Brunswick House gig

Sunday, October 29, 2006

Yesterday was my first (won't be the last) trip down to the Brunswick House in Toronto Canada to listen to the Foggy Hogtown Boys standing Saturday afternoon gig. What a treat! Though there were only 2 "boys" present and accounted for, filling out the band was a terrrific guest flattop guitar player (Mark) and an equally amazing guest mandolin player (Emory). I thoroughly enjoyed the music and got a chance to say hello to Chris Quinn, the banjo player extraordinaire from the Foggy Hogtown Boys. Not only are his muscial chops exceptional, but he is a class act through and through, gracious, kind, helpful and understanding. I felt both humbled and inspired as I watched him perform with the other equally talented musicians.

Began playing guitar as a teenager 1965. Within 2 years I became a folk singer, following the styles of Lightfoot, Dylan, Peter Paul and Mary etc. and played with various small groups at university coffee houses, small clubs and fall fairs. My part time job in television became full time in 1969. I work for the CTV network in Toronto Canada. The TV biz pays the bills but my true passion is playing music. I bought my first banjo in August 2005. I quickly realized I will be learning for the rest of my days. Thanx to Grant MacNeil at the Twelfth Fret in Toronto, for all the TLC and good advice on all things banjo. I have a grown son and daughter. I dabble in computer graphics, Adobe PhotoShop and digital photography and am an ardent baseball fan.
