Improvisation, Ukes and NorthernVoice.ca

Published by at 7:29 am under improvisation

@speakwhen caught an image of me Friday morning when I promoted the NorthernVoice‘s Open Space — a.k.a. Moosecamp… with an improvised Uke song. My first public Uke performance. It was fitting, since later in the day Alan Levine, Rob Cottingham and I ran a session on improv. I’m still running a mile a minute with draft blog posts from the adventures of the last two months, but hey, a quick picture and a link to the audio from @felicelam will have to do for now! Nothing like jumping off the cliff of risk! (And to discover KDot does a weekly #UkeTuesday post!!) I guess this was my UkeFriday! Thank you friends and NorthernVoice!!

    It was lovely to meet & sing with you, Nancy. It’s always a pleasure to meet a fellow ukulele lover. I’ll be looking for your posts using the #ukeTuesday tags & seeing your progress! You are excellent at strumming and your strong voice complements the baritone ukulele. Keep on playing!

    I went straight to “Aloha ‘Oe”. (Which, after watching Lilo and Stitch with my kids, is now the saddest damn song in the world.)

    That was a lot of fun on Saturday. You and Alan are my new improv heroes!

    OK, now I have to learn that one, Rob!

  6. […] Northern Voice is where I always submit weird session proposals and those crazy Canadians usually say yes to me. Silly them. My supporting role for 2012 was to co-facilitate Moosecamp, the OpenSpace of NorthernVoice, with Brian Lamb. Brian asked me to make a little announcement at the start of the conference about Moosecamp. I had decided on a whim to bring my new uke, and at the last minute decided to improvise a song about Moosecamp instead of saying it. I blogged about that already. […]
