May I present you , Garth Lannock.
Garth has been in the music scene for over 34 years.
Garth toured all over Europe, as a professional drummer/singer in several bands.
And now one of the hardest working professional musician in second life.
His repertoire is extensive and so is his song list. Nothing this man can't sing or play on his guitar.
Partly because of his powerful voice and his rapidly following songs, his shows are very lively.
His slogan is, no patter but music. Come and see for yourself.
He is an experienced and motivated singer.
Garth's baritone voice sets the tone, but wow, what a musical diversity, you are literally pulled from sphere to sphere.
Sit down or dance, listen, and enjoy your moment with Garth, when he is singing the ballads straight from his heart.

Since we are in a virtual world, we cannot truly see one’s eyes...we have to believe in the words spoken. Sometimes those words are elaborated upon embellishing them to make them sound so full of promise. The person behind the Avatar can say things with morals or they can deceive and it’s hard to ascertain what’s real. I am always one to want to believe in what I am being told. To not doubt a person, but to believe in their words. Without having eyes to look into when told certain things that makes Virtual Life precarious to say the least. When you tell someone, something, make it real. Be honest. Or don't say it at all. There really isn't any honour in lying, cheating or stealing. Its destructive and hurtful in Real Life as well as Virtual Life.
Let's keep it real :)

It is winter evening at Tig's Free Home rentals, so bundle up. On the sims, there are two separate villages with free houses to let out.
One is down on land, which is the Clanlands for her clan, Failte Touta. Vampire clan....RP only.
The castle is there at the end of a lovely treed path.
All are welcome to come to the castle as well.
In the castle, there is a greedy game, and a ballroom, as well as rooms for those who wish to live in the castle with the family.
The main room of the castle is the ballroom with a lovely reflective floor. There are balls held there with all welcome.
The land is made to resemble Scotland, Medieval times.
The seasons change on the land, right now being the dead of winter
The houses are quaint and roomy.
You can skate on the water right now, and swim in the nicer weather.
Access to all the land is fine for anyone.
In the sky, the second village is connected to the Marketplace.
There are free stores for creators there as well.
There is a smaller pub there as well, which hopefully, we will have Open Mic nights there soon.
The village there has the free houses as well, with greedy in the little pub.
If you are looking for a permanent home, or just a place to stay while you decide if you will buy land for yourself, this is the place to come!
The only rules of land are, keep the outside of where you live to be in keeping with the theme of the land.
Respect all, and don't bother neighbours with camming or otherwise disrespecting them.
We do not enter anyone's room or home without permission from the owner. Nor do we cam inside.
Just like in RL we treat our neighbours as our friends. Contact Tigerkitti Eberdene if you are interested in a free rental.

I had first learned of elders, Hairy Thor, Amaranthim Talon, and Bec Jigsaw's, Bridgemere, when I found the Great Canadian Grid’s forum. Reading a post by Amara as she is fondly called by Hairy, about her Art Exhibit "Reflections". She explained in the post this would be a place to feature all the artists of the Great Canadian Grid. I loved that concept, they were opening their exhibit to the whole community of GCG. I loved it so much that I wrote an article about it (Inworld Edition September 2016, "Reflections of Bridgemere"), then placed art there. I told most on my friends list to please consider placing art there, many did.
Over the months Amara invited me to the Bridgemere monthly meetings, which I had hoped to attend because their concept was something that interested me and I wanted to learn more about it. Finally able to attend a meeting, recently, Hairy filled me in on the backstory.
Basically, it evolved very much like the mainland in Second Life. Their concept was to have residents of the grid place their region in a diverse community of like minded folks who wanted waterways to sail, and friends to have coffee with in the mornings. It evolved into a wonderful community of friends.
It was at this meeting that I realized, this just might be what I needed, to relocate my region to Bridgemere where there was more of a community that was diverse, a place that I could continue to grow and sink my roots deeper into the Great Canadian soil.
Contacting Amara about a move, listing a few of my concerns, such as, would my business-a commercial region fit in with Bridgemere values, as I did not want to bring commercialism if they had other plans for their community. Another concern was that my store had rezzers that rez my jewelry and not wanting to create any lag for the Bridgemere regions, not noticing lag where I am located now but wanted to make sure they realized this prior to a move. Finally, I asked about Sim Surrounds and how that would affect the community since the regions join each other.
It went like this:
1. My Region is just commercial with my home on a platform 2k meters above. Is commercial a problem?
Amara : Not at all! We have plenty of commercial areas and I have a sorta kinda mall myself.
2. My store has rezzers that rez my jewelry, I do not find this causes lag, the script I have is low lag but wanted to point this out before I make a move.
Amara : Hairy is the script guy – I don’t believe it will be an issue assuming that Roddie is already OK with them -
3. Would I be able to use a sim surround or would my region butt up next to the other or should I say spoon lol
Amara : Sim surrounds are OK, but would need to be transparent from the outside so there is no interruption in the view from neighboring sims. Also- phantom- so folks can go through it
Answering any doubts I had, I felt sure this is the best move for our merchants. The only real change for my merchants would be in location and the Landmarks would all need to be updated, but this is not such a hard task to ask of someone and since I do not have a Poll to pose this question to my merchants, this is a gamble I would need to take. I feel that once the move occurred and we were all in place, they would welcome having the mall located in a mainland type community. It would bring new life back into our mall.
New Year, New Beginnings, Bridgemere this sounds like a positive move to make. If you would like to live in a community with a huge land mass, waters to sail, friends to share ideas with, I suggest this is a move that you should seriously consider. If not a move then please come visit, because that is where the Monentes Jewelry store will be located. The move will occur soon, I will be announcing the new location with new Landmarks, please visit anytime.
Thank you founders of Bridgemere for keeping this concept alive and allowing me the opportunity to call Bridgmere home.
Update! It is now 5:14 GCG Time and Roddie just informed me we are all moved! The best part is all the Landmarks will not have to be changed! The Rezzers all work and jewelry rezzing in the right direction, which saved me a lot of time! Thank you Roddie and Hairy!
Update! Wow I logged in this morning to my new home and see already they have begun to accommodate me :) Last night I was "joined" up to Amara's region, I was encroaching a bit, so I moved some rocks around and such, but this morning I am not encroaching at all, they have adjusted things so that there is more continuity. Great place, great people thank you!
