Hi Everyone,After more than one year hiatus working at Trent U with wonderful faculty, I'm about to re-enter my old world, and return to a favourite passion-linking music to labour and social justice.Have had a very good fall so far, musically-speaking. Did three Labour Day events over two weekends-one with Kevin Cassibo. Managed to flog a few CDs and talk about next year's touring.Also a retirement for CAW Health and Safty activist, George Botic with Kevin and Bill Turner.Coming Up:National Convention of Retirees in TorontoOntario Federation of LabourLaying the groundwork for next year-my 50th of performing labour music.  




I am still fairly inexperienced as an artist as i am in my final year of uni, though i have sold bits and pieces and i thought this course would be ideal for me. I found it very rewarding and i felt i learned allot about the wider world of art and how galleries go about buying pieces. It was also really nice to meet others who were trying to make a living from their work; i definitely feel i picked up some valuable information from them. I thought the sales skills workshop proved to be effective for all who were there as it happens the majority of artists know very little about sales and marketing and i thought the training was delivered very effectively. All this for free, and practically on my doorstep was brilliant and i would recommend to anyone thinking of trying to make it as an artist. Many thanks to all who were involved
