I think Maritime Canada and Newfoundland and Labradour should suceed from Canada ... then maybe we will be able to book artists as such.

Dave ... count me in as a little upset of not having the opportunity in seeing John Renbourne.

If you really want to see the likes of Show Of Hands down there in The Maritimes, then get on to your local folk club(s) or concert promoters and let them know how you feel...heck SOH will play practically anywhere...from The Royal Albert Hall, to your local village hall...go for it!

Dear Canada,

Please look after Show of Hands....and make sure you send them back safe and well.

Your gain is our loss....we're missing having them at Sidmouth this year, as they're over with all of you....ho hum...but, we're going to have to learn to share them I guess....

I know you'll love them.....just don't hang on to them for tooooo long though!

Oh...Beautiful Canada, Gorgeous Canadians AND (possibly) The Best Wandering Minstrels In The Land! It's not fair...some people have all the luck! ;0)

Although....at least we got to see the wonderful James Keelaghan and Stephen Fearing this year, so that makes up for it. Mmmmmm...Canada!

Dear Canada...

Is there any chance you could take a countess?

Where's the most wild part of Canada...you know, deserted, open, boggy, wild, hundreds of miles from anywhere and BEAR RIDDEN? ....*That's* the place she'd love to be!

I'll send her over in SoH's luggage.... ;0)

Tell you what though Canada...any chance you do a pupil's exchange visit and send us Great Big Sea?

http://www.myspace.com/greatbigseaofficial

And here's James....love that 'Cold Missouri Waters' track....so sad...James is a brilliant storyteller..just like SoH.

http://www.myspace.com/jameskeelaghan

And Stephen Fearing...Oh we had such a lovely night that night...what a great chap and a fabulous guitarist!

http://www.myspace.com/stephenfearing

And you can't have a SoH Candian thread without mentioning Martyn Joseph either..a man who puts you in touch with your soul!   Martyn's often out 'that way' too....another great songwriter:

I'm not dreaming of going where the 'countess' is going!

Trust me! ;0)

Gordon Lightfoot....now there's another lovely man! His 'unofficial' myspace page got zapped though...that's a shame. Never mind, we'll improvise, as I have Canadian Railroad Fever rather badly at present.......

Right, altogether then, after three.....

"Oh there was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run. When the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun. Long before the white man and long before the wheel. When the green dark forests were too silent to be real.."


I know ALL the words to that song...I think that alone should qualify me for free entry to Canada and places at all the Show of Hands gigs.

In fact...SoH should sing that song...then I could help them out with the chorus....

I think I'm on to something here....

I love that book...and the series! Did you know it was mostly filmed in Ontario though...yup! Interesting fact for the day that was.

I'm going to dig those videos out tonight and watch them....

Actually, they could make an entire new episode, where Anne discovers the delights of Show of Hands, after seeing them at Canmore...I'll have to think up a new name for that episode...;0)

Zoom has cheap flights between Halifax and Glasgow ... unfortunaely it's schedule is seasonal ... ferrie's, none from Britain and Canada, it's a pretty big ocean between us .... PEI is now joined to the mainline by a bridge, no need for a ferry anymore (free to drive over, $70 per car to drive off the island) .... in case you are unaware, Cape Breton is connected to the mainland by a causeway for some years now.

If you want Acadian music you have forgotten the north shore of New Brunswick.

Gaspe is worth the trip in the autumn ... in fact if you schedule a trip in the fall you can catch the Celtic Colours festival in Cape Breton (October 6th - 14th) ... there is a post floating around the Cat regarding this festival.

Thanks sIx. No, I didn't actually mean a transatlantic ferry (!) but local (ish) ones that sort of cruised around the Maritimes and maybe on up the St Lawrence. A civilised way to travel. I didn't know about the new bridge and causeway as I haven't been to Canada for about 25 years. Yes, I met some Halifax musicians on Skye who told me about the cheap flight into Glasgow; you can do a stopover in Reykjavik. Isn't there much Acadian on PEI? It's where Barachois come from . . .

countess richard ... there is a small but very tight knit Acadian population on PEI ... the majority of the Acadian population is in New Brunswick, along the north shore ... in fact roughly 1/3 of the population of the province of New Brunsiwick is Acadian. New Brunswick is also, I'm proud to say since it is where I live, the only true bilingual province in Canada, as it being legislated by the province.

As per a water trip down the St. Lawrence ... I can't help you there as I have no knowledge of those services available ... but that does sound interesting.

I should like to commend you on being knowledgable about where the best music in Canada is found ... in Eastern Canada and Quebec!

From countess: "Eh? The ex-patriate Welsh live in Patagonia (last time I looked). And that's not near Missouri either."

Actually Martyn's over in Canada right at this minute, although he's due to cross over to the States shortly. Here's a bit from his on-line 'Canadian' diary:

http://www.piperecords.co.uk/news/diary.asp

And he's doing the 'Witness' tour with Show of Hands in the autumn...can't wait for that, they all 'spark' off each other brilliantly!

Show of Hands I did get to see on one of their trips over here, GREAT Band, pity there was a poor turnout for them at Harbourfront in Toronto for a "FREE" gig. They were great! (probably still are)
Unfortunately they don't appear to be playing in thr Toronto area this time around.

If ever you get the chance, go and see him, the passion he conveys in his live performances is palpable! Even my children 12 and 19, sit on the edges of their seats....they love his music and his sentiments...he's a man who blows apathy apart!! How we need people like him....and to see Martyn and Show of Hands together well....trust me, it's not something to be missed!
