Jammin with Jarvis

On Tuesday, we hosted a local musicians jam at the museum. Wes, who was here for several months last year, came and played sax. Wally Jarvis also came and sat in. He is a Renaissance musician from Michigan. Now, normally a Renaissance musician would be playing in a museum. But in this case, I don't think they would normally be playing in an "island" museum.

Anyway, it was amazing. Wally was a crazy good harmonica player. But he was even better on a 13th century wooden flute. Now, I know what you are saying. Wooden flute. Reggae music. Didn't everything sound like "Land Down Under" by Men at Work?

Yes! Exactly! It was about as cool as hearing an entire two hour concert of Land Down Under by Men at Work. Except with me singing instead of Colin Hay.

Seriously though, it was really incredible. One of the best nights I have had playing on Grand Turk. All thanks to a first person historic music interpreter. How "museum" is that!
