A new original song!
"In the airline travel chaos post-covid my guitar failed to arrive - along with the baggage of about 100 other people on the same plane. A harrowing experience, but the airline compensated me fairly AND returned the guitar. Watching videos of luggage stranded all over the world in December 2022, I thought, "this story has to be told!" - Carol
We're excited to present our new video, I'm at Your Door, building on the original song written by Carol and recorded by Lucid Diversity. Brian and Rick are the stars, while Arte makes a cameo appearance.
We love this original song with a Latin flavour, now professionally mixed by Steve Rokosh. Imagine yourself sitting in the café. Live the drama!
Brian Howe grew up in Saint John, NB. He’s been a miner, a bar musician, an oil worker, computer trainer, and most recently, a musician once again. He’s lived in Lynn Lake and Churchill, MB, Saint John, NB, Fort McMurray and now Calgary.
Carol Bloor grew up in Saint John, NB, and Kingston, ON, playing classical guitar before coming to Calgary in 1979. Music went on hold to pursue a career. She’s been a geologist, an engineer, a banker, a dealmaker and now, once again, a musician.
A Gemini, born in the Year of the Tiger, Rick Orr was born in Wiarton, ON, and has sung, played, and followed music most of his life. After learning mostly by ear, he's played in rock bands, swing bands, country bands and switched to playing bass for his Mount Royal University friends and the Bluegrass folks. He also plays Celtic music with “Sugar in the Fridge”.
We play all kinds of acoustic music: folk, country, celtic, bluegrass, traditional, blues, rock and pop.
Dave Bradt enjoyed years of playing 3-finger and clawhammer banjo, then became a Dobro, enthusiast. Dave's latest love is the bass guitar. He also hosts a weekly radio show called Dave's Faves on CKOL in Campbellford, ON.
Brian Howe started playing guitar after hearing the Kingston Trio and got hooked on folk music. In the late 1960’s he played in a professional group out of Winnipeg called Maple Sugar. Now Brian just plays for the love of it.
Brad Tomlinson first picked up the guitar at age 46 and now has G.A.S. (Guitar Acquisition Syndrome) with a few mandolins and other instruments also creeping into the house.
Carol Bloor is a flatpicker and fingerstyle guitarist mining the wealth of folk and bluegrass from the 1960s forward.
Suzi Martin joins us this year. A singer/songwriter and drummer since junior high school, she brings iconic beats to our favourite songs.
Together, we are Lucid Diversity.
