Weekend Cove Double-"Head"er!

It's officially the first day of Summer! Hard to believe we're almost already through the month of June - but there's still lots of music ahead. This week you'll find us at The Cove on Saturday evening AND Sunday afternoon. Join us for the Cove's delicious roast beef buffet on Saturday night from 6-9pm. On Sunday, we serenade the lunch crowd from 12:30-3:30pm. Looking forward to see you there this weekend. In the meantime, Stay Cool, and Keep warm!

We'll Sing in the Sunshine....

Well Mother Nature couldn't put a damper on Father's Day at The Cove Country Inn yesterday afternoon. After a few drops, the sun came out to stay and we had an wonderful time playing for all the kind folks on the patio. Kudos to the wonderful staff who worked so hard looking after customers in the very warm weather. Kevin got a nice surprise reconnecting with an old neighbour from Kingston - thanks so much for coming up to say Hi! We got to try out a few new (to us) tunes we've been working on, met some lovely visitors AND always wonderful to see our friends The Jacksons! Thanks so much to all those who came out and spent the afternoon with us. Will post this week's gigs on Wednesday...stay cool! (pretty sure none of us will have trouble keeping warm...)

An Ode to Westport, and Dads....

We had a great night at the Glen House last week, and a splendid, steamy, summer's afternoon on the patio at the Cove this past Sunday - we also had a special guest get up and play a few tunes, a dear friend and super talented singer-songwriter, Jeanine Noyes who was visiting from Toronto. Good times.  

This week we are back at the Cove on Sunday for Father's Day - bring your dear old Dad, Uncle, Brother, Grandpa or that person who's always been like a father to you, and enjoy some tunes on the beautiful patio overlooking the water and Mr. Robert's stunning garden. Heaven on earth, in Westport, Ontario. Speaking of Westport, if you've never been there this terrific article on The Wedge blog will give you an idea of why this village is pretty special to us. Note they saved the best for last; The Cove Country Inn & the one and only Seamus Cowan  Why not check it all out for yourself this weekend and stop by and say Hi! 

See you soon and in the meantime - Stay Cool and Keep Warm

A pretty Heady weekend of tunes...

We had a busy, and amazing weekend of music- kicking it off Friday night at the beautiful Glen Lawrence Golf Club off Hwy 2 in Kingston. Owner Cheryl Ferguson loves live music and it's truly awesome that she and the Club staff continue to bring in great local performers for their Friday series in the summer - check it out.  You can also check out the video clip from our set there Friday night.  

The sun came out for the Seeley's Bay CanoeFest on Saturday, and we serenaded the participants and organizers in Centennial Park. Great job by Peggy and her team on this annual community event, and thanks for having us along!  On SUNDAY, we returned to our happy place - The Cove Country Inn in Westport, and while the weather kept us inside, we had a fabulous time playing to really engaged crowd including some newlyweds in for their wedding lunch.  Also pretty cool, was an Ontario Tourism film crew in to do a piece on The Cove for an upcoming promo on the Rideau waterway. For a few minutes we got to feel like "rockstars" while they shot a few pics and video of us performing...not nerve-wracking at all...right? 😊..Super grateful to Seamus Cowan for having us stick around for that.

Thanks to all of you who come out to our shows, come up to say Hi!, encourage and support us. We'll see you soon - in the meantime Stay Cool, and Keep Warm...

A Little Background on Head over Heels....

Welcome to our Head over Heels web page.  We discussed having a page just for our duo stuff, since Mr. Head already has a site for his solo work...Miss V was a little more reluctant, but we'll give this a try for now. 

First off...why "Head over Heels"?....Well, Kevin's last name is Head, that part's easy....and Miss V has a tense bit of a shoe addiction..👠

Kevin has been in showbiz for most of his life. He's a veteran performer, singer-songwriter and actor, and has been on stages across the country. He has performed in shows with Valdy, Charlie Major, The Rankins, Gowan, Jim Bryson, Rick Fines, Russell DeCarle, Dean Mactaggart, Terry Tufts, opened a cross-Canada tour for Chris DeBurgh, acted on stage with the late Denny Doherty, and his recordings have featured contributions from Ken Pearson ( Janis Joplin, Bruce Cockburn), Willie P Bennett, Georgette Fry and Kate McGarrigle.

That's him there on a stage in the late 60s.  Over the years he's played in numerous bands, and duos, trios and solo and ended up in the Kingston area sometime in the 1980s.

Miss V on the other hand is a bit of a late bloomer to performing.   Outside of being member of her high school band, and singing in a vocal quartet and the choir she was and still is pretty shy.  She admires a wide variety of "chick singers" having grown up listening to Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, Karen Carpenter, Linda Ronstadt, and later Ann Wilson, Shawn Colvin, Sass Jordan, Irene Cara, Patti Cathcart (Tuck & Patti) and many others.  Being a singer was a dream she never really thought would materialize into something real. She didn't actually perform publicly until she moved to Eastern Ontario a few years ago.

As fate would have it (if you believe in fate) our paths crossed in a tiny pub, in the tiny town of Gananoque about 12 years ago. 

We began performing together around 2011 with Miss V sitting in to do a song or two at first, and then as she grew more confident, she'd sing a few more and we embarked on our musical journey as a duo.....We've been having a blast ever since!!

We play regularly in Picton, Gananoque, Belleville, Brockville and Westport, Ontario.  We have also twice performed on VIA Rail as part of the Artist On Board program, playing and travelling on board "The Canadian" to Vancouver, and "The Ocean" to Halifax, and hope to do it again soon.

You can check out our gig schedule to see where we'll be playing next. Be sure to come up and say "Hi!" - we love meeting all the different folks who come out to our shows.

Next up for us, with any luck is a CD of some of our favourite duets and maybe some original tunes too....we'll see how that goes 😉 Stay Tuned!

Head over Heels for Summer!!!

We're super excited to be back at The Cove Country Inn, in Westport, Ontario this year for our summer residency on their beautiful waterside patio.  Catch us EVERY Sunday afternoon from 12:30-3:30pm and enjoy great food al fresco and some tunes from yours truly. When Mother Nature's in a bad mood, you'll find us in the lounge...Check out our poster below courtesy of Jeff Cowan with photo by our friend Suzy Lamont.
