Album Notes

On December 6, 1907 the worst mining disaster in US history occurred at Monongah, West Virginina. The official death count was 361 (some say 367) but it was much higher as the sons of the miners often worked with them to increase their tonnage. Some place the number at as many as 500 or more.

Most of the workers had been recruited from foreign countries, Italians comprising the largest group of laborers.

Monongah Mine Disaster was mixed and mastered by Mark Poole at Zone 8 Studio.

Dan has played with some great players over the years; US flatpicking champ Robin Kessinger, Grammy nominee Phil Keaggy, Grammy winner Phil Madeira (appeared not long ago on Colbert’s TV show with Emmylou Harris), pop legend Nedra Talley Ross of the Ronettes, and son-of-a-legend Roy Clark Jr. As for me, I am featured in Travis Stimeling's new book, Songwriting In Contemporary West Virginia.

The CD/songs have received recognition in the New Song/Mountain Stage Contest, Song Of The Year Contest, Worldwide Singer/Songwriter Music Search, Just Plain Folks Awards, East Coast Songwriters Contest, and the Independent Music Awards.
