The rumour is true. After 50 years on stage, I am hanging up the banjo. But not without one last hurrah: a weekend of farewell concerts with my old Stringband mates, Marie-Lynn Hammond, Ben Mink, Calvin Cairns, Paul Gellman and Dinah D.

(Friday, February 16 we play Gabriola; Saturday February 17, Victoria (Sidney, actually, at the Winspear Centre); and Sunday February 18, at the WISE Hall. And that’s it.)

Why retire? I figure Sandy Koufax had it right: I want to stop at the top of my game… Well, almost at the top. And I wanted a grand going-away party which, thanks to my old comrades, musical and otherwise, it will surely be. Great musicians, new songs, old favourites and old friends — what a good way to say goodbye and thank you.

The show is in support of BROKE — Burnaby Residents Opposing the Kinder-Morgan Expansion

If you have friends who would want to know about the show, please pass this on. Thanks.

“Funny, informative and inspiring at the same time.” – Pete Seeger

“Like Gordon Lightfoot or Monique Leyrac, like Margaret Atwood or Robertson Davies, Stringband made you proud to be Canadian. They skated through the coffee houses and concert halls with the grace of Bobby Orr and the passion of Rocket Richard.” – Stuart Maclean
