Steppin’ Out: Ironwood Stage and Grill

My cousin, Peter, and I shared an evening at the Ironwood Stage and Grill last evening.  Scotty Hills was the ‘headliner’ but Amber Suchy REALLY impressed me.  It’s tricky finding her material for now, but just you wait!  I wish you had all been there!  Nice though, Scotty Hills seems to really advocate for other musicians and has produced an EP (Extended Play) for Amber including six tunes.  Pete generously picked me up one of these.

A married duo, Smokekiller (John Antoniuk) and his wife, out of Saskatoon was also brought in for the second set by Scotty Hills.  They were fantastic!  It’s always so much fun to learn of new music.  That’s why I always enjoy the Calgary Folk Festival and Calgary venues like Mikey’s, Blue’s Can and the Ironwood.

Finally,  original tunes by Scotty Hills.  Nice that there was a sax, horn and great percussion.

Oh yeah, and I know this isn’t a big dealio, but this will be my 1400th post since beginning my blog.  I began writing in September of 2001.  I turned to writing as I was trying to make some sense of what had happened earlier that month.  My blog really lacks focus and I don’t have many readers, but it has given me great satisfaction to keep a record of the goings-on in my life…music, art, faith, environmental concerns, family, good food and drink…it all sits under the umbrella…MAGIC.  I’m so grateful for my life!

  1. congratulations on your 1400th Kathleen – amazing accomplishment of which you should be proud. I love your blog although I am somewhat tardy in my visits – you are both quality and quantity – keep on truckin…

    • This is proof that you read to the bottom of the post, John! Awesome! I know what you mean about not getting around to visit…I find if I become totally consumed in blogging and reading on the internet, I would get nothing done or miss experiencing the ‘real world’ out there. I DO so appreciate your visits!
