All Hands for GES

The project is called ALL HANDS and it's a CD of instrumental music by Gabriola musicians produced by yours truly and funded by the Gabriola Arts Council to benefit the music program at Gabriola Elementary School. Yesterday morning, GAC president Kathy Ramsey presented a cheque for $2,200 to Tom Bradbrooke, music teacher at the school, who plans to use the funds to purchase more guitars for his eager young students (sourced locally, of course!). I'd like to thank the Arts Council for their generous support of this idea, Carol Ramsay and Steve Elder for graphics and mastering on the disk and of course, all the musicians who contributed tracks:

Marc Bombois
Steve Elder
Tony Gradanti
Tim Harrison
Alison Humphries
The Kerplunks
Kim Kristiansen
Jeremy McDonald
Andre Nobles
Brad Shipley
Steve Smith
Nathan Tinkham

Locals, when you see these folks around, shake their hand.  And, if you haven't gotten a copy of the CD yet, there are still a very few available at Artworks.
