FARMER AIN’T IN THE DELL
Check out my entertaining video about food and farming politics! We had a gas filming this around Cowichan Valley, playing with the cows and chickens with our gumboots on. Thanks to local celeb Michelle Staples for making the video!
This live video was filmed at Blue Grouse Estate Winery where I work part-time in the tasting room. This is one of the first songs I wrote and it’s on both of my albums (in different versions). Video by Dave Wallace.
