Album Notes
Everyone has a door through which they pass into the various worlds and hats required or desired to maintain a life. It’s the threshold of that doorway where the heart, experience, and imagination give color to the day. That’s where I go, hangin’ at the doorway, upon the threshold, looking out into the living, moving worlds. Strange language, I know. I’ve always had this thing about finding ways to translate my experience, so I’m workin’ on it.

For over 40 years guitar has been my main instrument and with it I enjoy classical and jazz as much as gut bucket. Through poetry I’ve found other voices in percussion and home made instruments to accompany my work, which can go from dreamy to earthy and back again. I have performed at numerous venues around Texas, including the Kerrville Folk Festival, as well as venues in Michigan and Ohio, and many places around the US. Lately I’ve had the good fortune to be working with bassist Kurt Huffman.

My new CD grew out of the enthusiasm and insistence of Jimmy George at Roost Studio to showcase some of my unrecorded songs. With his amazing musicianship, studio prowess and patient help as well as the accompaniment of other fine musicians I am pleased to bring you my new work Where the Heart Lingers.
