Tales from the road

FREX

September 22nd, 2011 by Katherine Moller

This was my second year playing at the FREX. Last year I received a call asking if I would accompany the Bonnie Kilburn Dancers during the stage shows. I had a lot of fun and was delighted to get the call again this year. During the week we did 11 shows in 6 days. Last [...]

Last night in Montreal

May 15th, 2011 by Katherine Moller

Today was our last full day in Montreal as tomorrow we hit the road and head back to Fredericton. This was the day that we went shopping, much to the delight of many of the students. Luckily for me, a group wanted to go to Archambault, a fabulous music store, so I got to take [...]

We are still all here!

May 14th, 2011 by Katherine Moller

As mentioned yesterday, I know live in the country. That fact was emphasized to me last night as I lay in bed trying to fall asleep. Even though I used to live in a basement apartment in the McGill ghetto and sleep through the partiers heading to and from St-Laurent, I am now used to [...]

Montreal, here we come!

May 13th, 2011 by Katherine Moller

I am currently on the road with my Leo Hayes High School students. We gathered at 6am this morning in order to hit the road by 6:30. That was early! I must say that I really enjoy a good band trip. I was at least as excited as the kids, especially since I went to [...]

April 16th, 2011 by Katherine Moller

Today was the day of my showcase at the ECMAs! Skip Holmes and I showed up at Murphy’s Community Centre just before 10am for our 11am showcase. I was greeted by the volunteer saying “Welcome Christine, I recognize you from your Sonicbids. There was no bio though. My name is Laura.” I replied, “Hi, my [...]

ECMA news, day 1

April 15th, 2011 by Katherine Moller

Kim and I arrived in Charlottetown at about 1pm today. We signed into our hotel and I went down to the Delta to sign in to the ECMAs. Registration was quite smooth, although I did end up with a conference pass instead of an artist pass. Right after signing in, I ran into Kathleen Gorey-McSorley, [...]
