Touring Green - Blog 40: Nipigon to Marathon (July 3-4)

Marathon; Sleeper Hit Of The Tour


Today's bike to Terrace Bay (where a hopeful run-in with Canada's fantastic Meligrove Band was to occur) was interrupted by a very welcomed lift to Marathon bike the local High School music teacher who knew I was biking in and was told could offer a lift into Marathon early to meet the fantastic people putting me up and putting on the show I was to play the next day.

Through a series of happy accidents, the show became the sleeper hit of the tour as performing on a grand piano in a great hall with a surprisingly huge amount of tech gear to an enthusiastic audience became the equation for such a claim.

Wonderful people and a great time; only downside was being incredibly sick during my stay.
