Speaking Gig

My fall speaking tour continues TONIGHT. Last one of the year. Here’s the venue.

This fall, I’m once again hitting the road on a series of speaking gigs at small venues, unique spots, and private homes. I call these events “salons” because they aren’t formal presentations. Instead, they’re an interactive back-and-forth discussion about music and the things that music fans want to know about.

Events usually run about two hours and feature plenty of stories, insider observations, and discussion about about various musical passions. Audiences tend to really get into the spirit of things.

The people helping to put this together is Side Door Access, a Halifax-based company run by singer-songwriter Dan Mangan. Normally, they book extra gigs for bands between shows, but the speaking thing has turned out so well that we’re doing it again.

Here’s the schedule. Click on the links for tickets. I’d love to run into you this fall.November 3: Troy’s Place (Elmvale, Ontario)

January 23: Kate’s Place (Brant, Ontario) (Ticket details TBA).

  • No tickets left for the Church of Rosie show tomorrow in St. Thomas. Drag! Couldn’t even find where the venue is.

      • Damn! I did not see this comment. I couldn’t have found the place anyway as there is no information about the Church of Rosie. Hope it was great and so sorry I missed it!

  • Mr Cross… sir! I see you have a gig in Brant, ON in January…. I’ve signed up my home ‘Peeler HQ’ I’m Brantford as a venue and would love to piggy back that show for one in Brantford…
