As I type this, it’s the morning after our gig in a 1902 bank building in Holland, Manitoba. It had been converted into a private home and was now the region’s arts centre.
One of shows was cancelled because the host couple was breaking up. Hey, you don’t have to cancel the show just because you’re having a few personal problems! As it turns out, an uber-fan of Fraser & DeBolt came through with an alternate venue so the night is saved, and a whole new crowd will get to see Allan and Brian in full flight. I can’t say an “act” has been forged from these two weeks of continuous playing but I have been singing a lot of harmonies to old Fraser & DeBolt songs and even though singing harmony is not my strong suit, I have been having a great time exploring it and I ain’t no Daisy DeBolt but I certainly feel her channeling through me on occasion. There will be a celebration of Daisy’s life on October 6 at Free Times Café in Toronto and on that note I will pack up and hit the road.
