I play at the Inverary Inn Resort in Baddeck, NS usually 5 shows but as many as 10 shows per week from May-Oct 31st. It is always a fun time but last night was exceptional. I was approached by an older couple from Texas who just came to dance. They ordered water and he said he had been dancing since he was 14, growing up in a trailer court where two girls next door needed a dance partner and he had been dancing ever since. I think their names are Burt and Carolyn. They just loved dancing and I had been working on the song Uptown Funk as a one man band style- vocals/guitar/bass drum/tamborine/harmonica all at the same time. I just thought to myself, wouldn’t this make a great video and asked a waitress to record the video on my iphone. Here you go, I hope that these two make your day like they made my night.
Just Another Day
I met Randy Jones, an editor on strike at the Chronicle Herald who had a long time dream of co-writing and recording a song. His latest writing was about the strike. I knew that the Chronicle Herald had been experiencing some really tough times and had been having trouble reaching a deal for far too long. This song is dedicated to the unwavering support from Chronicle Herald workers to keep this legacy newspaper.
The song is available as a FREE download:

This song was inspired by the loss of Keith’s laptop/backup hard drive that included over 100 songs and was returned to him in Fredericton, NB. Inspired by that event then changed/compared to be about a relationship. ENJOY!

Fundraiser for IWK raising over 8k with Basinview Community School
Keith has been working on a few projects with Basinview Community School involving many East Coast artists. Under the direction of Carol Coutts and Keith Mullins, the 600 students spend the year learning the different artists songs and then back the artists in a show to raise funds for organizations in need. Jimmie Inch and Ian McInnis from Bell Aliant came and filmed the show. There were around 1200 people in attendance and over $8000 was raised for IWK mental health. Here is Keith Mullins backed by Basinview Community School. This song is called “Purpose”.
