ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Troubadour Volume Two
September 26, 2010

I have collected 24 of my song to present in two volumes and let you hear them the way I wrote them, just the guitar, the voice, and the story. There was a time I would have filled in all the arcane references, the back story and all the things that triggered the story becoming a song. I am finally beginning to trust the songs enough to let them tell themselves and let you the listener fill in the blanks. The hard part was picking 24 songs from a catalog of about 150 “keepers” that have chronicled my journey over the past twenty some years.

I realize in some ways this is an organic animist’s gospel song book and in some ways it’s a simple journal of people places, thoughts and experiences. I have been privileged to share the road with quite a few special people who have encouraged me in this crazy dream of being a “troubadour”. Always first and foremost is my partner in crime and life, Cynthia Whiddon Green. She has share the adventures and (as often as I could prevail) the stage. The songs are as much hers as mine. A very close second is our amazing brood of children (now all adults). They shared the miles cramped in a little car sleeping on my guitar, the camping gear and the sound system. 21 years later we have added grandchildren who keep us on the road along with the music.

To try and mention so many others who encouraged and kept me writing would risk leaving someone out so I’ll trust you all know who you are. Letting the music come full circle has been a challenge. No harmony or instruments to hide between.
