Carol Teal and David Joyce

I’ve known Carol Teal and David Joyce for over 10 years. We have shared stages together and enjoyed many musical gatherings together. After over a year of trying, we were able to record a session of For the Sake of the Song at the Mariposa Folk Festival. For this episode, Carol and I both played a lovely handmade guitar built by Ron Belanger. Dave played his custom guitar which as originally built for Smiley Bates.

We also discussed Carol’s work as executive director of ArtsCan Circle, a charity which provides musical instruments and musician mentors to children in remote northern communities on Laborador and in Quebec.

Artemis Chartier

Chartier and Dale Russell are the founders of the School Alliance for Student Songwriters (SASS), a group which facilitates songwriting clubs in schools and arranges songwriting showcases and contests for students in the Durham County region of Ontario and in British Columbia.

I met them in September at the launch party/brainstorming session for the Stellula Songwriting in the Schools initiative here in Simcoe County. Artemis Chartier is a high school teacher and singer-songwriter. Dale Russell was a guitar player with the Guess Who for 17 years in the 80′s and 90s. They are lovely people and wonderful songwriters. Be sure to check out the SASS website to see the wonderful things they are doing with enabling young people to tell their stories through song.
