Tim's "Home Routes" Concert, from home, April 17, 2020

I was asked to participate in a livestreaming format from a Canadian organization called "Home Routes/ Chemin Chez Nous". The date allotted to me was April 17,2020. Performers from Canada and the USA have a chance to be heard during this isolation time of the pandemic.
I played a 46 minute show with my guitar, banjo, ukulele, and mandolin.

2020 JazzFest At Sea Caribbean Cruise

My wife and I had a fun 11-day cruise on the MSC Divina as part of the JazzFest At Sea group. We left Miami on January 17 and returned on January 28, 2020.

I conducted the Banjos at Sea group each morning high up in the Galaxy Lounge, offering panoramic views while playing our music. There was free time available for me to offer lessons too.

Near the end of the cruise, I joined John Skillman's band for an hour show. Lots of fun!

We stopped in Jamaica, Panama, Honduras, Costa Rica, Mexico, and the Bahamas, before returning to Miami.

Because of the covid-19 pandemic, we might not be on any more cruises for a while, so thank goodness we all returned in time to avoid the virus.

Here some shots from this wonderful cruise...
