You know the old saying: "blow your own horn".  well, sometimes you just have to do it, because nobody else does.  And if you don't indulge in a little shameless self-promotion, - nobody is going to do that either.

Had a lovely sunny summer afternoon on the weekend at a jazz party up at a northern lake - wonderful musicians, an appreciative group of people on the lawn and in boats, and I get to sing with them.  Great fun.  Here's the horn-blowing part: I got a lot of positive feedback about my singing, but one person reported to me a comment made to them, and I quote, - "Wow, she's better than so many people on the radio".

Need I say more, Jazz FM, or CBC?  Get me on your airwaves!! The people want it! Make them and me happy! But meanwhile, because I won't hold my breath for that oh-so-bourgeois and common recognition, I'll just keep on truckin' with all the great fun I get to have, and enjoy just the teensiest bit of smug satisfaction thinking about that comment.  "..better than....", you say?  Why, thanks so much for that, and i bow to all the gods of music for the joy of song.
And if you're in Carnarvon, Ontario, in Haliburton County on the weekend, come to the Rhubarb Restaurant; I'll be performing there with John Deehan on saxophone.

Some pictures:

linda kooluris-dobbs takes lovely photographs. check her website

here's what the setting was; more folks behind on the grass

and more boats

fred duligal on sax

ted roberts on guitar

rosemary galloway on bass

john macloud on trumpet

don vickery on drums

tout le bande

i think this guy fancied me, but i found him a little wooden

it's a rough life
