Paul Lucas is a professional guitarist whose focus on jazz and original music has kept him on the stage for over 50 years.
The unusual part of his story is that much of this time was spent in the ‘outback’ of British Columbia, Canada. Born in South Shields, England, he moved with his family to B.C when he was nine. His was a musical, theatrical family and Paul began to see a future in music when he was in university.
A composer, performer, teacher, and author of several instruction books, his love of the wilderness kept drawing him into the mountainous back country. In 1979 Paul left the comforts of Vancouver music scene to build a cabin on the Yukon border, choosing to live a ‘wood and water’ life off the grid.
This book is about the work, the people, and the adventures of a guitar player living in the North. You can’t make this stuff up!
