Sounds of Wales

22 April 2015 Uncategorized 0 Comments

This week on the KNITSONIK podcast, host (and Gwlana teacher) Felicity Ford, shares a conversation wherein we talk wool, yokes, knitting and, of course Gwlana. Our conversation is punctuated by some of the sounds Felix recorded for a collaboration of ours a few years back; a cd of essays and sounds of Wales, called A Knitter’s Manifesto. The music in the podcast is very special to me, the guitarist is none other than my son, Zach, who Felix recorded as Tonia and I prepared a family dinner. In fact, all of the sounds used in the KNITSONIK podcast are special, as they’re all the sounds around me as I prepare for the retreat. Songbirds, a nearby stream, and cooking sounds coming from my kitchen are part of the daily fabric of this beautiful corner of the world that I call home. It was really great to listen to them again.
