Back to the land of the living

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

We got the best gift we could ask for -- we got our lives back.  And with our lives comes our career.

After several months of recovery from cancer surgery for Don, and several more months of not daring to plan ahead more than a few days, today we received the "all clear" -- Don is 100% cancer-free!!!

Which means, other than the obvious round of happy-dances, and one hell of a celebration later tonight, we can now get started planning tours and albums and such things that we have been unable to do since the summer.

Our first venture out will be this June -- we've already got a couple of things lined up for Nova Scotia, but will be "pestering" our presenters and fans shortly to build on that tour.  And yes, we can finally plan even further ahead -- ooh, we can be responsible little folkies and get back to the 2- and 5-year plans.

Thinking 2 and 5 years in advance again?!?!?  YAHOOOOO!!!

Brace yourselves -- The Brights are back in the land of the living.  The living and loving and dreaming.  :-)

Newer and More Improved Website

Hello everyone!

After much creating and cursing (and creatively cursing), I do believe the "new and improved" website is up and functional.

Could you lovely people please take a peek at www.thebrights.ca, and let me know if I've missed anything really stupid?  E-mail us at brights@thebrights.ca with any corrections or suggestions, if you please.

Will be doing a big booking campaign later this week, so would like to make sure everything is working properly.

Updates to Website

Hi everyone!

This is just a quick note to let you know that we have FINALLY uploaded our August photo shoot with Sam Baardman onto our website.  Check out www.thebrights.ca/photos.html to see us in all our glory.

While you're there, check out the Videos page, too -- we've got a live recording Tyler Knight of District Media and Design made of us playing with Ray Dillard at the recent DIY Weekend Retreat.

As many of you know, we're lying low over the winter.  But we'll be heading out on the road again this spring, returning to the east coast for the first time since 2009 -- looking forward to seeing some old friends and meeting new ones!
