John Lennon Songwriting Contest & POP Montreal

 I am so pleased to announce that the song "Green Mountain State" that I co-wrote with the Rusty Horse Band (and was featured in Sarah Polley's film, "Take This Waltz") just won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the Folk Category! Check us out on the front page:

We are so stoked, and what fabulous news to receive while on tour. Leah and I have had a fabulous trip - We are on the train home to Montreal as we speak, Leah's editing some sweet photos beside me and we're just catching up on some e-mails. We'll be posting some good ones soon!

In the meantime, here's a shot of us playing with Sarah Jane Scouten and Kristen Berkel in Bruno, SK! We happened to run into them in Saskatoon the night before, and they invited us to come celebtrate the arrival of CTV Saskatoon, in Bruno. We jammed all day, and Leah even line danced.

Oh and did I mention that we'll be playing TWICE at POP Montreal this year? Come hang out at Petit Campus on Friday Sept. 27th for 8:30pm (, or at Brasserie Beaubien on Sunday Sept. 29th (with the full band!) at 9:15pm (, or both! We'd love to see you there.

'till next time!
