Into to the studio
I am heading into the studio in November 2013 to finally record my next CD! Going to be out playing some in Noveber as well with a full band, should be a blast. New site on its way as well... The Olive rolls again.
Rain: Songs of Loss and Hope
The Waskaganish community album is finished and I am very proud of all the work that went into RAIN: Songs of Loss and Hope. The launch party was a huge success with two nights of concerts.
The photo is of the second night, and yes that is me playing an electric guitar!
The Road Rolling Live a Rough Sea
This summer was one of adventure; cycling through Central America. Having spent a long winter on the James Bay Derek arrived in Panama City where it was so hot that the camera lens would fog up from the humidity. While riding down roads with people working hard beating back the ever encroaching green with machetes, they would often raise their hands to wave at the strangers rolling by. Camping under mango trees, sweating out the winter, meeting so many kind people, as always on a bicycle the world was there with open arms.
The photo was taken in San Cristóbal de las Casas, a mountain town in Chiapas, Mexico.
