« A New Recording Project for 2010 April Update: Spring and Summer Events »

March Update March 1st, 2010

Plans are moving forward for a new CD in 2010:  I hit the studio at Cheslatta Records near Pilot Mountain in Prince George a couple of weeks ago and came away with a new 18-song demo, from which we’ll choose 11 or 12 songs for the CD (whose working title is now “Light to Shine”).  Last Thursday morning I had the pleasure of chatting about Romantic poetry with Carolina de Ryk on CBC Radio’s “Daybreak North,” after which she played my rendition of Byron’s “So, we’ll go no more a roving” from the new CD.  I’ve just completed a new essay on Blake’s Songs, which will appear in the next issue of a London-based publication called eMagazine, and I’m looking forward to attending a Blake conference in Oxford in July.  Currently, I’m writing an essay on Scottish Romantic poet Thomas Campbell and co-editing a book on nineteenth-century literature and culture.  This semester my Romantic Lit students at UNBC are a really smart bunch, so life is good!
