in Music video, News

My partner Lewis and I wrote a new song for our upcoming performance at Banjofest 2019 in Guelph!

It’s a live video capture of a song about memory loss, aging, and the challenge of maintaining our connections to family and friends. My heart goes out to you if it’s something you’re dealing with in your life.

We’re performing on Sunday, March 10th at 2pm. Details and tickets available at Eventbrite

Feel free to share this video or send your comments on Facebook. I would LOVE that!
