Album Notes
Hank Williams once said you had to have surveyed a lot of ground over the back of a mule to sing Country Music. Marc never plowed behind a mule, but he did operate a hayrake behind a tractor on
a farm in Michigan in the summer of 1970. He was living in a canvas tent he had sewed himself by
hand at the time. The following summer, and for 2 years after Marc lived in a cabin in the Cascades
with no electricity, and no car. He installed gravity flow running water using a wooden nail keg and
200 feet of garden hose. The outhouse was on the hill behind the cabin. Although Marc moved to
town after a couple years, there was still an outhouse until Marc fixed the plumbing. Marc's son
Cedar was born in that house, and his daughter Beth was born at home in the next house they moved
to, near Duvall. That place, in the foothills of the Cascades, also had an outhouse for the first few months. The place around the corner they moved to after 5 years, built by one of Marc's bandmates, also had an outhouse. They were drinking water from the creek behind in both those places. The next place, on a 40 acre farm, had a well, and a pasture that occasionally rented out to cows, which Marc had to chase when they frequently got out. So Marc knows a bit about life in the country - he's lived there since 1970. These songs were all written out in the country, and in most cases torn from the pages of Marc's life! Marc has had some successes as a songwriter - Rockabilly star Ronnie Dawson cut Marc's "Sucker For A Cheap Guitar," and the son was also performed multiple times on Sandy Bradley's Potluck, a syndicated radio show, along with Marc's "I Like Your Face". NW R&B Diva Duffy Bishop also performed and recorded Marc's "Gonna Play With Fire." Marc has played internationally at the Winnipeg Folk Festival (Canada), the Hemsby Rock'n'Roll Weekender (England), the Country & Bluegrass Festival (Neusudende, Germany), the Big Bear Bluegrass Festival (Netherlands), and in clubs in Germany and Italy. Of course he has been performing in his native USA since 1965, and has appeared with Reba McEntire, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, the Marshall Tucker Band, Asleep At The Wheel, Jerry Jeff Walker, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Dan Hicks, David Bromberg, John Hartford, Queen Ida, Buckwheat Zydeco, Little Charlie & The Nightcats, Katie Webster, Dave Van Ronk, Glen Yarbrough, Tom Chapin and many, many others. Marc now performs many of the songs from this collection with his wife Gaby in their band the Honky Tonk Sweethearts.
