    A note from Hawksley on the Winter Bird Tour.

    tomorrow, i’m about to do something i haven’t done, in what feels like, quite a while…  pack up for a proper Canadian tour.  yesterday things around the house were tidied up, gardens tilled over (and a new one started), rain barrels turned upside down, squash picked and summer chairs packed to the back of the garage.  thanksgiving day couldn’t have been more benevolent in warmth, sun and the last glimpses of rich colour.  which gets me thinking about thanks.  when i think about packing up the band, a gathering of friends, some of who have been with me on the road since i started in the late 90s.  i’m thankful for their wit, compassion and brilliance.  and when i think about 16 years on the road, i think about the eyes and ears that have been in those audiences over the years, and thanks is just the beginning.  i’m grateful for the years of keen interest and passion for my music.  for the gentle hearts singing every word along with me.  for the patience while i splash around, genre-bending and exploring.  for taking the words to heart and for, just generally, giving me and my music, a place to belong.  i am indeed, forever thankful.  i look forward to crossing this gloriously wild country during these last hints of autumn, while we wait, together,  for the inevitable arrival of winter.  so, let’s make some soup…  and i’ll see you soon!  h.

    Warm Toes, Warm Hearts. Tour Sock Drive.

    Winter Bird Tour Sock Drive

    Hawksley Workman’s Winter Bird Tour kicked off in St. John’s this weekend and wraps nearly two months from now in Whitby, with stops in cities big and small across Canada. The Winter Bird Tour is the official Old Cheetah album release jaunt, and Hawksley will present new material with a backing band that his fans know well, including the one and only Mr. Lonely.


    Throughout the Winter Bird Tour, Hawksley is seeking to collect donations of new warm socks for the winter. Socks are typically one of the most needed items on shelters’ lists. Fans are encouraged to bring socks to the show, drop them off at the merch table, and contribute to this simple and worthy humanitarian effort. The socks will be delivered to shelters and community organizations across Canada.

    Hawksley Workman: CBC First Play Live!

    Witness the CBC First Play Live videos, a one-time performance with an ad hoc band of Canada’s untouchable virtuosos: pianist Jonathan Goldsmith, violinist Hugh Marsh and bassist George Koller. Hawksley can’t resist a supergroup, as we know, even if it’s just for a single show.

    See the extraordinary results here…
