This residency at the Banff Centre has been amazing. I’ve never got so much work done in a such a relatively short concentrated period of time. I’ll miss the Elk passing by, the good people I’ve met and hung out with (Dan and Daniela in Snowblink, Andy McGuire, and Graham Lessard and his beautiful family…to name a few), the hikes, the jazz jams, the international flavour, the Richard Armstrong Vocal Workshop…I could go on. Yeah yeah, the food in the cafeteria after 5.5 weeks gets to you, but it’s nothing like the 6 days of white bread and Nutella I had while visiting friends in Durban, South Africa years ago.
I’ll be closing out the residency with a duo show with my trusted companion and musical machine Kristina Koropecki (cello/musical saw/autoharp/kick drum/voice) with a show at The Club (here at the Banff Centre) on Monday, June 10th, 8pm. We’re looking forward to trying out some new material and the show will be recorded.
We’ll be back in Montreal in about 2 weeks, will finish the new album in July, and it should be coming out in October. The inside of the laboratory (Cardinal Studio):……..mucho amor….M&K.
