Ottawa update

Hi everyone.

I've started hanging out with the Ottawa Folk Music Society at their Spirit of Rasputin's open stage on Monday nights. This led me to enter my song Turtle Island in their posted Song Writing competition for their upcoming Gil's Hootenanny event.

I have been selected as a finalist and now get to perform it at the upcoming Ottawa Grassroots Festival.

Pretty cool really. Here's the Press Release...

    It has sensors that can detect if it's running into something, so it won't get stuck on anything like other vacuums might.
