The event was titled "Home made Jamz with Faye Blais"...
Jason started off the day with a few songs, joined by some of the Tribe....Willow-River, Keanu-Storm and Asia-Faith each went up on their own accord and started to play along with daddy....Talis-Rain was the photographer, along with mommy! It was just so awesome to see them up there....Willow-River also sang a couple of songs with Jason too - all unplanned and unrehearsed. To have the kids go up there and perform in front of a crowd of, I don't know, maybe 200 people, was awesome! And they say homeschooled kids can't socialise! LOL
There was of course a great line up of musicians again....just to mention a few...Avery Day and the Deng Yi Xias, D and Da Flintstones, The Stackers, Moshang, and of course Faye Blais!
Faye is an amazing Canadian singer-song writer. Her music is best described as indie/folk with hints of jazz. Her alluring vocals together with her acoustic and unique electric guitar, carry you away with the deep, soulful songs on a musical journey.
Her long awaited debut "First Tooth" was released in 2005. In early 2008 Faye completed her second full-release "Two Pieces". She has toured both Australia and New Zealand in this past year, and made a stop over in Taiwan before heading home to tour Canada.
Faye's music was beautiful, and the impromptu jam session with a few other musicians was just
great! She probably did one of the longest, but definitely the most beautiful, sound checks I have ever heard! LOL
Take a look at her website... http://www.fayeblais.com/home.html
The highlight for Willow-River was the Half Pipe skateboard ramp! They had a skateboard crew who were out there for the day strutting their stuff...and by the end of the day they were all giving Willow-River tips and advice...and of course all said he was a natural!
Asia-Faith was also on top form ~ even though she had not slept all day ~ she kept telling me she was not tired....although her eyes told a different story! LOL....Anyway, she strikes up conversations with any and all who want to listen! Our friend Colin wanted to give her NT$ 10, so he asked her what she would do to get the money...she pulled out the toy piano and began playing...so he gave her the money....a little while later while she was sitting with Colin listening to some guys playing guitar...she pulled out the NT$10 and gave it too them...Isn't that just the cutest thing???
Another great day with great people and great music!
