The Folksinger’s first Blog

Early Sunday morning in Cairo, and I am just writing a few words for a first blog on the wordpress site. Some brief intro material: I am an American male, married with grown children who have flown the coop and are raising families in various parts of the world. My wife Nelle and I are retired, but keeping our hands in education projects in Cairo. Nelle tutors children from a particular family that sends them to a school where both of us used to teach English. I am now an adjunct professor (or intstructor, it’s not quite clear) of music in the Performing and Visual Arts (PVA) Department of the American University in Cairo (AUC). Adjunct here means half-time, local contract, and low pay, but lots of interesting experiences. I teach two courses: playing the guitar aid piano by ear, and intro to pop American music by genre. I also present one concert per term, where I share the stage with other musicians from Cairo, usually folk musicians from various countries.

Tuesday next, October 11 will be an “extra” performance. A special one. Hugh Corbin, an American/Barbadosian poet, artist, educator, and general wonderful person, will be reading from various poets at the AUC’s Howard Cafe, at 8 PM. Nelle and I will be with him, presenting some folksongs between the poems. Should be a great night.

I hope to develop, soon, some podcasts where any interested folk can subscribe to songs I develop and record. At present, the only website where I have my “adult” material is http://www.thefolksinger.com. A cd for children and learners of English is found at http://www.cdbaby.com/evenhouse.
