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 )

Well done Natalie on finishing FAWM with such quality songs !I’ve enjoyed listening to your tunes very much . Not too many bonepilers at all - some real good heartfelt songs here ! Well done !
two to go!! You've done amazing work this month. I fell off the fawm wagon 😞 but been playing gigs and making plans and I got five songs maybe some keepers so not a total loss! Hanging around for #13 & #14
So my lagging collabs are all in, whenever you feel like revisiting my queue (I recommend "Black Ice") 😀 <3
Really interesting commentary on RA, thanks! A year or so ago, I wrote a song called "White Pines Are Falling Down," a Grateful Dead-style jam song about all the white males who were getting their comeuppance--and it's only gotten more apt with time.
Hey, thank you! I wrote the words to "The Simple Kind" after listening to the track and free-associating; my mind entered the Pop Zone, where cliches lurk seductively. (It was also Valentine's Day.) I used @bogner0ne's title as an afterthought but it seemed to sum up the narrator's honest approach.
Thanks for listening and commenting on my song 'Dolce far niente '.
collabs, silly iPhone!
Hey, come back after a coupla days, as I’ll have several tunes and collars posted 😀I look forward to hearing your catalog!
no problems, hope you enjoy FAWM, looks like you're on track for 14!
Thanks for listening to my tunes and telling me stuff about them. Thanks for your tunes.
Thanks Natalie for listening to my songs and the kind words. I hope you have a great FAWM this year ! Your songs are sounding great !
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.... 😞

Looking forward to your songs! Cheers to a productive FAWM.
