Heading to Saskachewan

In music on September 16, 2011 at 3:58 am

The band is setting out across the prairies to our neighbouring province of Saskatchewan this weekend. We played in Saskatoon and Regina at the beginning of the eastern leg of our tour back in the spring, and now we are returning for CFCR‘s FM-PHASIS funding drive with a show at Amigo’s alongside Shooting Guns & The Switching Yard this Saturday.

Melissa’s  hails from Prince Albert Saskatchewan, so we can happily claim our fellow prairie province as a home away from home. CFCR has been spinning our record consistently since we released it in January, it’s great to have their support. Apparently being well-regarded in Saskatoon is a big deal… if you have been following the fate of the The Sheepdogs lately.

Canada is such a big country that it can be bittersweet to meet so many great people on the road and know that it might be a while before you can make it back for another show. When relatively close to home means an eight-hour drive, you  come to really appreciate  the people who go out of their way to offer support.  This time we will be hitting up Moose Jaw on the Friday to play a show at Chillers organized by a member of  Brain Sauce; those guys drove all the way up to Regina to see us play last time we were through. We will also  be happy to see Brenda  from the all lady bluegrass band the Seahags, she lent us her floor in Saskatoon and we cooked up an epic pancake breakfast the morning after our show.  Here’s to a road well-traveled.
