List of Performances ö
If you are interested in seeing me
perform, check out the upcoming events section. If
you would like to bring me to your area to perform,
email me at
email@example.com. Travel from Yellowknife is
expensive, so I try to get as many gigs in an area as
possible to make it worth my while. I particularly
like doing House Concerts, but also enjoy performing
instructional workshops, and concert sets at coffee
houses, clubs, and festivals.
