2014.08.30 Gigging In Kirkfield, ON

Last updated: 2014-09-01 13:28:38
D'Arcy and I traveled with Andy McNeilly and Wayne Cudney to meet Brian Cober at our destination in a pretty little town called Kirkfield near Fenelon Falls Saturday. Their band was called Grand Union. This was a for private party.

Brian Cober brought a Frisbee and he and Wayne threw it around for a while.

We met some nice people and animals including two large dogs Wilson and Knox on the property where the event was held. They had some corn on the cob.

The weather was overcast so there was a decision to be made whether to play in the barn or outside on a old hay wagon. The weather started to clear up so they finally set up outside. There was some lightning in the distance during the show but no rain fell on our boys.

They had minor trouble with their equipment so they went on a little late but didn't disappoint their audience. During a break there was a man doing a tribute to Neil Young around the campfire. There was all these bales of hay for people to sit on. I had shorts so I quickly changed because it was a little picky.

We also met Karen and John, Andy's parents, and family who were kind enough to put all the band up for the night. They had three cats so I felt at home. They lived in Fenelon Falls. That night we had a jam in the back room of their beautiful big old house. We all stayed up and jammed till six in the morning.

Next morning we were served hearty breakfast for everyone prepared by John around the dining room table.

Then it was time to say our goodbyes with hopes to return.
