Cambridge Bay Jam Session

Checked out a local jam session that was going on in town last week. There's a lot of talented musicians here. And of all ages!

It was one of those laid back jam sessions where you just show up with your instrument, pull up a chair, figure out what key everyone is playing in, and join in.

It was the most fun I've had in a long time. While kids ran around, the women danced, and everyone sang. We sang traditional songs, hymns, Christmas carols, and even the ABCs.

In other news, the northern magazine Arctic & Beyond recently published my story "The Mercy of the Loon". You can read it here (flip to page 46).
