. It’s a gas playing with these guys – Alistair and I have been playing, off and on, since high school (when dinosaurs roamed the earth…) and Mike has been with us for a year and a half.
We have started recording a new band CD, with a goal of a spring release. We should have videos for two of the songs by the new year to post on Youtube and the hope is to keep adding songs as they’re completed. More to come on that as it unfolds.
And as always, a reminder that we’re still at The Swan on the Rideau the third Wednesday of each month. Our recent (Dec 20th) Annual Christmas Blast definitely shook the rafters. What a great night!. I look forward to Swan nights more than anything. I am very grateful to George Pettit (owner) for giving me this musical home to come to once a month, and to Boomer (head bar-keep/bon-vivant/bouncer) for keeping it all together 9and for just being Boomer). Thanks to you and all the staff and fabulous patrons – Is it possible that we have been there for over 5 years? Maybe 6?…wow, time flies!
Check the Show page for upcoming stuff. I admit to being slow to update stuff, but it happens – eventually! Also, please visit the Keith Glass Band on Facebook and if you, like, like us, uhhh…. like us!
Hope to see you out there somewhere. Cheers, Keith
