A Folk Hero

There aren’t too many of us who can say that we know an honest-to-goodness, real-life hero. I am one of the lucky ones who can say that I do. And he’s one of my best friends, to boot.

Jack Cole is a talented folk musician who’s tireless behind-the-scenes efforts and dedication to promoting Canadian folk music have enhanced our local folk scene so much that it’s hard to imagine what it would be like without him. And yet he remains largely unheralded. With today’s blog, and in my own humble way, I hope to do my bit to correct some of that injustice.

Let's see. I guess first and foremost I am a life wanderer on a journey of discovery and experience. Can you tell I am a child of the sixties? Along the way I have become many things ... a College Professor (now retired after 28 wonderful years), a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, a singer/songwriter, a musician, an artist, a world traveler, a fan of science fiction and history, and a student of human nature. But my greatest accomplishments are being father to two of the most amazing and accomplished young men I have ever known, and husband to the incredible and delightful woman who made that possible.
