Blue skies overHead...

Our show at the Glen Lawrence Golf Club this Friday is being we'll head down to Joel Stone Park to catch The Whiteleys (Ken Whiteley, Jenny Whiteley Music, and more!) in concert by the waterfront.

Please check it out, pick up a copy at one of the locations in Gananoque, and catch one of their live shows if you're in the area. All proceeds from the sale of the CD go to the Gananoque Foodbank and the TLTI Foodbank #SupportLiveMusic #SupportLocalSongwriters

As we Head into August....

Had a lovely time last night doing a solo set in the picturesque town of Williamstown, just north of Cornwall, for their town social. It's a very cool step back in time for sure - met some lovely folks, and got to take my time and enjoy a scenic drive along the 1000 Islands and Long Sault Parkways. Thanks so much for having me!

It was a pretty terrific musical weekend. Tom Savage Music, Tony Silvestri, Richard Piche and Gary Barratt killed it this past Friday night at Joel Stone Park. Tom is the real deal - all original tunes, and it was great to have a night off and catch those guys! Saturday night at The Cove we helped June and Don celebrate their Golden Wedding anniversary on the patio. There were a couple of birthdays too - A lovely lovely busy night. Sunday, the weather was being its unpredictable self...but great time was had in the lounge nevertheless. THIS WEEK - a mini road trip.. FRIDAY night down Hwy 2 to Kingston at DOX Restaurant Bar & Patio , Holiday Inn Waterfront - 6 to 9pm. SATURDAY Night we head to Belleville to Capers (food is dynamite by the way!) 8-11pm, and SUNDAY we return to The Cove Country Inn to wrap up the weekend 12:30-3:30! Hope to see you along the way! In the meantime, Stay Cool and Keep Warm!

Gigs aHead!

Looking forward to some good fun this week, starting Thursday night with the Bob Robertson Trio at Pan Chancho Bakery & CafĂ© for their Backyard BBQ series. Always a good night. 

I'm especially excited for Friday night when Head over Heels and the Bob Robertson Trio will be joined by two of my favourite musicians - Danny Artuso will be sitting in and bringing some pedal steel and lead guitar magic, and my dear friend the wonderful Henry Heillig is coming up from Toronto to join in with his jazzy bass grooves. It's going to be a really fun musical mash-up at Joel Stone Park in the Town of Gananoque starting at 7:00pm. 

Sunday, Miss V and I return to The Cove Country Inn for another afternoon of music, great food, and wonderful hospitality - as V calls it; her happy place. Hope to see you somewhere along the way. In the meantime - Stay Cool, and keep warm!

Heads-UP: New Webpage!

Welcome to my brand spankin', newly revamped website. I'll try to keep it up to date as best as I can.  You can check out upcoming gigs, and also if you like what you hear at my shows, you can purchase some of my music too.  Hope to see you out on the road soon! In the meantime - here's a little bit about me and a couple of links to my other sites.

Stay Cool & Keep Warm! - Kevin


His roots are in the Maritimes (his parents and grandparents hail from Newfoundland & Cape Breton) but Kevin Head's music career was born in Ontario where he attended school and honed his musical abilities playing in folk clubs as well as in a few bands in the Halton Hills areas in the late sixties/early seventies.

After a brief stint in Montreal performing in various coffeehouses like the Yellow Door, and other folk venues, Kevin was drawn to the Maritimes where he began his full time career as a songwriter and performer. It was there he recorded his first LP "No Frills", with his band and several guest musicians. During this period Kevin toured extensively throughout the Maritimes as a solo artist, band leader and as an actor with the Neptune Theatre. 

He returned to Ontario, where he performed in many shows, festivals, acted on stage with the NAC and even hosted a local cable entertainment program. He also recorded two more full length albums/CDs of original material. His 1997 release "Hear them Calling" garnered a good deal of radio airplay, and his most recent CD was recorded with a full band, live in Gananoque and released in 2013.

Kevin always has several projects on the go.  Lately he has been performing a good deal in a duo he formed with his wife Vanessa, called "Head Over Heels”, and they recently completed a very successful cross-Canada train tour as part of VIA Rail's  “Artist On Board” program.  They are currently working on material to record for a duets CD.  Kevin also plays in the Kingston area with the “Bob Robertson Trio”, has hosted a number of Bluebird North-styled songwriter's circles with guest artists like Rick Fines, Dean Mactaggart, Lynn Myles, Russell deCarle and many more, and has been called upon to back up other performers with his sensitive acoustic and electric guitar playing.
