We stumbled upon a lovely write-up of 'Dormant' from our new album 'everything is on hold' on the blog 'A Little More Vodka, A Little Less Milk.' Thanks to Steven for including us- it is a really nice surprise and much appreciated.
"Since their inception, Sandtimer has made gradual inroads in the industry, but Everything Is On Hold seems poised to awaken anyone who has yet to be exposed to them. Let’s hope so!"
UK, we are back, exactly 19h54m and 159 games of aeroplane solitaire after setting off to the Nanaimo-Vancouver ferry this morning. Ran into a bit of turbulence as we flew over the British Isles... what has been going on here
Thanks so much to the team at Ground Zero Acoustic Lounge for having us to perform on our last night in Canada- we were really grateful to the audience for a warm and enthusiastic reception and to Bill for crystal-clear sound.
Thanks in general to everyone on this tour who made the experience fun, interesting, inspiring and rewarding- everyone who hosted a performance, accommodated us, came and watched the gigs and gave us kind words of encouragement. It makes these trans-Atlantic leaps of faith both possible and rewarding and I am sure that this will not be the last such trip!
Morning in Nanaimo
Blimey... today is our last full day in Canada. We have just one more gig tonight and then we will be making our way back by ferry to Vancouver and flying off into the sunrise. It has been a really epic tour.
Thanks to the Ghostly Hounds and The Vault Cafe for a great night last night. Tonight we are excited to return to Ground Zero Acoustic Lounge in Parksville. We will be going all in for this final gig!
Thanks so much to all the volunteers, performers and audience last night at VFMS Victoria Folk Music Society- we loved playing for you and hearing music by some other really talented performers. It was a really unique experience for us.
That was the 7th gig in a row for us on this tour, so we are now taking a trip to Tofino on the west coast for a few days. Our next shows are Thursday 12th at The Vault Cafe in Nanaimo with Ghostly Hounds and Friday 13th at Ground Zero Acoustic Lounge in Parksville.
Well, there is a first time for everything- and this was the first time we've had our bandname appear on a Canadian billboard!
Thanks so much to Jen, Jane and Larry and the whole team at Carlin Hall Community Association in Tappen BC for a wonderful reception last night- we were honoured to join you to help fundraise for the building and to play some of our music for you. We have some photos and videos of the performance which we'll be sharing with you soon!
Thanks so much to Hazel, Grant and The Dream Cafe Penticton team for hosting last night's performance- what a fantastic turnout and warm reception! We feel continually very lucky on this tour.
The weather is lovelé, off to do some lake swimming today followed by a gig tonight at Carlin Hall Community Association in Tappen, BC where we'll be starting at 7pm. Should be a fun night!
Thanks so much to Larry and the team at @horsethiefpub for a really fun evening last night. We hope to swing by again in the not too distant future!
Today we have an epic drive from Radium to Revelstoke, followed by an epic night at @lastdroppub where we will be performing from 7 to 10.

Thanks so much to the whole team at Kimberley Arts Council - Centre 64 for hosting our performance yesterday and to the Kimberley audience for a really positive and enthusiastic reception. We could not have asked for a better start to our third Canadian tour!
Next show is tomorrow for Live Music Mondays at Horsethief Creek Pub & Eatery in Radium Hot Springs
