Tales from the road

A Weekend in Fiddle Heaven – My Trip to Ireland

July 9th, 2013 by Katherine Moller

I took a whirlwind tour to Ireland this past weekend.  I had been invited to attend the Dunfanaghy Traditional Irish Music Festival from June 28-30 at Arnolds Hotel in Dunfanghy, Ireland.  Sadly, I had gigs booked on June 27th and July 3rd here at home, so I had to take a very short trip! So, [...]

Music NB Awards

October 29th, 2012 by Katherine Moller

There is a great scene in the movie “In and Out” in which Cameron Drake (an actor) is at the academy awards. He is on the red carpet headed in and is talking to an interviewer about how he feels that artists should not be forced to compete against each other like dogs. The interviewer [...]

It’s a Small World!

June 25th, 2012 by Katherine Moller

One of the great things in life is that you never know who you are going to meet! On June 9th, my band Different Folk performed at an anniversary party in Lake George, NB. I had received an e-mail earlier this year from a woman who lives in San Antonio, Texas, who was looking for [...]

Life is a picnic!

June 8th, 2012 by Katherine Moller

Travelling with me is always an adventure! On May 26th, Kim, my mom and I headed out to Sussex, NB, so that Different Folk could do a gig. The gig went really well, and we headed back home. The drive takes about three hours, and two hours into it we heard a strange noise. It [...]

Every year for the last 9 years clinicians and participants from the US and Canada have gathered at Memorial Hall in Fredericton, NB. This [...]

ECMA Day 3

April 15th, 2012 by Katherine Moller

This was my last day at the East Coast Music Week. It was yet another great day! The morning and afternoon were spent rehearsing with Symphony NB. Today our soloists joined us throughout the day, so we rehearsed with David Myles, Chris Colepaugh, Samantha Robichaud and Matt Andersen. During our lunch break I went to [...]

ECMA Day 2

April 14th, 2012 by Katherine Moller

Today was a great day! My day started off meeting up with Paul Milner, a producer from PEI. We were originally scheduled to talk about doing a Christmas recording, but I have put that plan on the back burner for right now. We actually ended up talking about some of my plans for teaching, and [...]

ECMA Day 1

April 13th, 2012 by Katherine Moller

Well, well… Kim and I got up at 5am today. We packed up the car and hit the road early, arriving in Moncton around 8:30am. I managed to check into our hotel (although we couldn’t get access to the room right away) so Kim would have somewhere to hang out. I headed over to the [...]
