In early 2000, I upgraded the recording studio to a digital format called "PARIS"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

During the early 2000's, Richard Wood played a lot with "The Chieftains" (including Carnegie Hall!), and later in a fiddle extravaganza called "Bowfire". 

We did a few Canadian tours and festivals with Brad Fremlin, two Canadian tours (British Columbia, and Ontario) with the lovely Megan Bergeron on keys, and a show in North Carolina with Kimberley Holmes.

 

 


 

In 2002, a fearless 16 year old Cynthia MacLeod came to the Guernsey Cove studio and recorded her debut album.  It won PEI Music Awards "Album of the Year".

 

 

We first played live together on Canada Day in Charlottetown that year, then played at her ECMA showcases in Halifax and Newfoundland, and have since toured as a duo to British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, and the New England States.

 

 

Her career continues to evolve, and I love to perform with her whenever the opportunity arises.

Joined by storytelling humorist Nils Ling, we have done a show called "The Truth About Christmas" on PEI and across Canada.

A 2006 highlight was forming a quirky eclectic trio called "Saxafras" with daughter Savannah, and future son inlaw Todd MacLean

.

We perfomed over two summer seasons and recorded a great CD, my favourite that has come out of the recording studio

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also in 2006, I was part of

"Celtic Blaze", a production at the Confederation Centre of the Arts

in Charlottetown starring jaw-dropping fiddler/step-dancer

Stephanie Cadman.

Since 2008, Richard Wood & I are again performing and touring regularly as a duo.
