Happy WINTER Everyone !

Wow I can't believe that I actually said that as winter is not my favourite time of year and after having an amazing fall the only thing I have to look forward to is shovelling snow which I have done too much of already. However my winter loving friends must be over joyed as it looks more like February out my window and not December which it is as I write this newsletter.

This Fall at Poplars was fabulous. The leaves were a vibrant red ,pale yellow and a rusty colour. I love this time of year as the ducks return to the pond ,mostly Mallards and it is great fun to watch them chase each other as one of the males tries to take over ownership of the pond.Bambi and his family are also very entertaining as the young ones that were born in the spring like to run races back and forth across the back lawn. I also have a new Mrs .Raccy in the garage so once again I look forward to the squealing younguns in the Spring. All in all things are good at Poplars.

Musically speaking my new duo "The Honeys" had a pretty good first year. We performed around southern Ontario at such places as Acoustic Spotlight in London ,The Springworks Festival in Stratford, The Purple Hill Country Music Hall in Thorndale, The Canterbury Folk Festival in Ingersoll and lastly The London Music Club in London. I am happy to say that we were well received and so we are now busy working on bookings for 2017.As dates are confirmed I will be posting them on The Appearances Page of this website. This winter we are putting together another show and so we won't be performing until the Spring. We are also hoping to record our first CD sometime in 2017 and will be doing a crowd funding campaign to help with this. I will keep you posted.

Well that's all for now and I hope all of you will have a FABULOUS  2017 !
Kate

 


The short indie film that I acted in  in May 2014 has  been released and if you would like to see it all you have to do is click on the link below which will take you to YouTube..
This film is about a terminally ill older woman who has decided she wants to end her life on her terms and so she has asked her estranged daughter to help her do this. This film is only ten minutes long but is a very powerful piece about assisted dying which is a hot topic today in Canada.
