Day 16 — Share Your Music: 30 Days, 30 Songs
The National Folk Festival is held each year in Canberra. I attend the four day festival every year and have done so for many years. The depth and breadth of talent to be seen at the festival is overwhelming. My family and I had the great fortune of seeing Australian Oud player, Joseph Tawadros, perform at a couple of festivals. Joseph is charming, very funny and a gifted musician. Naturally, we bought some of his CDs, including World Music.
Joseph plays 52 instruments on World Music, although clearly not all at once. Joseph’s incredibly talented brother, James, also plays 11 percussion instruments on the album. Joseph Tawadros has a new album out — The Bluebird, The Mystic and The Fool. I think I should buy it for my husband’s birthday. He would like that.
