Paul Mudcat (THE WORLD)Let us know where you are. (182* d) RE: Mudcat (THE WORLD)Let us know where you are. 05 Nov 98


Ho there....Another one from the Canadians...This time from the West Coast.

I hail from Maple Ridge, BC just outside of Vancouver, where we only have two seasons, Summer and the rainy season (the rest of the year) . We always dread this time of year because we fear that when the rain starts, it won't know when to stop!

I found Mudcat a couple of years ago and have been truly blessed by it's existence. I work as a Music Therapist in the hospital in Chilliwack BC and several Intermediate Care Homes. Most of my work therefore is with seniors who grew up on a tradition of singing. The only problem is that they know hundreds of songs we young folk have never heard before. Of course, it then becomes my job to find these songs, learn them and sing them. Thanks to Wolfgang in Germany, Frank in Newfoundland, and Gene in (where are you Gene?, I forgot!, somewhere down south!) You've been able to furnish me with some of these much desired songs and music.

I myself play piano, guitar, dulcimer, mandolin, Concertina (Wheatstone), Bodhran, Whistle, bones, and am currently learning the accordian (mostly by myself!) I would love to learn fiddle and dream about playing the Irish pipes.

For all you Brit's out there, I am still searching for some little ditty from England called (I think) The wind that blew the pump up.

ANyway, got to go to work now, happy singing and keep on picking.

Paul
