It's been a long time!
I have been saying those words a lot, as I've been hunkered down through this past stretch of pandemic-life, working away, creating when I can, and trying to be patient til the next time I get to dust off my instruments and don my stage duds!
I'm very excited (and sort of nervous, and slightly in disbelief) to announce that we have THREE shows coming up in very short order, as venues and bookers race to bring us all together again (outdoors!) As you can imagine, these shows are coming together Very quickly, so I don't have all the details confirmed just yet, but I'll update you when I do. Here's what I know, so you can mark your calendars and mentally prepare yourself for small talk, singalongs, and dancing outside the confines of your kitchen (as much as I love a kitchen dance party, I'm excited to dance with other humans!)
The first two are Major Love shows:
Wed July 21 - Edmonton - The Backyard (Downtown Live Kickoff Show!) 7pm
Sat July 24 - Calgary - Summer Serenades (Calgary Folk Fest series) 1130am-230pm - iskwē & Tom Wilson, Major Love and Whitehorse! TIX
Plus a good ol' Colleen Brown Band show - including some 'Isolation Songs' and other tunes new and old:
Tues July 27 - Taste Of Edmonton - Churchill Square - FREE (Update - we start at 630PM!) supporting Lucas Chaisson, Ayla Brook & the Soundmen INFO
If all goes well, I will finally have Major Love T-shirts with puppies on them. Please commence the holding-of-breath. (I'll plan to make them available online as well as in person, though it should be noted that Calgary Summer Serenades won't have a merch table.)
In the meantime, enjoy this video rendition of 'A Case Of You' I recorded last month for RANGE magazine ^^^ to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Joni's masterpiece album Blue.
And you know, brush up on your Singing Along! Those pandemic voices aren't used to so much vocalizing.
