Busy Summer Schedule for 2023
June 14, 2023
It's gonna be a busy summer - full of festivals and events. I don't want to call it "Summer tour" but it sure feels like one! We'll start this Saturday, June 17th at Marko's Kitchen, free entry for my Calgary friends. Next week there's the Penticton Elvis Festival, June 22-25 - it's a competition - so.. all down to business! Sleepless days and sleepless nights!! On June 30th I'll do my first appearance at the Ponoka Stampede Parade, another free event in Ponoka AB, thanks to my friends Denita Morrow Maheden and Dave Maheden inviting me. After a short Scotland trip (where I'll do some singing too, with my friend Hilary Swann) we'll be back in action for the Canadian Bluemoon Elvis Festival in Merritt BC - July 14-16. Had so much fun last year, I can't wait to be back in Merritt!! July 28-30 I'm so excited to be back at the 15th anniversary Blue Suede Music Festival in Westlock AB - where it all started for me thanks to Trudy Taphorn putting a mic in my hands back in 2019. Mid-August there's another free event for my Calgary friends, on August 19th in Tomkins Park on 17th Ave SW. A great last minute addition is a surprise event on September 9th - oh well, it's a surprise, can't spoil it! Last but not least, a new event for me, the Angus Rock'n'Roll Festival in Angus, ON - September 16-17. Here below are the links to all the events / venues:
Make sure I'm gonna see you at least at one of these events!!!
