Happy to be back for FAWM 2019! The songs posted here are ragged field recording kinda iPhone one-takes done at home in a cabin without electricity or running water. Maybe I’ll clean them up and take them downtown sometime .
I’ve been living in Whitehorse, Yukon since 1991. Made a full length solo record "Mayfly Days" awhile back and then i fell in love with clawhammer banjo and began to focus more on old-timey music. Collaborating with my longtime and multi-talented friend Kim Beggs resulted in the vocally-driven, old-timey duo The Blue Warblers whose two full-length recordings "Pretty Good" (2012) and Birds (2013) were nominated for Canadian Folk Music Awards.
A bit of a hiatus from recording/touring in recent years as I’ve taken to going for lengthy song- fodder walks in Spain (Camino Santiago de Compostela )

    thank you for your words about my fawm poop! You are experiencing the seclusion-urges as well? When I go out in the evenings these days it seems outrageous to me, to be leaving the cozy house into the dark wilds of winter! What am I thinking?! But almost always glad once I do the thing... xoxo fawm doesn't have emojis.... 😞
