ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
79 years not too long to wait for Old Town School student’s first CD

What do Joni Mitchell, Iris DeMent, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger and Tom Waits have in common? Among other things, their music appears on The Circle Game, a newly released, nine song CD by seventy-nine year old singer and guitarist Marge Weber of Elk Grove Village.

“The day I walked into the Old Town School, I felt embraced with acceptance,” said Weber. “Since I sang in church as a child, music has been important. As my ears opened up, I learned to love songwriters, singers and songs from so many different times. I have been encouraged every step of my musical journey by my many teachers. I found I was able to do so much more than I ever could have imagined.”

“My husband and I had such a busy life,” she said. “We were raising kids, keeping our church going and taking in foster children. When I turned seventy I told my son that I regretted not taking the time to learn the guitar better. He suggested that he and I take classes together at the Old Town School of Folk Music, and so we did.”

There Weber began working with instructor Mark Dvorak, making friends and participating in musical activities.
“The experiences I’ve had at the Old Town School, and working with Mark and my other teachers, has changed my life. It has absolutely changed my life,” she said.

“Marge has changed our lives too,” said Dvorak, who produced The Circle Game, and walked Weber through the process of rehearsing and recording the material for the CD. 

“We first came to know Marge through her love of music and singing,” he said. “She is an inspiration. She has taught us that growing older takes courage and grace. She has showed us that it’s so essential to stay active, to keep learning and to keep nourishing one’s own creative spirit. I’m so grateful to have had the chance to work with her on this project. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

“I guess it’s taken me awhile to make my first CD,” said Weber. “But believe me, it’s been worth the wait!”

The CD, released on Dvorak’s own Ten Fingers label, features nine titles. Most of the songs Weber learned in her classes at the Old Town School, but some she discovered and learned on her own. 

The track listing includes, The Circle Game by Joni Mitchell, Let the Mystery Be, by Iris Dement, Long Way Home, by Tom Waits, Make You Feel My Love, by Bob Dylan, Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream, by Ed McCurdy, Lord, I’ve Got Some Singing To Do, by Robert Schmertz, Old Devil Time, by Pete Seeger, Passing Through, by Catie Curtis and Mark Erelli, and On My Grandma’s Patchwork Quilt, by Larry Penn. Dvorak accompanies Weber on each of the tracks playing guitar, banjo and bass.
