"...no they can't Take away our Music."
                                                    Eric Burdon and War 

As his album title and self-description implies, Bob is from Lunenburg, NS. Back when our two countries were on speaking terms, Bob discovered CB Music and we became instant friends and he became a regular visitor/performer at the Gallery, the Puffin Room, and even a couple of appearances at the Campobello Fog Festival. Visit Bob's web site - http://bobardern.ca/ or you can go directly to his Band Camp site - https://bobardern.bandcamp.com to acquire his great CDs.

Thanks to Peter DeVeber

Here's a sketch my friend Peter DeVeber did from a video of Bob's first visit, back in 2013.

And my favorite video with a few photos I added. Being a student of WWII and having spent a bit of time at sea on destroyers and such, "Convoy" moves me deeply, and Bob captures the longing, loneliness, fear, and relief of safe harbor so well.

Jason Roach is perhaps best known as the thunderous keyboard guy with Coig, but he's an outstanding visual artist too. Have a look at Outer Strathspace Folk Art for an otherworldly mix of bird-sea-music something. I like it so much I even overlook someone's penchant for referring to various bird species as "seagull."
