Kelowna – A Huge Surprise!

Tonight we played at the Minstrel Cafe in Kelowna. To my very big surprise – my cousin Michelle and her hubby Dennis came on a motorcycle from Edmonton to Kelowna to see the show. That is almost 900K (over 11 hrs). Whoa! It blew my socks off. I had no idea she was coming. As I was walking past Michelle, she said “excuse me, could you look at these?” and held out some photos. I looked at her and hugged her immediately! She brought some old photos from when I was a small child and gave them to me. I couldn’t believe that they would drive that far. She said “any excuse to make a trip to Kelowna” but still!

I was thrilled!  We had a chance to chat and catch up a bit. I am still moved from the whole thing. She said that my mom had given her the link to my blog and that she had been following it. (thanks Mom!)
I have included a photo as well as a few more of the venue when we were doing afternoon sound check. It is a very popular place. There is a patio and the music is also pumped outside. The food is delicious.

I was just checking out Mike’s photos from Home County Folk Festival. The link to that is:  if you are interested. There are some amazing photos of the performers as well as some adorable photos of the kids dancing in front of the stage.

One more show and then I fly home. It has been quite a tour.
What am I going to do after this?
