I’ve arrived in Calgary (after a bitch of a flight) to discover that everything they told me is true; the Canadian folk festivals really do look after you like no one else. I got met at the airport and taken to a seriously posh hotel, complete with pool. A bell boy even took my bags up to my room (after I established he wasn’t stealing them). To top it all, my attempts to ask someone directions to a guitar shop to buy some strings has led to someone going to get them for me. Madness. For those attending the festival, my main stage set is tomorrow (Friday) at 6pm.
Two new shows to tell you about, at different ends of the earth. Firstly, on August 26th the band and I will be playing another Leeds festival warm up show at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal. Tickets can be found here. It’s been a long while since I played a proper show in the north west, so it’s nice to be heading back.
Secondly, September 8th will see me play a solo headline show at the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles (tickets and information here). It’s an iconic venue, and it’s a long overdue show announcement for southern California, so I hope everyone’s as stoked as I am. Yay!
Finally, for everyone asking, the iTunes EP is going to be available outside the UK soon, not entirely sure when and there is a short delay, but it will be available, never fear.
