Listening to Doc Mehl is like having Lyle Lovett in one ear...
      and Tommy Smothers in the other!

West of the 22

Highway 22 courses through the foothills of Southern Alberta. East of the 22 is mostly farm country.  But if you're West of the 22, it's ranchlands...and wanderlust. Come be part of the journey.  Available as download or physical CD, your choice!

The Book is Here! GOOD MEDICINE!




I'm proud to announce that my first book of poetry is now available, Good Medicine: Read Two Poems and Call Me in the Morning.  It's 211 pages, 95 original western-themed poems, and the artwork of over 30 western artists and photographers. "Honest, touching, and inspiring, with a healthy dose of quirkiness," says Carol Heuchan.  Click on "THE STORE" and find out more.  I can't wait to send you a copy.  Good Medicine; it's good for what ails you!

Come celebrate Canada Day under the summer Alberta skies! It's Diamond Music Fest, 9am-5pm on July 1. I'm proud to perform in my hometown celebration here in Black Diamond, prouder still to be performing as Black Diamond's newest Canadian citizen! It's a powerhouse line up, and it's free! Come sing, come dance, come eat, come celebrate. (I'm on stage at 1 pm, but stick around for a great afternoon full of music and merriment!)

The Grand Encampment Cowboy Gathering

 —  —

Grandview Park, Grand Encampment, Wyoming

I love this show! Come to Grand Encampment and enjoy this outdoor stage extravaganza. It's a campfire jam session Friday night, all day entertainment on Saturday, a Saturday evening headliner show (I'm performing at 7 pm with bassist extraordinaire Washtub Jerry), another campfire jam under the stars, and a Sunday morning pancake breakfast followed by Cowboy Church. See you there!
