I absolutely Love Autumn. Just have a look around you, providing you are reading this and in North America... I mean LOOK at the brilliance around us. I was almost depressed at the end of Summer, seeing as there really wasn't a Summer, but then I got back from another two week whirlwhind trip to Newfoundland and there they were, the leaves in full glory. It's almost as though the splendour of those colours just erased my confusion and replaced it with some kind of wonderful. The smell of the air is enough to send me into a special sort of stir. If any of you have bicycles out there, I say HOP ON!! My bicycle isn't anything fancy, I bought it at a garage sale for forty bucks, seeing as my last bike was stolen, I really don't want THAT to happen again... anyway, yes to bike riding in the fall!!! In the meantime, I started a cleanse, which is GREATLY needed after living a whole summer out of bags and hopping from couch to couch there isn't really a structure of nourishment in that lifestyle...I think a cleanse is exactly what I need. Also, the West Coast Tour is falling into place, but it may have to happen in the Spring, which is totally acceptable as long as I get to play music and NOT go back to waitressing. I think fifteen years is long enough at THAT trade... wish me luck!!! The big Wakefield Community Centre Benefit is happeing on the 10th of OCtober at The Black Sheep Inn... if you live nearby, this show is going to be amazing with GREAT talent including: The Grass, The Brothers, Ty Hall & the EZ3 and of course yours truly... there will be Mondo dancing and a great start to Thanksgiving. Ciao for now, more to come....Lxo
Hey guys. I an still pretty tired after a crazy weekend of playing HEAPS of music & not sleeping nearly enough. This past weekend was the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals Conference, held in London Ontario. The whole thing started on Thursday and didn't end until the wee hours of Sunday Morning. It's a big conference held once a year where musicians & festival directors, radio stations, publicists etc etc come together to meet each other, try to book acts & all round self promotion. It's music playing with a capital "M." The weekend is a blast, with SO many things to do & places to be... I'm still flying!!! (but SOOOOOOOOO tired!!)
as for the missing 500 cd's.... well they, and my 92 van were found!!! the cd's weren't stolen but my stereo was!! not to mention all the damage that the thieves did to the van.... it's in the garage as we speak. There were MANY people who came to my aid with this issue... I am so grateful to have such a great support network, even people I've never met before... thanks Lynn Saxberg for writing a column about it in The Ottawa Citizen, & thanks to Colin Mills at Healey Disc for offering to replace the stolen Cd's. Big Love goes out to you all.
500 copies of Lindsay's new CD, "Sound", have been stolen!!! We need your help. If anyone knows anything, or has seen anyone driving Lindsay's signature white van since Monday, Oct 8th, or where the CDs might be, (cause it's hard to hide 500 CDs), please contact email@example.com. The van itself, as you might guess, is now less important that getting the CDs back. No charges will be made if the CDs are returned, but that she'll be 100% anonymous with the entire matter.
