is a word which I made up as a name for one of my instrumental
works on the CD. "Moor" is from the word moorish (the
Moors from Africa) and "afa" is some of the letters
from the word Africa.
musical influences are: Folk, Jazz, Blues, Pop, Flamenco, Country
and Rock etc. I like most forms of music, as long as it comes
from the heart.
like to explore different instruments, as well as different
styles, which led me to perform all the instruments on this
CD. I also couldn't afford to pay other musicians.
have helped many musicians in my travels. I ran a coffee house
in British Columbia, (the Village Green Cafe' '73 - '79), with
my late wife, Darelyn Guthrie. I also had the vision to form the
in Kaslo, B.C., which still operates today. Many of the activities at the Langham evolved out of the Village Green Cafe's art shows, live music and dance.
