Close To HomeNew Single!

"The late Gord Engle was a strong advocate for hospice care. In telling his story, the family has inspired countless gifts to the Close to Home campaign, including a $6 million anonymous donation - the largest single gift to the Foundation in its history..." (St. Paul's Hospice Foundation Facebook Page)

Gord's story and his family's journey was the inspiration for "Close to Home," a song commissioned in suport of the St. Paul's Hospice Campaign. So much gratitude and respect for the Engle family, for sharing this very precious time in order to help others. May they find peace in knowing they've made a huge difference in our community.

So grateful to my talented friends who worked with me on this project:

"We are thrilled to bring you another world premiere to close out our anniversary season. Kathleen still lives on the farm, but it is becoming a challenge because of the steady advancement of Alzheimer’s. Which of the children is going to care for her? Which is going to take over the farm? Inspired by King Lear, this is a beautiful exploration of memory, family and ties to home, set in rural Saskatchewan. Featuring original music by Eileen Laverty."

Come By The Hills
Many thanks to Phyllis and all the folks at Battle River Music Society for hosting such a great festival! Greg, Jesse, and I had a great time and hope to get back to play again sometime soon. Big shout out to the volunteers and audience members who wore big smiles along with their best rain gear! We were also introduced to some great new bands, and managed to catch the sets of our favourites Lynn Miles with Keith Glass, and Jack Semple. Good times!

Mariposa Festival 2014 - such a great weekend! We were excited to reconnect with good pals Maria Dunn and Shannon Johnson, as well as meet new friends, especially The Ennis Sisters (Maureen and Karen). Loads of laughs and great music!

ChangesA definite highlight of the festival for us was a workshop paying tribute to the music of Phil Ochs. After the show, well-known WIOX (New York) radio host, Sonny Ochs (an absolute gem!) enouraged us to record our version of one of her brother's songs. What a compliment--and an honour!

Hope you enjoy Changes. (Available on iTunes and CDBABY.)

Mr. Wonderful
Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows in recent weeks. We certainly felt the love, especially at the Refinery with the awesome conga line (even Mr. Phillips!) -- and my inbox has been flooded with notes for Mr. Bean. (Please don’t encourage him.) Big hugs to those in Edmonton who braved the snowstorm and treacherous roads for some soft and sensitive ballads! We love you!

Sincere thanks to Dean McNeill for the encouragement, the invitation, and direction, Allan Gilliland for the fantastic arrangements, and the talented members of the University of Saskatchewan Jazz Ensemble for sharing your stage and playing my songs. You all rock majestically, and I am so grateful.

And thanks to YOU, for all the gentle prodding (and, occasionally, very direct instructions LOL) to get back into the studio. Your support and notes of encouragement are very much appreciated, and I’m happy to report we’ve been working on a new project, with a new CD scheduled for release in late Spring. I’ll be sure to keep you posted.

Big congratulations to Mr. Wonderful himself, Jesse Brown, who has his own Christmas CD, December, hot off the press! He’ll be playing at the Jazz Bassment on Dec. 22, 4 - 7pm. I’ll be heckling from the front row.

Wishing you and your family a peaceful, happy Christmas. xoLav

North, South, East, and West!
November is gearing up to be one of the busiest months this year! I’m off to Borden next weekend for a show and to reconnect with my good friend and fabulous musician, Kimbal Siebert. Heading south to Eastend, SK, to help celebrate the launch of Sean Virgo’s new book, Dibidalen.  

Our annual November Night of Songs and Shenanigans and Special Guests is on Nov 9 at the Refinery in Saskatoon. Then the Trio heads to Edmonton to serenade at the Blue Chair Cafe on the 10th. Good times!

On the 24th,  it will be my pleasure to be a guest performer with the U of S Jazz Ensemble, led by Dean McNeill, singing a couple of my tunes arranged for big band! (Thanks to Allan Gilliland for the awesome arrangements!)

Click on “Events” for concert details and ticket information. Thanks for your support!

Big Band and Bonding!
What a summer! On Aug 4th, I played at Farmfest in Willowbunch, SK with a great line-up of fabulous musicians, featuring the Campagne Family, Connie Kaldor, Heather Bishop, Bill Gossage, Davy Gallant, and many more.

Immediately following the festival, I headed to U of S Kenderdine Campus for a week-long, Jazz Composers’ Retreat. I am humbled by the many talented people I met there, who generously shared their ideas about composing and their passion for music. Thanks to Dean McNeill and Allan Gilliland (who composed in record time!), I sang with a Big Band for the first time ever! Amazing experience! Much more must be said about this in the LavLetters Blog, but a big shout out to all my new friends. xo

Fall kicks off with an exciting concert at the Bassment in Saskatoon. I am very pleased to be sharing the stage with Dean McTaggart, Kim Fontaine, and Greg Hargarten for a Songwriters’ Circle, Sunday, Sept. 9th, 8pm. Ticket info on the events page. It’s a busy time, but I hope you can make it out.

I hope you had time to put your feet up this summer. Thanks for checking in, and for supporting live music.
