Album Notes
In the Summer of 2013, I re-read the journals of Lucy Hamilton Stevens Kerr, my great-great grand mother.
In these journals, Lucy chronicled the early years of her marriage to newly elected US Congressman, the Honorable John Bozman Kerr. She mentioned that her voice was one of the qualities that her husband admired. She would also, from time to time, mention playing piano and singing for him and the company they kept. In reading the journals, I ran across the titles of some songs and went in search of what they sounded like. But to no avail. However, at the US Library of Congress website, I was able to find copies of sheet music she likely played and sang from. I also found a treasure trove of other sheet music that also likely hadn’t been played or sung in many years.

- James Callahan, Oct 2013.
