A five beat drum roll?
It is what it is
Some might say
After all
What can you expect
Along Chaleur Bay.

Expect is not quite the same as hope and artists have long ago stopped expecting anything much will happen. We know all about promises and fuzzy facts and all that silliness brought on by elections then forgotten for four years, then another four years … On and on

So will a five beat drum roll make any difference in the grand scheme of things? Possibly not. But I’m willing to try.

I guess I just might bring my bodhran to the May 11 artists meet-up and perform a series of 5-beat drum rolls. And why on earth would I do such a thing? Well that is a good question. And the answer is that I am an artist and artists do that sort of thing. It is called performance art. If other artists want to join me they are welcome to come along with their instruments.

Nothing else has managed to get us an art Centre so why not try a few five beat drum rolls?

Go to for more information on the meet-up.

  1. So, the meetup is canceled. I might yet go down to the old st.Andrew St shop with my bodhran around 1 and do a few artartartartarts on my drum … In memory of Larry Hussey who would often stop to chat with me as he was walking by. Larry was such a nice kindly gentleman. I know he’ll be greatly missed in Bathurst.
