Last Saturday we performed at Gibson’s Dougall Park for the Jazz Festival. It was great for us to hit the stage after roughly ten months apart. We have been lucky enough to befriend many of the local musicians here over our 3 total visits. Our friends Rakish Angles opened up the festival at noon with their delightful blend of folk, contemporary and bluegrass. Three of our own troops were invited up to perform in a very tasteful tribute to the late great Levon Helms with the song Ophelia. Afterwards, we were musicially enthralled by the trio work of Gord Grdina. We performed our suddenly very windy set to a warm and friendly audience in the afternoon park. The sun was shining and it was yet another great Gibson’s Landing Experience.
Monday evening we lead a fun and educational clinic yesterday with the “Creek Big Band”, then the next monring we hit the road for Canmore Alberta. It was a long drive, but didn’t feel too bad compared to our previous years touring this country’s great rocky landscape. We spent Tuesday afternoon enjoying Canmore’s beautiful scenery, then we played 2 sets at Tapas, which is always such an incredible and delicious experience
