Greg Halpin, BA 10

As a student at Concordia’s Liberal Arts College, Halpin studied the great works of Western civilization. “I wanted an education that would help me with my songwriting and I think that comes through in a lot of my songs,” he says.

Halpin began busking in Montreal metro stations, singing and playing acoustic guitar, with a heavy slant on Bob Dylan songs.

“It started as a way to play music and get a little bit of money,” Halpin says. “Eventually, I realized I was making more money than I was with the odd jobs I was picking up here and there.”

Busking didn’t only provide financial assistance but also taught Halpin valuable lessons as a singer. “It gives you instant feedback about how you’re playing and how you’re performing. I think it’s been really useful to me as a performer,” he says.
