I'm a part-time teacher and B&B owner. High On Penguin has been a passion of mine for the last few years - especially doing it up on a rock 'n roll theme. I don't play music myself however my two sons play in bands and helped collect a lot of the music memorabilia. I have varied musical tastes - I like most forms of popular music from rock, R&B, blues, country etc. Some of my favourite artists are Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Lucinda Williams, Neil Young, Allison Moorer, Jimi Hendrix, Tift Merrit, Paul Kelly, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen, the list goes on and on ......
