Time slips by so quickly. In May we gave a house concert in Belleville, Ontario and then continued through to Quebec to play a club in Ormstown called Gigzz and met up with old friends from the area where Allan lived for ten years and we had a meeting the talented and charming Christopher Pennington . From there we drove to North Carolina to attend a music conference where we were featured in three different showcases and did a video of some of our new songs. We played just outside Union Station in Toronto in a noon outdoor concert and then on to Fred Eaglesmith's Annual Charity Picnic in Aylmer, Ontario. We played there last year as well and we got a chance to relax and visit with Fred and Tiffany at there trailer before the show.
We then performed at our third annual picnic in London at Marianne's brother Mike's home near London, Ontario. In June, we decided to take a hiatus as an opportunity came up for us to visit Italy for a few months, so we have packed our things into a storage unit and we fly to Umbria, Italy on Sunday. Our friends David Hines and Lynette Fairweather have our cats while we are in Europe and they seemed very happy there when we attended a party there a few weeks ago. You do get attached over three years. This Saturday, August 27, 2016 at the Black Swan in Toronto, we will record one of Tony Quarrington songs, Hellhound On My Lawn, for inclusion on an album of Quarrington's original songs to be released next winter. Also on the bill are Jon Brooks, Joe Hall, Wendell Ferguson; Laura Fernandez and several other artists.
