Homeroutes Tour Diary - Day 6




This house concert in Inglis, Manitoba was in a living room as big as a lot of clubs in Toronto, with a crowd that was probably more than I usually draw in town.  When you play in farm country, you live and die by the rain. If it rains you get a crowd. If it's going to rain the next day, nobody comes because they're working late in the fields.  If it rained the day before, they'll come because the fields are too wet to work.  One of our attendees at the previous show was a bona fide Wika and we should have take her along for the rest of the tour so we could manage the weather a little better.
