My final week here in Canada: Islands Folk Festival, a surprise gig on Pender Island, a concert in a cafe, another by a lake, all filled with unfathomably kind Canadians.

One left and then home... X

Canadians Being Nice, Episode 1073.

Elissa from Prince George, who took in Syrian refugees last year, has taken in a family displaced by the worst wildfires seen in this area for decades. One of the group is pregnant, due to be induced the next day.

Not that this stops her hosting almost 60 people for a concert in her garden. You can see some photos by Philomena Hughes here: https://www.facebook.com/philomena.hughes/media_set?set=a.10155428807945930.1073742131.670095929&type=3

That night their truck is broken into (not so nice). Whilst she recounts this story to a friend in a restaurant the next day, a stranger overhears and offers a handful of cash to the affected family. Some good people here. All very standard stuff for them.

Played another private concert the next night too that I really enjoyed. Thanks to all in Prince George for those.

Am in Vancouver Island now for the Islands Folk Festival. Sad to be missing the final Tonefest this weekend, but it is pretty beautiful here...

Prince George has some bad coverage but we are truly a caring city and I've never felt unsafe here.

Vancouver Folk Festival, what an experience.

Great to catch you on the main stage, blast from the (St Andrews) past and very impressed! Hope to hear more good stuff over the weekend.

I love Canadian Immigration.
When you say "Hi I'm here to play some music festivals", they say "That's so cool, have an awesome show".

StanFest, Nova Scotia, Canada.
Theres a tradition at Canadian Festivals to put different artists together on stage and see what happens. You bounce off each other, share songs and think on your feet. I love it. Especially when placed with hairy titans of songwriting like Old Man Luedecke Ben Caplan Dylan Menzie Devarrow and Steve Maloney and the Wandering Kind.
Loads of rain meant I couldnt do my solo show, next time maybe. Thanks to all on the East Coast. Hope to be back soon. Next up its the West Coast, Vancouver and beyond!

Not pictured - an impossibly great crowd.
North Country Fair Canada, one of my favourite ever festival weekends.

Fires, the best restroom in Canada (official), and Ron Burgundy playing the jazz trumpet here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BVydw-hhvgO/

So much to love, but moving on to Nova Scotia now.

Just want to send some thanks to CBC Music for adding Ghostess to their playlists ahead of the Canadian tour this summer. CBC are like the BBC, only the next letter on, and in Canada.

Also a great chance to share some artwork by the great and powerful Alex Genn-Bash Photography.

Writing is going well, more to follow. Have a great weekend everyone!

A good friend just died - Jonty Martindale who ran Bootleggers in Kendal - and it has absolutely floored me.

He was a passionate, belligerent, generous, gobby, beautiful bastard, a champion of live music and I loved him. He believed in me and I want to repay that by being a better musician.

Push the button on the bar from me Bootleggers.

Am still alive! Just been writing a lot. Writing writing #writing. And plotting. Did make time for some light scheming, but that was ultimately subsumed within other more generic conspiratorial activities.

Next week Ill be joining hundreds of other songwriters, musicians and artists at the Folk Alliance International showcase in Kansas City. They include heroes like Billy Bragg and Ani DiFranco and friend-eroes like Samantha Whates, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker, Blair Dunlop, Rachel Sermanni... and like 20 more.

Were going to sit around sharing songs with each other and people in the music industry and see where it leads. Hopefully some more touring, recording, and excellent fun.

Thanks especially to British Underground and English Folk Dance and Song Society for all the support #FAI2017.

More news on some big Canada tours coming soon!
