The Virtual Coffee Shop – session 7

One of my highlights from attending the  OMEA  Interlude 2017 conference, was hearing the Six String Nation presentation by Jowi Taylor – wow, what an amazing story.

Jowi  is an award winning writer, broadcaster, creator of the Six String Nation project, recipient of Canada’s Meritorious Service Medal.  I was thrilled to meet Jowi in person at the conference, and honoured to host him at our home to record this podcast about the Six String Nation project concept, journey and future plans.

Head to the kitchen and make your favourite coffee brew and enjoy this wonderful conversation with Jowi.
