Well I've been missing from the world of Blog-land for the past month, been going flat out since my last post. A great visit to Slovenia, remounting Emile's Dream in St. John's, and a week in Port Saunders with the great students there! Been busy! I'm enjoying a rare day off now at Pittman's Restaurant in Norris Point (oop - cup of tea has arrived....ahhhh tea) where I've been taking part in the Trails, Tales and Tunes Festival. This has to be my favorite festival ever. It's hard to describe if you haven't been here. It's got heart and soul and is a true community celebration, and I feel lucky for every year they invite me back. The past two weeks, what music!
(sip of tea)
So on my day off now I'm working on the next project I'm a part of - I'll be doing musical direction for the Gros Morne Summer Theatre Festival's Neddy Norris Night. This year's focus is on local songs, stories and music, and I'm really enjoying having the chance to delve deeper into the music of my home region.
I've got my camera with me so I'll try and post a video and a bit of music sometime soon to share the spring here, looking out my window I can see the Bonne Bay hills, still patched with snow, quite beautiful. Till then, take care and be well!
