I am a dedicated volunteer at Shelter Valley, having worked as a floater, Access Coordinator and Public Food Coordinator. i am a proud supporter of Canadian folk/Roots music and volunteer regularly at various events, including OCFF and FAI conferences. I regularly attend shows at various venues in Toronto, Ottawa, Guelph, Cobourg and Kingston, to name a few. I try to provide support for musicians whenever I can, including driving them to or from gigs, buying their music and providing tents and other gear for camping at festivals, etc. I have recently been inspired to take up guitar, as well as the accordion(which I played as a boy). I may not ever achieve the talent I hear every day from musicians that I know and love, but playing brings me joy.
