Hey friends, we’re experiencing life at 100 miles per hour right now at Heartaches Central Command. We missed telling you about a whole show and we’re really sorry about that! Amanda Lynn, The Heartaches chief communications strategist, head blog writer and main DingDong is especially regretful about that.
BUT all is not lost, because we have another show to tell you about, and it’s a good one! Our friends The Blurry Pickers are coming back to play a Halloween extravaganza with us at our regular last-Friday show. We’re playing Friday, October 27th at the St. Regis Tavern. The Blurry Pickers love their progressive JamGrass, so expect a big ole party.
And please note: we are going to be easing off the monthly shows for a little while, so we can catch up with ourselves, so this might be your last chance to see us in the comfy atmosphere of the Regis for a little while. Catch us while you can, we’d love to see you!
PS. On a more serious note, Amanda Lynn appeared today on CBC London Morning, on CBC Radio One. The topic was the #metoo campaign. It was an important topic, and you might be interested in listening back here.
Thanks to host Rebecca Zandbergen for snapping this photo of Amanda Lynn with fellow panelists Jasmine Jasani and Romayne Fullerton-Smith.
Wow that was a weekend to remember, we played every day of the weekend! Thanks to our pal Thom Coombes for setting up a super fun night of music and antics at The Soho. And thanks to Western Fair for including us in the I Love Local programming! Sunday saw all four Heartaches on the stage in varying combinations. Especially, though, thanks to Shaman and Kate for having us play their wedding in Bayfield! It was a great honour to play the music as you walked down the aisle, and a great joy to help you celebrate all afternoon!
This weekend, us Heartaches are hitting the road again, making our first full-band appearance in Toronto! Come on down the 401 to join us at the Local Pub on Roncesvalles Ave. for a friendly room, great food and a relaxed afternoon show. And if you do come down, make sure to follow us over to the Dakota Tavern where our hometown heroes The Rizdales are holding court that night!
It’s an all-good-news story for country music from the Forest City, and we’d be much obliged if you’d help us invite Toronto folks to our matinee! Here’s a link with the details. We’re hoping to make it back again in Fall, so we’re looking to make some new friends in The Big Smoke.
Hey Heartaches friends! It was great to see some of you last Friday at Western Fair – Amanda Lynn and Uncle Dan are doing it all again this weekend (see below for more information.).
We’ve got a big weekend coming up, playing a wedding for our dear friend Shaman in Bayfield! Before our Bayfield debut, though, you can see Amanda Lynn play with Newfoundland songwriter Thom Coombes at The Soho on Friday night. (You might remember that Thom was here in June at joined us at the St. Regis for some fun musical antics ). It’s sure to be a super fun night – find out more about the event here. You can check out Thom’s bandcamp to hear his songs.
We sure had fun kicking off the I Love Local stage at Western Fair! So much so that Amanda Lynn and Uncle Dan are back this Sunday September 17th playing back-to-back solo sets! Music starts at 11:30am and goes until 4pm so you can see the fair AND us! More details are here.
