Friday night family show at the Citadel House in Lewisporte... And a Saturday Family Show at the Fish Fun and Folk Festival in Twillingate. These two guys are givin'er, and proving that "Adults are Crazy"!
In early June, the Bursey family moved from Lewisporte to a little town on the West Coast of Newfoundland called Cormack. It's a beautiful little farming town, just at the foot of Gros Morne National Park. Anyway, here is a picture of our neighbors. They are a little bit nosy but they don't cause much trouble...
Do you want to see the scariest sight that a touring musician could ever see?
Here it is! I arrived in Regina on Friday and after I retrieved my luggage, I realized that my guitar was nowhere to be seen. It had taken a detour.
Luckily it arrived the next day, in one piece and just in time for the family concert on Saturday night at Moose Jaw Church of God. Here's a pic after a bunch of kids joined me on stage to help me sing "Children of God".
