When I’m not making art, I play accordion with a bunch of pals. The group is the most eclectic cover band you’ve ever heard, doing everything from bluegrass and murder ballads to sweet pop hits and forgotten new wave gems. Other “E” words to describe us include “energetic” and “enthusiastic”.

If you are in Toronto next Saturday, check out or band, the Sore Boozers, in front of Palmerston Market at 6 p.m. for 45 minutes of entertainment. The market is on the corner of Palmerston and Barton.

Our show is a small part of a great festival called Open Tuning. A do-it-yourself event, Open Tuning features 130 bands playing on porches, in parks, in garages and anywhere else you can think of.
