Album Notes
If you're looking for a fascinating folk listening experience, pop Porch Swing into your CD player, kick back and imagine yourself rocking on "Mrs. Kate's" Porch Swing and listening to the musical story of her life as a country pastor's wife. You'll laugh at "Lima Beans" and learn to save on your food bill. You'll wince and whine along with "Why are there Fire Ants?" You'll warm up to the special relationship between husband and wife in "Faithful, Always Faithful." You'll crack up at the "Preacher's Wife Blues" and nod for a snooze during the "Nap Song." Quilters will enjoy "The Old Sew and Sew," and bakers will revel in "Homemade Bread." Moms will rejoice in "Joy to be a Mother" and older fellas will find comfort in "Clean Old Men." The craziest song of all is "The Plague", a scary song about your kids getting head lice at school. Songwriters don't come much wackier than Mrs. Kate, but she'll warm your heart, too.

Reviews of Porch Swing:

"Despite bumper to bumper traffic, the songs kept a smile on my face … Kate celebrates the colors of the simple things around us. She brings home the importance of small things, the incredibly large gifts of God which we too easily take for granted." --Paul Garfinkel, Singer/Songwriter, Florida"

I love "Rocking Chair" and "The Old Sew and Sew" songs. I almost have the sewing song memorized and it plays in my head all day long, even when it isn't playing on my CD player. What have you done to me? Your music is fabulous! So catchy!" -- Barbara Rosen, Pine Needle Basket Artist, Alligator Pt., FL

"I have fallen in love with your whole CD. I listen over and over again to your songs. I have laughed; I have been joyous; I have cried, and wept tears of nostalgia." -- Sharon Sanchez, Grandmother, Peru
