The Allaire Show feat. Ashley Newall Nov. 12, 3pm

Looking for a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon? Want to get out of the cold and go somewhere cozy & warm? Then c'mon over to Quinn's Pub for The Allaire Show featuring little old me!
I'm thrilled to be joining John Allaire onstage at long last - I'll be playing some songs, he'll be playing some songs, and then we'll be playing some songs together.

The show goes from 3-5pm and there's no cover. Quinn's is located in Old Ottawa South (next to the historic Mayfair Theatre), at 1070 Bank Street. Hope to see you there!

"Out of Ottawa" Compilation CD Release, Sept. 8th

I'll be performing at this show releasing an Ottawa indie compilation CD by 613 Records. I'm thrilled to be on this CD alongside so many awesome Ottawa bands that I'm such a big fan of. Produced by James Brummel and mastered @ Gallery Studios with Dean Watson, this is a CD with an arc and a purpose -it's not merely a bunch of random tunes strung together. Come out and see what all the hullabaloo is about!

Neil Young Multiple Sclerosis Benefit Concert

@ Raw Sugar (Ottawa) Fri., Jan. 14 I'll be sharing the stage with some luminary local Ottawa talent, hosted by the divine L. Poushinsky and also featuring Shannon Rose, Jonathan Laurie-Beaumont and Brendan Allistone, plus sidemen from the Dusty Drifters and the Jesse Green Band. This is an annual series: last year we paid homage to Bob Dylan and it was an awesome show. Neil Young was basically my guitar teacher via his records, and I know more of his songs than anyone else's (they lend themselves so perfectly to solo acoustic performance, obviously), so this one's right in my wheelhouse, as his songs are a musical home base to many acoustic players. It's going to be a fun night of all the hits delivered with a twist!
