The International Year

2009 is turning out to be quite an international year for us. In April we traveled to Vancouver BC to be a part of the Canadian Juno Awards celebrations. In May we were back in Denmark for some lovely time there.

June saw us again in Northern Ireland for a festival called FUEL. If you didn't catch it, while we were there Marc did a little impromptu performance of In The Light with Kevin Max formerly of DC Talk.

We're ending this summer with a Canadian tour. It's been a while since we've toured Canada so we are pumped to be able to play our home and native land again. This tour will bring us from Toronto to Vernon British Columbia.

In September we'll be back in Ontario for a weekend at my home church in Cambridge. I'm looking forward to that! Then in October we're returning to Western Canada for the Covenant Awards as well as a few Alberta shows.

And lastly, in November we'll be doing about a week of shows in Norway as well as maybe Ireland. We've played Norway before but it was such a short visit. Last time we were there it was for a festival called Seaside. We were in the country for no more than 12 hours. But man was it beautiful!

So yes, quite the international year for Downhere. On top of everything I mentioned above we've still been playing throughout America all year. We've even been able to hit up three camps this summer, two of which were beach camps plus 6 U.S. festivals. Can you tell we're having fun?

All that said, I hope we'll be in your area sometime soon so we can get a chance to say hi.

Glenn

I am halfway tempted to make a trip out to Cambridge... just for the challenge (and to hopefully see Kat, Rob, and Kalyn again!) May be too chicken to try, though... especially after hitting up Chicago the weekend before!

Is a passport all that's necessary to get across the border?

I am really glad that this year is going so great! I hope many more people get to hear your music and become fans. I think the Christian music fans who don't know Downhere are missing out big time! I remember when I first started listening to your band back in 2005/06, I was so amazed by you all. I try to tell people about Downhere so that they would check you guys out.

I'm so glad I went to the show on Sunday night in Kitchener because it was awesome! Wished you guys could have played longer! Loved the Rockstar song, very funny!

Sorry for the long post.
God Bless,
Tammy <><
