The photo is from 2001 where they put us on a special stage in the round, right in the middle of the main stage crowd. I’m stoked to see my friends in Canada this summer. It’s a biggie.

February 11th was our last gig at the Bradfordville Blues Club a few weeks before the iconic club closed its doors. I brought Extra Sauce, (Brett Crook and Neal Goree) and we got pretty wild, evidenced by this video shot by Ian Weir, and edited by Mary Wharton. The audio was recorded by Walter Potter and mixed by Doug Oade.
That’s why… “I Can’t Sit Down.”
Sockeye Papillote with Herbes de Provence
Sounds highfalutin, uptown, top shelf, out of reach, $$$$, and downright French! Au contraire, mon ami. Yes it’s French; no, it’s not unattainable. This 30 minute, easy and fun recipe is hearty and healthy…and different than the normal pescatarian bill of fare. Instead of fat from frying, or piquant from hot peppers it offers flavors from fresh herbs seeping into the fish.
Filet of fish
Carrot cut into ribbons
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
If you don’t have fresh herbs, you can use the dried Herbes de Provence mix .
I used asparagus, purple carrot ribbons, zucchini, green onions, and yellow tomatoes in layers on a sheet of parchment.
Place the fish on top, spray with olive oil, and shake some salt and pepper.
Add sprigs of the fresh herbs, pressing them into the fish.
Place lemon slices on top.
Seal the parchment paper, crimping the paper all around the salmon.
Cook for 15 minutes, or when the thermometer says it’s done.
I served it with brown rice.
