I had an amazing afternoon in my home town at the 2013 Markham Village Music Festival, playing on the Epidemic Music Group Stage.

Joining me in the line up on Saturday was a host of local talents including: Harrison Caldeira, Gregory Swan, Ro Randall, Russell Jackson-Wyatt, Kayden Buxton, Jen Fiorentino, Mackenzie McRruer, Dread Eye, Jeannette, Patrons of Science, and Shaman Ayerhart.
