Dr. Jeffrey P. Charest, my youngest brother, earned his Doctor of Philosophy (Music), Ethnomusicology, through Cardiff University School of Music in Cardiff, Wales, in 2019. However, he has been writing short stories, prose, poetry, and folk music for over 20 years. He tends to not keep a lot of his work for reasons known only to himself. After a lot of pushing and prodding in early 2021 I managed to get copies of some of his writing, along with permission to publish it.
So, I present a small collection of Dr. Jeffrey P. Charest’s early writing and artwork here on this humble blog, published online for the first time anywhere. I continue to work on getting more of his writing and art. I have also starting to post some of his best video clips playing and restoring esoteric folks instruments.
Dr. Charest is currently a wandering scholar-musician living in
Oakland, California ; Cardiff, Wales ; Shkodër, Albania ; Święte Katarzyna, Poland ; Essaouira, Rabat, Morocco. He can be contacted at email@example.com.
