Happy SUMMER Everyone !

YEAH my favourite time of year has arrived and I'm sooo happy to be able to sit out on my back deck having my morning coffee and listening to the birds. Our spring was a bit late this year so I seem to have spring flowers blooming along with summer ones. I had some interesting birds drop by this spring such as a summer tanager which is a small red bird that reminds me of a cardinal but not as big. There were also some indigo buntings which I first thought were bluebirds and some grosbeaks which I don't see very often. As usual its great to have my hummingbirds return and the baltimore orioles who have figured out how to get food out of the Hummingbird feeder...entertaining to watch. The ducks have left the pond now and are busy training their younguns. Speaking of younguns, my new Mrs. Raccy had hers late, in June as a matter of fact. Raccoons usually have their young in February/March. I also have a new Bambi running around. He is also very entertaining as he loves to run back and forth across the back lawn at full speed...mamma has a hard time keeping up. All in all Poplars is thriving.

Musically speaking my new duo "The Honey's" has had a great start. We had a fabulous first performance at Acoustic Spotlight in London ,ON where the audience was very appreciative. Then in May we did two performances for the acclaimed SpringWorks Festival in Stratford, ON and in June we performed at the renowned Purple Hill Country Music Hall in Thorndale ,ON. We are really looking forward to performing at The Canterbury Folk Festival in July, one of our favourite festivals. In August we will be putting together a performance video and in September we will be on holidays. October will see us back in London, ON at the London Music Club. November will see me performing the role of June Carter in The Legend In Black Show in Conestogo, ON and finally in December The Honey's will be doing a Christmas show for a woman's group in Stratford, ON. For details on any of these shows all you have to do is visit the Appearances page on this site.

Well that's all for now and I hope all of you will have a fun filled SUMMER !
Kate
 

 



The short indie film that I acted in  in May 2014 has  been released and if you would like to see it all you have to do is click on the link below which will take you to YouTube..
This film is about a terminally ill older woman who has decided she wants to end her life on her terms and so she has asked her estranged daughter to help her do this. This film is only ten minutes long but is a very powerful piece about assisted dying which is a hot topic today in Canada.
