More About Win C

If you don't leave one of my sets feeling just a little bit better than you did before, you either were distracted or you may just be a curmudgeon who's impossible to please. Or, I may have really messed up. Come to think of it, the possibilities are endless. But really, I try to sing my songs and play my instruments so that my viewers find their spirits lifted by the music.
I came to the US in the early 1960s and found a new musical home in the folk revival of the time. I love to sing songs that were popular at that time as well as ones that came a little later, many of them on the country side of the radio. There is a lot of joy in gospel music, and I try to share it whenever I can. This eclectic style of folk/country/gospel describes my original songs as well.
I'm a retired philosophy professor; I cherish creativity, and I'm always happy to find new outlets for it. My name is Win Corduan, and you can see and hear me on most Thursday nights at 9 pm Eastern on StreetJelly.
Fun Stuff about the Artist

Life on the Street

I may be giving away my age, but during the summer of 1967 I found myself in Greenwich Village in New York, playing music with some early "hippies" in Washington Square.. We kept it up late into the night until the local police sent us packing.

Embarrassing Moment

One embarrassing moment? How can one pick out just one over all these decades. My worst fear is always whether I will remember all the lyrics to a song, and the more I concentrate on that matter, the more likely it becomes that I'll mess up with it.

My Instrument

At age 14, I spent 5 dollars on a broken lute that I used as a guitar. It had its ornamentation knocked off, and some household wire performed the duty of the B string. At that, it sounded okay to me. A while later, on a family trip to Mexico, I picked up a guitar which was great if you ignored its warped neck. Eventually it gave way to a "Harmony" store brand, which I played for several years. By that time, I was married, and my wife referred to the guitar as my "Gertrude," the subtext being that I spent too much time with this rival for her attention. Eventually in the early eighties someone gave me a Yamaha G-235, already dubbed Sarah. She has been joined by Fred (a Yamaha FG 260 12-string guitar), Joe (my banjo), and George (my accoustic/electric base). I also play a dulcimer, an auto harp, and a three-string cigar box guitar, none of which have ever been christened. I should not forget about my collection of harmonicas, but is it going too far if I mention my kazoo here?
