My name is Kirk Watson and I was born in December of 1954 in Sacramento, California. Currently I live in the Vancouver, British Columbia area with my wife and 2 teenaged step-children.
I make a meager living running interactive music programs in daycare and preschool facilities as well as playing bass in a couple of bands. I would probably be sleeping under a bridge if it weren't for my wife's help and support. She is the former director of the Vancouver International Children's Festival and current director of an arts center with a 500 seat theater, a smaller studio theater, an art gallery and a number of other arts related studios.
Previously I had worked for Tower Records in Sacramento (over 20 years) and in social services with disabled adults and autistic children. I love music of all kinds and enjoy film and live theater as well as other visual arts. I am not much of a heavy volume reader but do enjoy a good book now and then.
At this time I am working in a ambient/world music duo called Isshin Denshin. I cover the electronic end and Alcvin Ramos plays shakuhachi and a number of other flutes and instruments. We are working on a CD and have been playing a number of venues. We have been blessed to be joined by gifted musicians and special guests. I am excited by this project.
