Hi Friends! I have been SUPER BUSY; on the horse in a full runaway. I struggle to keep up with all the electronic media at my avail.

Jamie Stone’s Lomax Project is the headline act. Please see the Facebook event for details and ticket link. There will be a NEW WEBSITE too, so, HANG IN THERE!! There is LOTS coming up!! XOXO RPS ♡

As you may have already heard, a set of flood relief shows are happening in Calgary on October 11 & 12th, 2013 for internationally-renowned local guitarist Amos Garrett. Like many people in Southern Alberta, he was greatly impacted by the floods as a resident of High River and all genres of musicians have rallied to perform for this two day event. Amos has such acclaim that there are flood relief benefits happening across the nation, with this as the biggest event.I would be very grateful if you would join the Calgary music community’s efforts to support Amos in any way possible. I will be performing on Friday, October 11th at the event.
