Summer’s almost here and Gordie will be heading back home to Cape Breton to visit family, play a few shows, and is hosting the 4th annual Gordie Sampson Songcamp!
Gordie flew home earlier this month to accept an Honorary Degree from Cape Breton University and played a few songs for the graduating class. You can check it out at www.cbu.ca/convocation. Also on the exciting news front, Gordie co-wrote and just produced the new single from Kree Harrison. “All Cried Out” was released last week following the last episode of American Idol where Kree was second runner-up.
Gordie’s summer dates are below. Please make special note of the Songcamp Circle. It’s a great opportunity to hear talented young songwriters – and, of course, to see Gordie! Guests will include returning campers Mo Kenney and Dylan Guthro, special guest Carmen Townsend, instructors Carleton Stone and Steven MacDougall, along with four brand new writers! Tickets are available at Doucette’s Variety and Home Hardware in Ingonish starting May 24th. For more information about the Songcamp, you can head on over to their website and read or listen to music: www.gordiesampsonsongcamp.com
