And so it begins.

Egad, what have you wrought? Giving me a blog is like giving a monkey a gun. Which reminds me of a song I meant to write.

But I digress.

Howdy, gang! Here's one of my newest songs, "Tearing My Mountain Down", as recorded by my housemate with her phone, on my back porch:

"Tearing My Mountain Down" by Brian Claflin - Porch video

It's my anti-Mountaintop Removal (and, by association, anti-Fracking) song. I've been invited to sing it on August 4 in downtown Asheville at tjhe "Mountain Moral Monday" rally:  Mountain Moral Monday August 4, 2014 

Saro Lynch will be joining me on stage, a film crew will be documenting the event and putting together a more produced music video for the studio version of the song, which I'll soon be recording with both Saro and another frequent collaborator, Ellie Grace.

Speaking of Ellie, she & I have formed a singing and songwriting partnership, and are polishing up the final touches on our debut duo CD. We aren't quite sure what to call ourselves yet, but look here soon for a link to our duo web page!

I seem to be surrounded by incredibly talented musical women in Asheville. I am also currently rehearsing with Hannah Kaminer and friends, for her first real studio recording. It's gonna be great, the songs are really shaping up.

Yes, I do sometimes collaborate with males. The very talented Nate Spencer is a fellow Kaminer band-mate, and the three of us are working towards a set of songs as a trio. Alas, my storyteller dad Willy Claflin will not be at the National Storytelling Festival this year, but rest assured I will be joining him in October of 2015.

And that's all the news that's fit to pixilate! Thanks for stopping by.

Brian

    I guess, you should stay in Asheville, because people seem to be talented there and it's good for you because you have ben wanting to be surrounded by people with so much talent. When I was a writer of https://www.resumehelpaustralia.com/resume-go-review/ , I was a newbie back then and I want to surrodon myself with people who can help me grow! Good thing that the said environment was given to me.

    this choice is actually an individual inclination, and not actually a major [url=https://backpackstrend.com/]back packs trend[/url] issue, as numerous voyagers bring an extra pack for roadtrips. Be that as it may, for those shone on traveling with as little luggage as possible, conveying two packs can be lumbering.
