Canadian Songwriter Challenge 2019, and Sing Your Heart Out

April 10, 2019

Hello, Folks.

Happy spring! The ice is melting, the crocuses are blooming and I am ready to dig in the dirt, plant some seeds, walk the beach and dream about lazy summer days at Rock Barra Retreat (singing camp Aug 2, 3 & 4), but first, it’s business time…

2018 Australia Tour with Patrick

February 21, 2018

Hi, Folks.

How’s your winter going? Happily we missed the brutal cold snap in January while on tour in Australia. There’s a reason why Island musicians love Australia. In fact a few good reasons, the first being The Woodford Folk Festival. Paper Lions, Ward MacDonald, Richard Wood and Gordon Belsher, Irish Mythen, and other Islanders have played there. This year my son Patrick Bunston and I were invited and The East Pointers were back by popular demand. Patrick and I would […]
