So grateful to Folk Music Ontario for the amazing news of winning the Songs From The Heart competition in two categories! Once in the Political Song category with I AM A REFUGEE. Grateful to fellow songwriters Kevin Laliberte, Drew Birston, Rosendo León Arocha and especially Ifrah Mansour who wrote these incredible words and delivered with such passion and honesty. You can hear and see it here https://youtu.be/i3NoXyoq6D4
And also in the Instrumental Song category with another song off our Refuge album with the title track. Thanks a million to the band and John Bailey for arranging that song with me and bringing it to life, along with the incredible Colombian harp player Edmar Castaneda (Official Fan Page). You can hear it all here! http://smarturl.it/RefugeAlbum
