“ I really need to just stay home and record a new album, but this is what I love to do – be on the road and play music for people,” said Nash warming up her hands in the van after playing a 45 minute set  at the  Long John jamboree on a frozen lake in Yellowknife.

“ And I’m playing later today in a heated building at the Top Knight,” said Nash, in the middle of a three week tour with Mary Caroline which comes to the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Monday, April 7.

“It is a lot more difficult to play outside in the cold than I thought it would be. But it is so much fun,” she observed.

The duo will be touring a lot  around the Northwest Territories and the Yukon as well as Saskatchewan.

“ Mary Caroline is doing most of the driving up here, but I’m playing a lot of places I haven‘t played before,” she said adding they will be mid way through the tour when they get to Lethbridge.

“I have a whole bunch of new songs I’ve been writing and I’ll have a bunch more stories,” she said.
“ And I think Mary Caroline is writing a lot now too,” she continued.

 While she is up north, she will also be  hosting a couple songwriting workshops for students in Fort Liard.
“ I love doing that sort of thing. I’ve never help one before. But that’s how I got my start by going to these and learning about songwriting,” she continued.

Mary Caroline and Megan Nash begin their show at approximately 9:30 p.m. There is no cover.
