Paul Sveum wrote and recorded this a few years ago. It's our unoffical theme song, and we've used it in a bunch of our videos. In addition to being a talented musician and good friend, Paul is a first-class bushcraft instructor who has spent several years working with the students at Northland College in Wisconsin.
This was recorded during a course last July at night around the fire. We had three amazingly talented musicians on the course, and they spent several nights entertaining the rest of us. That night I tried out a little audio recorder and I think the results are amazing.
If you listen in the background you can hear the fire cracking and popping at the beginning and the end.
The musicians are Adam Kearney and Jim Brady on the guitar and Paul Sveum on the banjo.
Welcome to the new Jack Mountain Bushcraft podcast!
We're a full-time, year-round bushcraft and wilderness survival school and a traditional Maine guide service with offices in Wolfeboro, New Hamphire and a bushcraft and sustainability field school on the banks of Aroostook River in Masardis, Maine. We run field-based, college-level semester and yearlong immersion programs in bushcraft and wilderness guide training, courses on tradtional north woods crafts, nature programs for kids and classes on sustainable living and wilderness survival.
Unlike the large, corporate outdoor schools, our focus isn't on traveling through the wilderness as an outsider or tourist using high-tech gear as an umbilical cord back to town. Instead we teach traditional bushcraft skills and nature lore through which you learn that you're an active part of the natural world, not an observer. For more information as well as specifics on what we do, visit us at jackmtn.com.
We're excited about sharing some of the audio files we've recorded over the years with you. Stay tuned!
