Blogging about other Artists work that inspires me.

Gratitiude

It’s dark and winter has fallen upon us in Scotland. Shorter days and longer nights. The desire to hibernate always rises up. It’s the Bear in me. Sleep and then sleep some more. There is a lot going on in the world wherever you sit on the political or environmental spectrum. A lot. Interesting times. […]

What a summer that was!

Where to even think about beginning? It has flown by and that is always a good sign methinks. Stainsby Festival once more provided the perfect platform for a wonderful summer. Two amazing circles and a gig on the main stage with the now legendary house band, completed a fine weekend. Some time in Hebden Bridge […]

Horseshoes and Weddings

The association of horseshoes and good luck is as old as the hills: in many cultures, hanging a horseshoe over a door was thought to bring good luck to the occupants. That tradition crept into weddings, too, and the story goes that brides would carry a horseshoe on their wedding day to bring good luck […]

The Joy in Play

It really isn’t work. It’s play. Drumming. It can be serious. Very much so, but it is essentially playing. We play music…and sometimes it plays us. Since my return from Malaysia I have been playing weekly with my Glasgow group, working with pre-school children, sitting in on a wonderful traditional style Ceilidh, with songs, stories […]

Malaysia Trip

Where to begin? So much to say. A few months ago I was invited to present at the Third Asian Rhythm Faciltator’s Conference at Port Dixon, Malaysia by my good friend John J Hagedorn. I accepted readily. I was already planning to visit Kuala Lumpur and deliver an ERS Training so this was a good fit. […]

Great Feedback

I had a wonderful day today in a wee school in Leck near Kirkby Lonsdale. The sun was shining and all was well with the world and this is a stunning location for a school…just on the left of the tree in the shot below. I had a wonderful day drumming with the children and […]

Drum Trek

This July 2015, I will set off from John O’Groats in the far North West of Scotland and head South towards Lands End in Cornwall on a journey, a rhythmical odyssey I am calling Drum Trek. The aim of the trek is to fund raise for two charities, Tinto Music and Arts ( a creative […]

It’s all about the Connections

Since I returned from Malaysia and a successful ERS training I have been kept very busy with work and play. April began with a trip to Hebden Bridge to see my friend Angus and celebrate his 50th birthday. We had a ball over 3 days and lots of deep connections were deepened. I returned to […]

It’s all in the stories

I have just completed the second Expressive Rhythm Stories Training Program in Kuala Lumpur for participants to learn how to tell ERS. On the tin it says that we will enable you to take ERS into the education sector and deliver exciting and engaging ERS sessions. Throughout the program we learn the skills and techniques […]
