A Great Winter Recital!

Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. found me and my family at the Guelph Youth Music Centre in Guelph hosting my Student Recital. 23 talented students played a large variety of music (from Blues to Rock, Celtic to Classical) and entertained an audience of friends and family. I never cease to be amazed at what my students are able to pull off – the sheer beauty of music and the variety of expression and styles of this wonderful art form and “language of the soul”! Of course, the after recital reception (food and goodies) were awesome as well. Have I ever told you that music and food are the best combination … I have posted some “action” highlights of the afternoon on my flickr account. Check them out here. Thanks to Ken Hadford, Kyle and Le-Anne Dick for these great pics! I also video taped some parts to show the students in their next lesson. A big thank you to all my students and parents who made the afternoon such a success. TD

Spontaneous Music Moments in Ecuador

There were many spontaneous music moments in Ecuador that were enjoyed by all. I am glad I took my acoustic and electric violins. I am constantly amazed at how music crosses all language and cultural barriers … here is a video and some photos that captured some of the moments:

On our first day, I joined the members of east coast band, Life Support, on electric violin as we led worship at a Compassion project church in the South end of Quito – our first time performing together. It was a special moment.

With Rob and Chris from Life Support … this picture truly catches the joy of spontaneously jamming …

I would love to know what this beautiful little girl was thinking …

A cell phone taping moment – in South America? … cell phones can be purchased for less than $30 on pretty much any street corner …

Out of nowhere, a Compassion worker (tutor) produced a violin he must have purchased at a local market(an orange price tag was still stuck on the instrument!). By the looks of the instrument (a Blue Grass set-up), it had somehow made it’s way to South America from Texas … so we played together … no language barrier here …

After he asked me to tune his instrument, he found it hard to play (he had tuned his instrument in an alternate tuning not common for the violin) … so I proceeded to show him how to play a D major scale … Notice the Indian ornament hanging off the end of the scroll? It reminded me of the North American Aboriginal art we see in Canada.

Some video footage that captured the energy and fun at another Compassion project in Puertolago. Here I am jamming on a fiddle tune with Jordan (guitar), Matt (percussion) and Rob (guitar) from Life Support. Later, while we played a mic was lowered from the floor above and our music was broad-casted to the whole village. Behind the camera, other group members were playing soccer with the children, playing games and painting nails … it was an amazing, festive atmosphere of love and pure joy on the equator!

Jamming with Lynda Randle in St. John, N.B.

The concert last night in St. John, New Brunswick was lot’s of fun. No ipod surprises this time … Here is a youtube clip of my solo in “God on the Mountain” with Lynda Randle. Not the greatest quality (recorded on an old Canon A80 Digital Camera) but gives you an idea …
