Hosted by Mia Sheard with Lori Cullen, David Matheson, and Kurt Swinghammer

This is the road version of the cabaret show that we’ve done at Hugh’s room annually (photo from a couple years ago). Always a treat to bust out some classic Joni tunes and play with these fine musicians, including Ryan Granville Martin on drums and Chris Gartner on bass.

Jamming along to Jefferson Airplane’s White Rabbit on an 8 foot tall guitarequin arted up for the Streets Alive - Guitars On Parade festival in Orillia, Ontario, as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the Mariposa Folk Festival. Shout out to Ed Robertson from Barenaked Ladies for sponsoring me. The images on the axe are based on the WAV files of digital recordings of my voice saying “Mariposa” (on the front), and “Orillia” (on the back). The guitar was one of 50 by various artists that were installed along the main street of the town, and on display throughout the summer and fall of 2010.

Aquainted With The Night is a beautiful new feature length doc by Michael McNamara of Markham Street Films. Shot in a dozen locations around the world, it needed a diverse soundtrack to match. After a premiere screening at the Bloor Cinema in Toronto, the piece will be aired on Roger’s Cable locally. Down the road it will be broadcast on the Documentary Channel – I’ll post dates & times if I can.
