Songwriting is not a dark art

I assure you songwriting is not some mystical thing that touches only a few lucky souls.  You just gotta put pen to paper.  The more you do it, the easier it comes.  I mean take a look at this very natural, completely unstaged photo of myself writing a song.  Wow! I can't believe how non-orchestrated, spontaneous and uncontrived it is.  

Wanna take a crack at songwriting?  Then come to FAMI - The Foothills Acoustic Music Institute.  May long weekend in Bragg Creek.  Full details here.

You don't need to know Ken Blakely to help him out

All of us at sometime in our lives get dealt some shitty cards.  All we can do is hang on for dear life until the next hand.  My pal Ken Blakely got such a hand and spent much of last year at the Tom Baker Cancer Clinic.  He and his wife Erin, his kids and the community of Knee Valley are holding a fundraiser to raise some money to help offset the expenses incured from loss of work, travel to and from Calgary and all those little things that add up when you get thrown for a loop like this one.

You don't need to know Ken personally to come and support him.  He's a regular guy like you and me, just trying to treat each day as a gift, be there for his family, and appreciate the little things that this life offers.  Come help a fellow human being April 1st at the Knee Valley Community Hall.
