British Columbia Tour & More Reviews

snakeGoodness gracious! Time really does fly when you’re having fun. Lauren and I have been gigging all around Alberta this past couple of months and we’ve been busy planning out the final details of our upcoming ‘Tails Is West‘ Summer Tour through British Columbia’s Interior and Gulf Islands. We had such a great time out there this past Spring that we couldn’t stay away – and we’re so excited to see many familiar faces.

This past week we enjoyed performing in quaint Milk River, AB and exploring the Writing On Stone Provincial Park. It’s like a mini-Drumheller of sorts, but in no way less impressive or fascinating. The landforms out there are just breathtaking and the history of the area has stirred up new song ideas.

In other news, we’ve discovered two other album reviews – one of which appears to be on an Italian website? Hooray for getting the music out there! Check them out here and here.

3 hours, 3 cheese breads, one bag of lime chips, and 2 apples later... We are finally here!! Milk River for the win.

The part of Banff that is currently not on fire. We decided not to go hiking but instead hit up the grizzly paw brew pub in neighbouring Canmore! If you like ice cold beer say "Aye"

Music in the plaza is seriously the coolest out door live music event ever! If you have not been there it's worth going... Every Wednesday night in the summer!!! Thanks Heritage Park!
