It is with real sadness and great love that we’re announcing the April 7th, 2019 gig at The Musician as Thure’s final stage appearance with Project Blackbird. After five years and two albums of shared music-making, he has decided to refocus his energies and considerable talents on other endeavours. Ming, Jon, Styx, and Jamie will continue on the path Thure has helped forge, with a new guitarist whom we’ll introduce in due course. In the meantime, we’ll reflect upon the wonderful partnership we’ve had with Thure, look forward to cheering on his next adventures, and treasure the ongoing friendship. As Semisonic said it best, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end“.

Peace and fortitude x
