Hello everyone, and to locals, Happy Canada Day!
I’ve been busy with initial promotion of the Monarch Trail band project www.monarchtrail.com and working on writing for the next Monarch Trail album, but I said I’m still going to update this site and I meant it, even if I missed doing a June update (sorry about that!)
Sales of Ken Baird albums appear to be on the rise again too and perhaps this is because of the promotion of “Skye”? In any case, thanks very much and welcome to those in Europe who recently bought Ken Baird albums!
This summer I expect we’ll have a new video for a song off of “Fields”. We’ve already got the footage (actually filmed last year) we just have to put it together. Improvements to this site are also on the agenda! Again, if you need to email me, please use the “contact” section on the monarch trail site as we don’t have a working one on this site right now.
I’ve also been thinking about possibly doing another Ken Baird album. I’m also thinking this might be a Ken Baird/Sue Fraser type of record. It would be a few years off from now, but at least the idea is in my head.
Yet another thing that is hopefully going to happen this summer is a reunion/celebration of the band Perpetual Angelus. It was 20 years ago this year that we released our “Echoes from the Sylvan Door” album on casssette, so we’re going to try and mark the anniversary somehow. Who knows, maybe something will come of us getting together, such as a possible release of the album on CD or even a new song?
Happy summer everyone,
