Terrapin Crossroads, CFMA’s, Burke’s departure, Winter break.

Well we just finished up our last tour of the year in San Rafael at Terrapin Crossroads, where we had the esteemed pleasure of playing at the grand reopening of the Grate Room opening for Greenur (Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Jackie Greene, Jeff Chimenti & Joe Russo) and got to play a few songs with Phil Lesh.  Needless to say, a bang-up finish to an exciting year of shows.

We were recently awarded Contemporary Album of the Year for The Place I Left Behind at the 2012 Canadian Folk Music Awards in Saint John, NB.  We are honoured to be recognized with this award, and would like to thank our engineer for the album, Darren Van Niekirk, without whom, the album would not sound as good as it does.

Tonight we play our hometown show for the year at Amigos in Saskatoon, which marks not only the last show of 2012 for us, but also our last show with long-time guitarist and founding member Burke Barlow, who has decided to resign to pursue other ventures.  We are sad to see our dear friend go, but wish him the very best in the next chapter of his life.

The band will be laying low for the majority of the winter, but we will be getting back on the road in the spring.  Thanks everyone for a great year, see you in 2013!

DDW were presented Canadian Folk Music Award for Contemporary Album of the Year in November.
