  NASHVILLE IN NOVEMBER: Off for my annual writing sojourn, Can't wait.

I have released a new CD, called `Look for the Sun Vol.  a collection of previously recorded material from my four CD’s, with three new tracks that I recorded with John Reishman and the Jaybirds.

`Bad Medicine’  a song inspired by Judge John Reilly’s book Bad Medicine: a judge’s struggle for justice in a First Nations Community, will appear in his new book, `Bad Judgement'. 

`Bad Medicine' was a finalist in the 2014 Calgary Folk Festival Song Contest. This is the 5th time I've been a finalist in this competition.

 The song will be performed at Judge Reilly's book launch on Dec 3rd at the GeorgeTown Inn, Canmore, AB. 

 “The song is a brave and unflinching engagement with the colonial legacy of suicide and addiction on local first nations peoples”. Katherine Binhammer 

                                                               Listen to Bad Medicine
