My guest, Catherine Thompson is leading an extraordinary life. Born in Canada, she is living a somewhat nomadic existence mostly in the west of Canada. In the years of 2011-13 she traveled, on horseback, more than 2500 km through the southern plains of Saskatchewan and Alberta. She is presently based in a small mountain village in the north of Thailand where she has set up a musical instrument making and composing studio.
We are talking about Irish music, instrument making, connecting with nature and how to accept the ongoing mass extinction.
