It was really something special to be part of the great lineup which opened the FIRST TUESDAY MUSE in Tweed Ontario at the infamous Tweedsmuir Tavern.

Many thanks to Billy Piton and Peter Snell who have created this fine event which will happen every first Tuesday of the month at the Tweedsmuir Tavern starting at 7pm. If you didn’t make it to the first show – make sure you come for the second show and then the one after that and so on.

I dearly hope to be invited back again this year – until then…’s what I read live to the audience -fused to their chairs….waiting for that other fella to come up on stage……. just scroll on down this page and you’ll find some tracks….

Thanks again!
