TOUR OF CANADA IN SEPTEMBER
Delighted to say I shall be back in Canada in September! I’ve been asked to play at Sunshine Festival in Powell River, BC so it’s a second successive west coast tour for me. Some more gigs have been added and some still to come. Keep checking the website!
Thank you all so much for the continued support. It’s a crazy life I’ve chosen, and you all make it possible and I am forever grateful.

Best wishes,
Danjo
