Time to put my money where my microphone is.
For the month of February I will be the Songwriter-In-Residence of Dawson City, Yukon.
Essentially what that means is I’ll be living in Dawson City writing songs and providing help to burgeoning local songwriters. And if I should happen to hop on a dog-pulled sled as it cruises through town during the world’s toughest sled dog race, or strike it rich mining for gold, or become the next Pierre Berton, well, so be it.
I’ve never been north of Prince George, so I’m both excited and anxious about this excursion. Got any hot tips?
I’m certain growing up in Saskatoon has prepared me for the climate, so
I’m mostly concerned about the few hours of daily sunlight. How am I
supposed to keep up my tan? I’m basically The Situation of Saskatoon—I have a reputation to maintain!
This whole scheme is sponsored by the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture and the Dawson City Music Festival. Thanks to both for giving me this opportunity!
