ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Heidi Muller and Bob Webb perform an eclectic mix of original songs and traditional music featuring Muller’s songwriting, crystalline vocals and unique arrangements with guitars, Appalachian dulcimers, electric cello and mandolin. Described by Dulcimer Players’ News as “one of the dulcimer community’s best songwriters and performers,” Muller made her name as a recording artist in the Pacific Northwest, releasing five CDs and touring nationally in the ‘80’s and ‘90’s (you can find Gypsy Wind and Giving Back on CDBaby). Muller’s song “Good Road” became the theme song of the Inland Folk radio show in 1989 and is still heard weekly on Northwest Public Radio and KPBX-Spokane. “Muller’s songs express down-to-earth sentiments in lovely poetry,” writes Rich Warren of Sing Out! magazine. “She sounds like she truly loves singing and wants nothing more than to share that with you.”

After living in Seattle for almost 20 years, Muller moved back east and met Webb at a music conference. They started performing together in 2003, based in Charleston, West Virginia, and in 2012 they moved back to the Northwest, settling in Enterprise, Oregon. They have released two critically acclaimed CDs, Light the Winter’s Dark, and Seeing Things. Webb, who has played cello and guitar since childhood, was a founding member of the group Stark Raven that became the house band for the National Public Radio show, Mountain Stage. In his nine years on the show, he accompanied musical stars Odetta, Tom Paxton, Shawn Colvin, Peggy Seeger, Arlo Guthrie and many others. He is also a recording engineer and producer. In 2012, he finished a three-year project sponsored by Allegheny Mountain Radio, in which he created the radio documentary “Passing It On: The Rebirth of Old-Time Music in Pocahontas County, WV,” which will soon be distributed to all National Public Radio stations. He also collaborated with Kate Long on the radio series “In Their Own Country,” which was nominated for a Peabody Award, and the radio production, “Kettle Bottom.”

Besides performing, Muller and Webb share a passion for teaching music to people of all ages. They host an annual adult music camp, Dulcimer Week in the Wallowas, and have worked extensively with at-risk children, both in the rural coalfields of southern West Virginia and in the inner city, through their own Music Mentors program and Clay Community Arts. They have published their own books for mandolin and dulcimer, and taught at dozens of folk and dulcimer festivals nationwide. They also enjoy being community artists-in-residence teaching music, songwriting, and recording oral histories from senior citizens. Funded by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, Muller collected the local history of Big Ugly Creek, WV and wrote songs with children and adults, which later culminated in a 200-page book she compiled, entitled Patchwork Dreams.
