Hi! I'm sitting under an October sky and OH! how I Love October skies!! It seems they must be my favourite as I believe I've written about this particular shade of blue before. A clear, crisp, shiny blue... Maybe it's the way it bounces off the yellows, oranges and reds but somehow it's more satisfying than a Summer heat wave blue, this Indian Summer shade...I've been travelling a lot these past few months and Music has been paving my way to all sorts of different places. I am so very thankful that the songs inside me are getting heard by more and more people and even more thankful that my Dodge '92 is keeping up her end of the bargain. I was planning a tour out to the West Coast of Canada this fall, but have since decided that she, my van, might like to live a little longer, and a Spring tour may be easier on her old nerves...Speaking of nerves, I will be doing a show with Ron Sexsmith in just over a week, I am peachy thrilled and only wish that all the eyes reading this could also bring their ears and be thrilled themselves!! I'll let you know how is goes for sure... I think it will be better than superb!! In the meantime I have some free time to write... and hope to have another new song for my show this weekend at The Black Sheep Inn. If only I could finish a few that I am working on at present.. sometimes they take forever to complete and other times there are ready within minutes... who knows where it comes from, where any of it comes from, but I am tremendously thankful for the gift of song that I have been given and will continue to share...until there are no meals, wheels or deals... Take care, Lindsay xo
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
