Greg Joy

Here’s some celtic music by Greg Joy for you to listen with Spotify.

For Canadian guitar player/producer Greg Joy, his love for the folk music of the British Isles led him to the Victoria Music Conservatory in the late ’70s to study classical guitar. He has performed with a myriad of both Celtic and worldbeat groups, and has released numerous collections of Celtic and Christmas music of his own.

Performing in various groups focusing on the Celtic jigs & reels and traditional folk songs, he developed his unique acoustic guitar style which utilizes open tunings and is based on a synthesis of folk, classical and light rock influences. Greg Joy has performed extensively with guitar, flute, mandolin and hammer dulcimer, always maintaining a thread of ‘folk_baroque’ influence in his work.

Here is a video which features a slideshow of images from the vicinity of Wikaninnish and Chesterman’s Beaches near Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
