I love to improvise but I also love to sing songs that tell a story with words. Over the years I’ve performed in ensembles singing renaissance, classical and folk music. And I’ve created songs that have lyrics, sharing them through the oral tradition. Some are simple chant songs, others are traditionally folk, and a few are more complex with varied meter. When I began collaborating with groups in “Song-Catching” workshops I realized it would be helpful for folks if I scored the songs we made. Then I thought, ‘Why not set some of my own songs to music?’ So, from time to time I’ll be posting music for both my own and collaboratively created songs. If you’re interested check out the very first set: Earth Songs, with more categories to come.
