The Newfoundland Project
As a composer, I am constantly seeking out new music and landscapes to explore. Four years ago, I boarded a flight to Newfoundland curious about the land my ancestors once lived on. Since then, I have visited Newfoundland and Labrador every summer drawn by the fascinating landscapes and a strong connection to my family’s past.
Upon returning this past summer, I took to the ocean solo hiking the East Coast Trail. I attended a concert at The Ship Pub as part of The Newfoundland Sound Symposium.
In January 2019, I returned to St. John's Nfld on a composition grant. I attended many traditional Newfie concerts and hiked the trails along the ocean.
I am returning this August / September to finish off the music before it is recorded and released in 2020.
