Lot’s of ‘CAR STUFF’ in this post! The shoot for Jeff’s Musical Car is out and here it is… Thanks Jeff!!!
Well that was an interesting drive eh?!
Going to PEI (first time for Robert & not since the 70′s for Cailin!) was a bumpy, foggy and fun ride too. We won Continue reading
We were in “Jeff’s Musical Car“! So much fun!
Jeff Boudreau, from Moncton, NB, drives around the country making video recordings of musicians from all sorts of genres for his weekly video podcasts. In the back seat of his car! Our session will not be available for a couple of months from the looks of the schedule already online at: JeffsMusicalCar.com
Not to worry! We’ll post the video as soon as it’s up.
Great night at Rose & Kettle Concert!

Happy New Year!
We’re looking forward to playing at the Rose & Kettle Concert Series on Thursday Jan. 23rd. This great series has hosted some amazing artists over the years and are fortunate to have a spot for ourselves. We are putting the finishing touches on some new tunes that we plan to debut with the wonderfully attentive audiences they draw. Admission is ‘by the boot’, which they literally pass around at intermission. Tasty treats, coffee and tea are available here at the Rose and Kettle Tearoom at the Cole Harbour Rural Heritage Farm, 471 Poplar Drive, just off of Otago Drive in Cole Harbour. Arrive early for a good seat!
Also upcoming is the ROCA House Spring Sessions including:
- Erin Costelo – March 15 – Vocal Workshop (day) & Concert (evening)
- Stan Carew & John Campbelljohn – March 29 – Concert
- Thom Swift – April 11 – Finger Picking & Slide Guitar Workshop (day) & Concert (evening)
- Pat Patisson Songwriting Workshop – May 3 / 4 – full two day intensive workshop
- Brent Mason – May 11 – Concert
And finally, we have a new video! Robert did some editing and put this new video together of one of our cover tunes – Landslide, by Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac. This video was recorded at the Westacres House Concert in BC, June 2013.
Robert has been very busy learning how to splice and dice video and here’s the first one! The footage was taken at a house concert in Maple Ridge last June. Paul Benekritis shot the film, Greg Stewart recorded the whole thing, and here it is.
Video is so important to musicians today. It’s how we get known and show the people who matter that we have fans so we can get booked for gigs. We’ve submitted this video to the Stan Rogers Festival and we need votes to get in. LOTS of votes. Luckily, you can vote every day if you wanted to. Just click on the video and click ‘Like’. Share it up on Facebook to your friends, too, if you have a mind. That would be the best gift we could ever get for Christmas!
In the meantime, we have a gift for you! A few years back, we recorded a simple Christmas CD at our friend Greg Stewart’s place. It was originally intended as a little Christmas gift for friends and family and we’d like you to have it, too! Click here to download one or all of the songs. And have a very Merry Christmas!
Robert & Cailin
We love the fresh snow, sunny days, moonlit nights and walking the dogs at ROCA House and we’re looking forward to upcoming gigs: Trellis Cafe, Hubbard’s (N.S. best restaurant in 2012!) on Friday and the next day the new Just Us!, Dartmouth then Alderney Landing on the 21st for our last gig before Christmas.
Over the Christmas holidays, we’ll be writing, having friends and family over, and getting out to visit a bit too. Give us a call and drop in! We’ll be here and maybe we can all walk Daisy & Duke!
January 23rd we’re at the Rose & Kettle Concert Series which is a great concert venue at the Cole Harbour Heritage Farm. Hope you can make it!
