Welcome everybody to my website. I hope that you enjoy the videos and music and bits of interesting historical information that are here because of the historical songwriting that is a focus of mine. I love being creative, I love music and how beneficial it is in many ways, I love history and exploring the traces of the past that can be found in wilderness areas, and I love bringing all of this together in historical songwriting. Better still, I love performing sets of music that convey the interesting heritage and history of my part of the world, the Ottawa Valley. Take a look at the graphic below that maps out where my historical songwriting takes you throughout the Ottawa Valley.
I have new songs that are being recorded, and I am progressing with the recording of a second album, so visit now and again to see new material. New videos from 2022 shows are also being added to the website.
This website is also home to my folk music group NORTH RENFREW. We have a refreshingly unique sound and our goal is to share our music of festival stages. If you are a festival Artistic Director, book us! You won't regret it.
LIVE MUSIC ... livestream shows, house concerts, folk shows
I am returning to FaceBook LIVESTREAM shows over the winter, although I'm not sure how regular tese shows will be. Follow me on FaceBook and watch for show announcements.
Later in January (and throughout February and March) I will be performing throughout the Ottawa Valley with my Winter Folk Show, and my show featuring exclusively stories and songs about the history and heritage of the Ottawa Valley, Forgotten Memories of the Ottawa Valley. Watch for show announcements. Book me to perform a house concert (either show) in your home or community centre, or for your historical society or museum, to help take the chill off the long Canadian winter.
Thanks for spending time on my website, stay healthy and enjoy life!. If you enjoy my music, sign up for notifications (/contact), or send me a note of encouragement.
