ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 2008, I met with Tracy Baetz, executive director of The Brick Store Museum in my home town of Kennebunk, Maine. We were trying to come up with a theme for a collaboration when Tracy mentioned the museum had a large collection of original posters from World War I. I was intrigued, since I knew a lot of songs from the era and had always been very moved by the trauma of the conflict. From that meeting came Over Here and “Over There!” Songs and Images of the Great War. Using slides and the actual posters to illustrate my songs, and the historical facts of the war, we created a program that was presented for Veterans Day of 2008 and Memorial Day of 2009. I was very proud of the results. Although the subject is far from pleasant, the songs are wonderful and compelling. I hope you enjoy them.
