Hi folks! Long time no gig! I will be back with my first performance since the quaran-times on Saturday, August 1st at 3:45pm, available to stream via the Powell Street Festival Society website. This year, PSF is raising funds to create a Downtown Eastside Community Kitchen program, and they are still looking for donations – click here if you’re wanting to pitch in 🙂
I am so excited to be playing with Jason De Couto’s organ trio, featuring Dave Say on saxophone and Bernie Arai on drums. The telethon will be live streaming from 2:00-7:00pm, and our set will be from 3:45-4:15pm. If you are unable to tune in at that time, the entire stream will be archived and posted at a later date for viewing at your convenience.
In these strange times, I am very grateful to be participating in such a historic Japanese Canadian festival that nurtures the community despite our physical distance. I hope everyone is staying healthy and happy, and remembering to rock their masks this summer!
