Well, here we are. July 3rd. Gearing up for a busy summer teaching and performing. Looking forward to it. Also some recording projects in the works. Had a young lady from Buffalo Lake Alberta here today recording her 1st fiddle cd today. Her name is Amber Gordon. She's a natural fiddler. You'll enjoy her CD when it comes out. Then Daniel Gervais comes into tomorrow to start his next CD. He's the reigning Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Champion. Yee Haw....

Off to Chelmsford Ontario to judge & entertain on July 13 & 14. I'm gonna have Melika & Paul Lemelin back me up there. Looking forward to that.  Then back home for the Vilna Cowboy Fest and then Camp Calvin. 2 weeks of fiddle camp. Still some room available if your interested in coming. This is the 1st time the camp goes 2 weeks.

I've done some real fun gigs lately playing with 'Country Swing' at various functions in and around the Edmonton area. Also I went down to play at the Steel Guitar Show in Caroline Alberta hosted by Jeff Bradshaw. What a wonderful time with Redd Volkaert, Dave Hamilton, Derek Stremel, Chad Melchert & myself in the back up band. Steel players included, Jeff Bradshaw, John Lacey, Wayne link, Smokey Fennel Neil Degraw, Ian Stewart and special guest Kayton Roberts. Kayton was the steel player with Hank Snow. A big time had by all.

I've only got in about 5 or 6 games of golf this year, so far, but they've been fun. Looking forward to getting out some more this summer..

That's it for now. Hope to see you soon.
