    Re: Creating Community in the age of COVID-19
    We may be alone, but we're still in this together.
    Because we care about each other, we are now having to keep our distance. This profound disconnect feels particularly painful because nothing can replace the comfort of the human touch. The world sure feels upside down when what should heal and soothe us can end up harming us instead.

    Here's hoping that this note finds you, and those dear to you, well and safe. These times will be remembered for many things, including a tremendous loss of revered elders and watershed changes in how we go about our lives, now and in the "PV" time - post-vaccine. While some

    Hello, friends!

    Wow. Since last I wrote you, so much has changed.

    I played two wonderful shows the first weekend in March for gracious, beautiful music lovers, and somehow managed not to touch not a single one of them. We were a jittery bunch of humans for sure, but the music seemed a sweet balm for performers and audience alike.

    I thought I'd begin with an amusing quarantine story.

    Howdy Lubec and hope this finds you all well amidst this chaos. I’ve been doing some online concerts due to the fact that, like many, I’m not doing public gigs. This is a weekly series called In Musicorum Veritas, a term I coined meaning In Music Lies Truth. I’m posting parts 1 & 2 and you can join me live at

    Hi Folks,

    Welcome to the new-ish – getting old quickly – normal. There is still not much information regarding rescheduling shows. I’ll keep you updated as I find out. You can always look at RodPicott.com which stays updated fairly often. It is possible that shows will not resume until 2021.

    We will continue doing Rumbly Tummy Livestream at least til April 30 every Saturday at 12EST.

Hi Everyone,

Happy Easter weekend! Well, isn't this a crazy time we live in? We hope everyone is staying safe and keeping well during these uncertain times. We all need a little joy in the world right now, so we figured that we would touch base with you all to bring you some music to help lift your spirits! We want to express our sincere sadness that we had to postpone our upcoming California Tour. We greatly look forward to this tour every year - and every year it keeps growing and growing! We had to make the difficult decision, along with the venues, to postpone until further notice. We will keep you updated on new dates in the coming months! Ah, we will miss the tacos and wine as well...

While cooped up in the house, we were still able to release some music "on-the-line," as they say in Cape Breton! We were so excited to be part of the brand new YouTube series created by our Austria Booking Agency (Weltenklang) called "Club Weltenklang." This series features a fantastic line-up of artists from all over the world! Each day, a new mini-show will be released. We recorded a short 20 min video as a duo and had a great time sharing our music from the livingroom with you all! Watch our full video below. All the funds raised will be equally split amongst the participants. For more information on the series, visit Club Weltenklang - DONATE. Thanks to Hasi and Weltenklang for all their hard work organizing this series! It is so very much appreciated!

We were so thrilled to also be featured artists in the CBMIC (Cape Breton Music Industry Cooperative) "Backstage TV Series" that was filmed at the East Coast Music Awards 2019 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Thanks to Duane Nardocchio and CBMIC for all the amazing work they do to support Cape Breton artists! Watch the full video and interview below.

As for what's next, we will have to wait and see! We still have shows booked into the summer and fall months, so keep up with our socials for any and all updates on those upcoming tours! 

That's all for now! As always, keep up-to-date on all of our shows by visiting our website and by liking us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Stay safe! 

See you along the way!
