Jay Gilday Songs and Stories
January 20, 2021
Songs & Stories is a series of virtual performances by music-makers sharing two songs and a story.
A vagabond turned mailman, Jay Gilday has searched for himself in the depths of Folk, blues, traditional, rock and most recently soul music. The quest continues as Jay takes his experiences as a half Dene, half Canadian Irish youth travelling the roads of Canada, the daily roller-coaster of work, family, and performance and weaves them into song. Jay’s live performance is executed with a trained voice and a passion to drive it backed up by a heavy hitting guitar, finger-style or flat-picked, your choice!
Songs &Stories is brought to you by Last Draft, a Canadian writing and creative agency.
We believe we see ourselves through one another, so by sharing narrative and personal experience, we have the opportunity for greater empathy. By bridging artist and audience, we set a stage for better understanding and more meaningful connection.
