Click here to see most of my 2020 Quarantunes!

Because it has so many embedded videos, the page takes a while to load (at least with my slow connection), so I've moved it from being the first page you see. So I've moved it to earlier in the year.

Dorion Bible Camp Songs Home Recordings

Six years ago I began recording Dorion Bible Camp songs (the "card" songs). Recently with "Stay at Home", I've begun catching up.

Open Mic at Lakehead Beer: July 4/24

.

My theme was songs in a minor key played in 3rd position on harmonica (to prove to myself that I can, despite failing the previous two weeks):

Love Is Blindness (U2), Justice (Cockburn), and The Way (Scalzo).

Highlight: I succeeded.

Open Mic at Lakehead Beer: June 27/24

.

Last night I arrived late at Lakehead Beer for Open Mic (due to Cambrian Players AnnMtg). My theme was still "Day":

Ruby Tuesday (Jagger/Richards), That'll Be the Day (Holly), and another attempt at The Way (Scalzo).

Highlight: We were on the patio. Better sound and atmosphere! Lowlight: I still couldn't get the harmonica part right for The Way.

Another highlight was Cassidy taking a picture of David (Boy Roland) and me with an old-timey disposable camera. I can't show it here, because she'll have to take it to Film Factory & wait for a week.

Open Mic at Lakehead Beer: June 20/24

.

My theme was "Day":

A Hard Day's Night (Lennon/McCartney),
A Routine Day (Woloschuk), and
The Best Day of My Life (Barnett/Shelley/Sanchez/Rublin/Goodman /Accetta).
-------
Yesterday (Lennon/MCCARTNEY), and
The Way (Salzo).

Highlight: Guy from Wisconsin pictured below with my guitar, said I had a great voice. Really?
Lowlights: I forgot to capo for The Way, and so my harmonica was the wrong key.
I left my music binder behind.

Another highlight: Today a PSW at Pioneer Ridge said she'd heard my song Free Stanley at open mic a while back, and really liked it! Wow. I didn't think people were listening!
