  • Shows with Christine Fellows in November!

  • My partner Christine Fellows has a beautiful new record coming out November 16. You can order vinyl here. Digital will be over here.

    We will be playing some shows in Ontario and Manitoba together this month, accompanied by our friends Jason Tait (drums) and Alex McMaster (cello).

    My pal Craig Finn and I covered a tune by the great Gillian Welch, which is on this very excellent and timely comp. All proceeds support RAICES (Refugee & Immigrant Center for Education & Legal Services). They provide free and low-cost legal services to under-served immigrant children, families, and refugees in Texas.

    I have a split 7-inch with the kind and talented Kevin Devine coming out on November 30th, which you can order here. I cover one of my favourite Christine songs, Saturday Night on Utopia Parkway.

  • John will be heading to Ontario and Quebec and Michigan to play some house concerts in October. Dates and Ticket Links here.

    If you are attending one of these shows and would like to request a song, please feel free to send John a postcard:
