Recording with cello

On Tuesday, India Gailey and I headed to Wolfville to record Lucas Oickle's beautiful piece A Foreigner Walks Between Towering Chords Hundreds of Years Old, written for India. Ken Shorley recorded us in his beautiful studio. Look out for this piece on India's upcoming solo EP!

Deep Sea Conundrum in Halifax

Last night was the third and final show (for now) of Deep Sea Conundrum. It took place at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in the small craft gallery, where we were surrounded by old wooden boats. There were some great characters among the kids in the audience and the show was more rowdy and participatory than the last two. Jack's Inner Space volunteers had made goody bags to give out to the kids along with the colouring books, and there was a fun reception afterwards.The Maritime Museum were excellent hosts! I had such a good time working with this fantastic DSC creative team.

Better Together Harp Workshops

This weekend, 15 or so harpists got together in Bedford for some workshops organized by Anne Crosby Gaudet. It was great to catch up with everyone and to have a chance to all play together! Katherine Fitch Loza and I led different parts of the afternoon, which included some tips for warming up, tips for sight reading, learning a tune, and a little bit of improvisation at the end.
