Happy New Year!

Howdy Rusty Fans! How’s that hang over? Rusty had a great time last year and we’re looking forward to playing a lot more shows in 2015.

Here’s some of my favorite highlights from 2014.. Last August I got to share the stage with Billy McInnis and my old friend Luther Wright at the first annual Cloggeroo Festival in Georgetown PEI. Billy was the long-time fiddler for the late great Stompin Tom Conners and it was a real treat to roll out a set of Tom’s classics to a very appreciative home-province audience (including lots of my family who live there).

Rusty and the Extra Regulars had a three month weekly gig last spring at the Princeton Pub in Vancouver, which was a blast. Such a pleasure to share the stage with my regular band of Noah Walker on wailing lead guitar and the lovely Terri Upton on upright bass. Many special guests included Carolyn Mark, Sarah MacDougall, Michel Drouin and the amazing Miss Quincy.

One of the big highlights of last year was playing the East Van Orpy at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver. What an incredible bill, including Rich Hope and His Blue Rich Rangers, The Sojourners, and John Reischman. Here’s some shots of Rusty and Extra Regulars (including Steve Taylor on drums) having a hoot in front of a crowd of 400.

2015 if going to be a great one – stay tuned for news on upcoming shows!
