Tune in turn on take the ride!
This Woodstock Wednesday starting at 9am we feature:
Gandalf Mornington (James Morrison)
Its wonderful to hear Gandy’s original songs and his take on some traditional acoustic folk Music. Gandy (James) shares his music in a heartfelt way playing often and jamming with friends. His enthusiasm and big heart come through in his musical Musings.
Watching and listening to Gandy’s evolving style and song writing has been a treat.
Gandalf started playing guitar as a teenager after bouts with the piano and cello. He played through school and then RL induced a long hiatus in his playing. He picked the guitar back up in December 2008 and found SL for playing in January 2009.
Gandalf has taken his performance from SL to the real world. He play open mics in his area and goes to the SL live Jams most recently having been at the Nashville Jam and New England Jams.
“Music is the window into our Souls and I am opening mine to you. Catch the Magic!!”
Recently Gandy collaborated with Dusky Rose, together creating a wonderful song

Owl (owl.dragonash): What inspired you to play and sing?

Owl (owl.dragonash): What do you love about Second Life?
Winston Ackland:” I love the fingerprints of everyone who is on the grid, whether they build things, or build connections between people. here we are, from all over the world, wandering the grid, sharing experiences. though these experiences are virtual, we still share them. I love how SL makes me question what “real” is.”
