  1. I can't believe that Harpdog Brown's album "Naturally" wasn't nominated for a Juno! Boo Juno Awards!

  2. Personally I'm happy to be on here anywhere. I haven't toured east of Saskatoon, and I was only there once. It's a great big country. I plan on spending as much time as I can playing out east now so I can live up to your kind votes. I had so much fun at the MBAs. I spent much of my childhood in Ontario and Quebec and I was born In Halifax. So I'm on a mission to work my way back upstream to where I started this life.
