Subject: Dan McKinnon St Albans 15th April
From: breezy
Date: 05 Apr 05 - 10:08 AM

he kicks off his tour at the Windward Club in St Albans, at the
Duke of Marlborough

"Dan McKinnon's singing and playing have been refined to a high level over the years, and his comfortable stage presence invites the audience into his insightful songs. Although reminiscent of Stan Rogers' powerful voice, Dan has his own style that people immediately warm to. His workshop performances at the Opera House illustrated his ability to smoothly integrate with other musicians on stage. Dan is one of Nova Scotia's musical treasures and his appearances will be warmly appreciated by audiences, no matter what the venue."
(Garry Woodcock, President
Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival)

He hopes to have his new CD, which has been engineered by the Stan Rogers guy.

He'll have enough to cover both Herga and St Albans without repeats, probably letchers and Ampthill and Stortfolk too

Friday 15th at the Duke in St Albans for the most laid back of all starts to his tour.

Hello Folks.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon. Just one thing to let you know: Unfortunately due to computer crashes on either end the Bishop's Stortfolk gig is not on this time around but with luck it will be when I am next over.

Off to see Archie Fisher this evening, it's a four - five hour drive, so I've gotta run.

Can't wait. Cheers,

Dan

Dan landed OK, we're back at my place and he's had his first cup of coffee. Looks spritelier than last year (the things love does for you!), and very perky despite not having slept at all last night.

The first few copies of his new album arrived hours before he set off from Halifax, and I am the fist proud owner of a copy in the UK at least. At least one song that I know you'll like on it, Breezy!

Oops, hit return too early.

This is my favourite CD of all time, but I admit I'm perhaps a wee bit biased

I love every one the songs, but This Side of the Sod, Angeline, Lovers of Our Time, Fields of Dreams and Glory, and Border River (which is by Archie Fisher, but Dan does a fabulous job. I hope Archie thinks so, too!) are the ones that I hit the 'repeat' button to most often.

I think it would be best to wait until Dan has departed first.

Thanks to the ref we have been treated to some of Dan's earlier songs.

They were even hearing one outside sainsburys in Harpenden this morning, well I was visiting the library and thought that seeing as I was out I'ld do the bis. Only an hour mind. Work beckoned.

Any way, I'm sure that in the grand scheme of things Dan's songs will permeate into our St Albans clubs long after his present visit.

the ref is very astute at gleaning songs from the cutting edge of folk.
Highly recommended performer locally,

He is resident at both the St Albans 'real' Folk clubs, Windward Fridays at the Duke then Spotlight on Sundays at the Legion

He also plays with Moses as a Duo 'Moses and the Ref'
