Happy to be back for FAWM 2021. 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 )

Thanks friend, for the comment on "Holy Man"--and for seeing the allusion to Francis of Assisi. He was the son of a rich silk merchant, and according to one story, while in the town plaza selling cloth he gave all his fine clothes to beggars, provoking his father's anger. Other legends tell of his affinity with animals and nature, and of course brother sun and sister sky.
heya, natalie. just watched "great whatever"... i feel a connection to dawson city even though i've only been there a handful of times --- maybe only 4 times --- most recently 2013. i'm scouring my brain trying to remember. good to see that you're here and making music. this is where i catch up with the whitehorse crew these days.
You chuffed me up! Merci!
I like your comment on the Quilting Bee piece so much! I shared it with the band. Can we use it as our lead quote? 😮
Thank you so much for all the kind words! Very much appreciated.
