I hope everyone has been enjoying their Winter! I had an amazing time at the Long Pond Classic down in Windsor, Nova Scotia a couple of weeks ago. What a fantastic event! I got to catch up with a lot of old friends and of course play hockey with Terry O’Reilly. (former Boston Bruin!)
If you haven’t seen it, there is a video for “Hockey Was Invented by a Nova Scotian” on my web site at daveparkersax.com. Actually it’s a slide show that I put together with iMovie. It uses still photos but often with the “Ken Burns effect” where it looks like the camera is moving across the photo. I was impressed, (doesn’t take a lot sometimes) and had a lot of fun trying it out.
The free mp3 download of “Hockey Was Invented by a Nova Scotian” is ending soon, (it's available on iTunes, cdBaby, Amazon etc.) I'm planning to release a new cd in the Fall and “Hockey Was Invented by a Nova Scotian” will definitely be on that release. I'll let you know when it comes out.
Jig's Up! is having a reunion March 16th and 17th at the Foubar here in Québec City. John Powers is back in town so we'll be digging up some old classics and playing a few of my newer tunes like "Hockey Was Invented by a Nova Scotian", "Blue Skies" and "Kittery, Maine". It's a double bill with The Barbaloots. Hope to see you there!
