We got offered a show at the Supermarket this Saturday. Its the Matinee so 3 to 6 as usual with the amazing Grier Coppins opening up. We figured - why not? Hope you will too!
A couple of cool things coming up. First - HMHFAS is back at the Supermarket in Kensington for a Saturday Matinee 3 to 6 on November 30. We'll have some guests, some new songs and plenty of dark and ominous tunes for your listening pleasure. Speaking of pleasure - it will be a pleasure to have Grier Coppins joining us once again to open the show and joining us on some songs.
Colleen has been on tour for much of the summer with Gregory Hoskins. They are bringing their show to the Harbourfront Centre on Wednesday November 27 from 7 to 9. You can get tickets here Gregory Hoskings - Nights of Grief and Mystery Check it out, its going to be amazing.
well after a bit of a summer hiatus HMHFAS is back at the Supermarket on Saturday September 21 - the usual 3 to 6 slot. Once again we are lucky to have the Grier Coppins band doing the first set. Looking forward to seeing you all!
Excellent gig at the Supermarket on Saturday. Lots of good friends and some new faces as well. Hot market weather and cool beverages. What could be finer. Well one thing! We were joined on stage by both Brian Stiller and Grier Coppins on stage for a haunting rendition of Long Black Veil and here's the proof... (most excellent photo by our friend Dawn Morning) Stay tuned for more Swan news soon!
HMHFAS is booked to play the Saturday Matinee at the Supermarket in Kensington Market on Saturday July 6. The only thing finer than hanging out in the Market on a summer Saturday, sipping on a tasty beverage while listening to the Sad and Beautiful music of HMHFAS is if Grier Coppins gets added to mix. Wait - that's what's happening. Hope to see you there.
We just finished up recording a demo with John Borra and its sounding pretty fine! Hope to have some mixes available for your discerning ears before the end of the month - stay tuned!
had a great show at the Intersteer yesterday. Hosted by Billy Heffernan a good time was had by all! We managed to test drive at least one new song and I got to play City of New Orleans with Bill which was a treat. Thanks for all who came out. I put up some new videos on the Bio page including a brilliant performance by Colleen singing Black Crow Blues by Townes Van Zandt with the Urban Highlanders.
I'll be putting up more songs from our recent recording sessions soon, stay tuned
HMHFAS was in the studio last weekend and the rough mixes are fantastic. Great job on John Borra for capturing the sound! I put up the rough mix of the new Katie Cruel recording and we'll be working to get the others in shape to share with you asap!
Our friend Robyn took a video of us doing Jackson C Frank's - My Name is Carnival. Check it out!
Our first video!
had a great time at the Cameron last night, lots of good friends and music. Brian Stiller and Grier Coppins joined us for some songs and as an extra treat the liquor was flowing smoothly thanks to the work of Chris Dignan on the bar. We tried out a few new songs which we did passably well.
Colleen and I are going into the Studio this week to record some of our songs with our old friend John Borra at the controls. Stay tuned - we'll be posting some of the rough mixes as soon as they are ready.
Next up - The InterSteer on Roncesvalles on April 13. Thanks to all who came out to support us!
Cameron Gig coming up soon! Help us drive a stake through the heart of the weekend on Sunday night 7 to 9.
