Video for Hockey Was Invented by a Nova Scotian

Hi folks,

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  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!

Musically yours,
