For anyone who knows me outside of teaching, I play a number of instruments, but primarily guitar and have recently bought a new Taylor 314ce. After a short hiatus from singing and playing, I have started to take up music again and have been enjoying it to the fullest.
I listen to and play a range of folk music, but mostly in the Newfoundland, Irish, Scottish, and English traditions. This music is very much of the people and covers a range of subjects, some of which I’ve found useful in my teaching. While I used to maintain a channel on YouTube to promote these folk traditions, I have since lost the ability to access and post to it. With this in mind, I’ve created a new channel,which will pick up where the old one left off.
Though this is a part of my life separate from teaching, it does cross over from time to time, so I may periodically include some of this content on this site. The channel is somewhat bare at the moment, but I will try to add to it regularly. Feel free to visit the channel if you feel so inclined.
I’ll end this post with a video from the channel, Eric Bogle’s “And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda”. Cheers.
