Paul to play BC Festivals with Donne Roberts

What a summer! -Part 2.¬† The mini-tour (July 11-29) of B.C. folk festivals with African guitarist Donne Roberts¬† was filled with warm memories, both musical and personal. Everywhere we went, Donne’s “Malagasi Soul” music was very well received, and we were made to feel special by all of our hosts. From the touristy and scenic surroundings of Harrison Hot Springs to the unpoiled majestic beauty of Bella Coola, to the incredibly hospitable and accommodating folks in Prince George, our trip was fairly short but very sweet, and a good time was had by all. We also met some terrific musicians from all across this fair land including Jorge Miguel (flamenco guitarist), Bobs and Lolo (children’s entertainers), Watermelon Slim (Oklahoma), the Paperboyz (Vancouver) and Corb Lund (from my hometown of Edmonton, Alberta). I’d like to thank the other members of Donne’s band for being such a great buch of human beings to travel with: Tom Sertsis (bass), Celina Carroll (vocal and percussion), and our “heartbeat” Kwanza (percussion and MC!)

Nobody knows what next summer will bring, but this was one that will resonate with the brilliant colours normally reserved for younger years. I love my job!
