This exciting videoconference event will combine historical and cultural information about the indigenous Australian instrument, the Didgeridu, as well as live performance. Jim Gagnon and accompanist Jim Donovan (Founding member of the multi-platinum selling band Rusted Root and current Saint Francis University Instructor of Music) will give this interactive presentation. A question/answer session will follow the Performance/Lecture.


Jim Gagnon was born and raised in a suburb of Pittsburgh called, "Oakmont".  He enlisted in the U.S. Navy for four years, where he toured the Mediterranean Sea twice, and was actually on the scene for the first gulf war.  After the Navy, Jim attended and graduated from the Edgar Cayce School in Virginia Beach in '05, where he studied different modes of healing, meditation, yoga, and energy work. It was here that Jim became interested in drumming as a means of exploration and healing. During this time Jim began making didgeridus, and teaching classes and workshops. Gagnon is a free-lance writer, cultural music enthusiast, painter, and producer of four CDs, the latest being "The Great Dance", by his group Dreamtime Project.

He currently lives with his 8 year old son, Isaiah, in Charlottesville, Va.
