Last year Daphne and I sang Canadian folk songs in our June show at the Log Drive Café, but Ranald was not able to join us. This year, Ranald will be there to sing songs from his extensive repertoire. My collection of traditional songs has grown in the past year, as well. I am very excited to have more local material, including two songs relating to a fatal log drive accident on the Mississippi River (Jim Whalen and Lost Jimmy Whalen) and a murder ballad from Napanee (The Murder of Maggie Howie). Daphne will boost the sound with her lovely voice and solid guitar playing.
I am also really excited to be in a bigger hall, so there will be room for more folks. As well, we will have the benefit of the lingering evening light as the Old Town Hall has lovely big windows. Details are below, and you can download the poster if you would like to help spread the word.
