March Newsletter/tim posgate

Tim Posgate March Newsletter                         www.guildwoodrecords.com

Hi everybody!
I do enjoy typing up these little newsletters because it usually means I have some things coming up that I am looking forward to doing. This one is no exception.

If you want to know what is going on this week, I can tell you that I will be playing the Telecaster at the Tranzac on Thursday night, March 9 with the Collette Savard Band. We play her songs, and rock it up pretty good. We go on around 10pm.

Saturday night March 11 I will be in Guelph performing with Andrew Downing (banjo and cello!) at the first ever Guelph Banjo Festival (sold out!)…I will be back a few weeks later…see below.

As per usual most of my time and musical energy goes into working on our band    So Long Seven. There is lots of exciting stuff going on with these guys. We are working on material for our new record that we are recording in June. Also we have a bunch of shows coming up in Toronto and out of town, including a few nice summer festival shows. (yes, summer!!)

March 31 So Long Seven is  performing in Guelph at Silence. This is fun venue and it will be our first time back in Guelph since we performed an outdoor concert at last summer’s Guelph Jazz Festival. Ticket’s are available at the door.

If you live in or near Toronto I hope you can come and hear So Long Seven on Saturday April 8 with special guest Amara Kante at Small World Music. (small soft seat theater right here in my ‘hood) You should be able to buy tickets here soon http://smallworldmusic.com/

Friday April 7 So Long Seven is performing in Hamilton at the Artword Artbar at 8pm. This is our second show at this spot. We like it there. It is a great place to hear music and enjoy a night out. Tickets at the door.

All other info www.solongseven.com

These are all good ways to keep track of us as there are a few more things that might be announced very soon.

Special note: Andrew Downing and I will also be performing in duo (banjo and cello) on Wednesday April 5, 830pm in Toronto at Sellers and Newel book store. This is our second show there. Very fun and he sells beer, wine and books. I recommend advance tickets. http://www.sellersandnewel.com/concerts.html

15 years at the YMCA

Hi folks,

I was thinking about why I love the Y this morning in the hot tub after my weekly workout.

The location for me is amazing because it is about an 8 minute brisk walk from my front door. However for others it is right on the College street car line or a short walk or run from the Ossington subway station.

I first started going to the Y so that I could have a break from taking care of my kids as I did full-time when they were little. (Julie had a solid, full time job with Teletoon back in the day) It turned out that the Y became a place where we would make friends with others who had kids the same age. Many have remained our good friends still today!

If you are thinking of cancelling your Y membership due to money issues you might want to think about all the good work they do there with your money. The YMCA runs summer camps for kids that can't afford camp, it provides memberships and programs etc. for those who can't afford to be members and more. Also, you may think you will go to the workout machine you have purchased for  the corner of your basement but somehow I doubt it will last. (it rarely does)

Plus, in the basement you don't bump into your friends, you don't get a good warmup and cool down on the the way there and the way home. Also, the more you stay home, the less you can support local cafes etc. If you don't eat at your fave cafe and coffee joint every now and again they won't be there for long. Today I went and saw my friends that run College Falafel and had one of their falafel sandwiches. I ran into my hockey pal Dana and had a great chat about our Maple Leafs while we ate together.

I often see musicians and actors at the our Y. Some of them I know and some of them I don't. Either way I like the feeling of the arts community spilling over to my "gym life."

I am inspired to go back every week mostly because it makes me a better hockey player but I have a few aches and pains from playing instruments (and hockey) and stretching those areas and finishing the morning off in the hot tub is just the right cure.

Europe Tour was amazing!

Hi friends,

I had all the intentions in the world to blog while I was in Europe. This time all I did was post on instagram. Do you check out my silly pics here?

What an amazing tour it was with Ronley Teper's Lipliners. I have to say, it is sort of false advertising calling it that as I was the only Lip from Canada to join her on this trip. We did create a really fun band vibe with lots of musicians over there including ex pats Taylor Savvy, Sly Juhas and Johnny Spence. Also played  a couple shows with hammered Dulcimer player Pit Hermans in Amsterdam.

However, our main pal and rock and roll star was Czech violinist Pavel Cingl. (don't ask me to pronounce his last name, ha!) We had so much fun with him. He was a great host while we were in the Czech Republic and drove us around through Germany too!

Here is Pavel and Ronley with our host at a fine Italian restaurant in Furth. (we played for our dinner...or at least to convince him to stay open after our show next store at Kioski record store...Thanks Fiona!!)

Every city we played in was a joy. Mostly because of the people we met as we travelled. (The 14th Century architecture helps too)

Drinking Pilsner with Sarah and Christian and all the gang in Prague was a highlight for sure. (have you tried their "milk beer?")

Biking in Utrecht Holland was a dream of mine that was conquered. Bikes rule there, and cars know how to keep their distance etc. We could learn so much from them about bikes and the value of a bike life.

Visiting my old pal Dave Szigeti in Berlin was a treat. So great to spend time with his family too!

So many stories to tell but I am looking forward already as I am performing the next couple nights at the Tranzac. Tonight with Collette Savard Band and tomorrow, reunited with all the Toronto Lipliners. Yay! (both shows start after 10pm)

Happy holidays to you all. Please take some time off. Enjoy your friends and family while you can.
