It has been a truly bittersweet summer for us here at hypo records. Due to the endo’dimitriosis monster I was only able to perform two Gemini shows in June before having to cancel the remaining dates for the summer. It was a difficult pill to swallow as “we” have yet to fully tour our latest album “Guten Tag Gemini.”
In July we lost a dear friend, fan and fellow arts advocate/journalist Ange-Aimee Woods to heart failure. Krista performed one of her favorites at the memorial “No Matter How Far” – echoing Tshala Muana’s words “We sing everything. We have nothing else.” A memorial bursary for journalism students has been created in her honor. If you would like to read more about Ange-Aimee’s work or to contribute you can do so here. She rocked every Lederhosen Lucil show she came to and was consulting on our upcoming tv series that we will be shooting a “sizzle reel” for in October.
In August I graduated from Level 1 JHUI (James Hill Ukulele Institute!) and am pursuing the second level in music pedagogy using ukulele as a teaching tool. Music is a brilliant way to connect people and I’ll be incorporating that into the upcoming tv series as well as in-person workshops. And happily, Lederhosen Lucil is coming out of the pantry to entertain KidsPop this fall! She will be rocking PopMontreal (Free outdoors KidsPop stage!) on September 20th in Montreal.
See you soon!
