More info on these shows is on 2008 Tour Dates Archive]

We continue to work away on the TV show but it won't be a DVD until we do a television license and I can't predict when that will be but certainly not until later next year (2009). It may well turn into two shows. One a documentary and one a concert film. Nothing is certain yet.

There is a possibility of some (tour) dates in the Southwest US in April but nothing is yet confirmed. Stay tuned.

Bruce has just finished recording a track for an upcoming tribute CD to the Band. He did a little known Band song called Sleeping and it's done with Blue Rodeo backing him.

He also just finished recording a track for the upcoming Mississippi Sheiks tribute CD being put together by Steve Dawson (Zubot & Dawson etc.). [More info here.]

I'm not sure when either project is coming out but both tracks sound great and Bruce had a fine time doing them.

The last few shows Bruce did were all very successful and we all had a good time and felt all of the shows were good and Bruce remains in good spirits. [ More info here ]

We don't have any other shows on the schedule for now as Bruce is spending time writing etc.
