Album Notes
Dave Fogarty born and raised in small town Stellarton Nova Scotia, began writing in his high school years. He travelled across Canada as a young man in search of life. Later, back home he began to play around with the acoustic guitar.

Years later in 1985 Dave moved to a century old farm in rural Nova Scotia with his wife and family. He began the process of raising children, sheep, and chickens in that order. He even tried his hand at logging with a big old Clydesdale horse. While planting gardens, gathering hay and tending the needs of children Dave began to write. He started to put his words to the musical melodies he was learning on the guitar. For years he thrilled family and friends with his truthful and simple words of life around him. Along with his rich wealth of human nature he had gathered during his younger years of travel his songs struck the hearts of many.

Dave began to play his songs in local venues. It was during this time that he met Mike Porter. Mikes musical talents complimented Dave's creations so well that a friendship was immediate. Dave was thrilled that such a well accomplished musician as Mike Porter liked his work. The two friends began to play at the local Crossroads Café where their following began to grow. The idea of putting these wonderful songs down on tape came to the forefront with friends and acquaintances wanting a tape of this song or that.

Emerging Seed was born, Dave's first CD is best described by journalist Stacy Doiron in her coverage of the CD release. Good music. Good company. Not a seat was left untaken and scarcely a spot on the floor left unoccupied for the release of Dave Fogarty's CD, held in conjunction with the final Cross Roads Café' of the season. The intimate setting of the Café', with its warm atmosphere, mugs of coffee and people settling in to enjoy some music was the perfect place for Fogarty to share the unveiling of his creation. Recorded over a span of two days, Feb12 and 13, 2001 at Wee House of Music in Pictou," Emerging Seed" features all original material from Fogarty. The music created by Fogarty and Porter is rich and mellow, it has something of peacefulness and truth running through it like a grain in wood, connecting you with nature and the natural state of things in life. As he sings in "Simple Things", "I"m watching the world spring alive again , another growing season , warm winds and rain. I"m marveling at Mother Nature painting the landscape, I'm breathing in the oxygen that dissipates." Another song, Shepherdess", he wrote for his wife, Thelma. "She's a girl with a dream, in a woven, woollen dress. She's the life, she's the lady, she's the shepherdess. Mike Porter Plays mandolin on "Shepherdess" and also on " Somewhere, Sometime". Coyotes was written from the constant threat they are to sheep and farmer. The most requested song Ain't No Money in the Bank speaks for itself in that everyone seems to relate to the absence of it. No Delay is for the fly fisherman who's best friend his dog is always ready to tag along even when she's on her last legs. Other songs make up heart felt feelings of circumstances and places that have created fond memories and a well from which to draw the raw truth and realities of the past and project them into the future.

Absolutely wonderful merge of poetry with acoustics and emotions
High quality poetry, emersing us in every day life and experiences with a wonderful weave of guitar that flows with emotion and flair.

A thoroughly lovely listen, that you could play over and over again.

I would recommend this CD for any collection.

Emerging Seed
Really liked this CD. Simple and tight and never cute. Bought all three CDs but listened to this one the most so far. Makes me wish I had a big barn with a nice little stereo and some wood to carve as I listen to Dave. Easy to listen to and well written. Just what the doctor ordered. I can\'t wait to hear him live sometime.
