Hey everyone, so much has happened since we last spoke, I will have to post 2 separate write-ups today .
A few months ago, we were invited to perform two shows in Haida Gwaii (formerly know as the Queen Charlotte Islands, northern BC). I had no idea what to expect and was completely blown away. We arrived by ferry and were driven across the island to a beautiful home with no actual address or a town name. Just – a rural community. Over the next few days, we performed 2 practically sold-out shows, hiked up the Tow Hill trail through rainforest to the breathtaking lookout of the open ocean and rocky shoreline below, and made friends with our amazing hosts Elizabeth and her 9 year-old marine biology expert grandson Taimen.
Our short but poignant Haida Gwaii experience sure gave a whole new meaning to the phrase “Edge of the Earth”.
